Microsoft be the leader of overall IoT platform landscape, AWS 2nd: Report

Microsoft be the leader of overall IoT platform landscape, AWS 2nd

Microsoft Azure IoT platform is currently leading the general Internet of Things (IoT) landscape in 26 out of 35 capabilities across Edge IoT, Cloud IoT and Platform Performance categories, a new report has documented.

 Microsoft Azure IoT platform is currently leading the general Internet of Things (IoT) landscape in 26 out of 35 capabilities across Edge IoT, Cloud IoT and Platform Performance categories, a new report has documented.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) led in 10 out of 35 capabilities within the overall IoT evaluation while Huawei ranked third offering edge to cloud capabilities, consistent with Counterpoint Research which used its proprietary CORE (Competitive Rankings & Evaluation) framework that evaluated leading 20 IoT platform players to succeed in this conclusion.

"The IoT market is essentially still a blue ocean and within the nascent stages, with enough room for each IoT platform to grow and achieve success as we see millions of enterprises and governments kickstart their digital transformation initiatives," said Neil Shah, VP Research at Counterpoint.

"Moving into the new decade, we also expect healthy mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity to deal with several capability gaps between incumbents and startups identified by our research," Shah added.

Coming from a robust enterprise cloud business, Microsoft Azure IoT is that the only end-to-end platform that has successfully built its Edge IoT capabilities and offers greater interoperability with other value chain players.

"Amazon AWS IoT has also done well in terms of completeness taking advantage of a strong Cloud IoT and Application Enablement capabilities. Further, AWS has been building its edge capabilities via AWS Greengrass," said the report.

However, the report said, AWS Greengrass still lags Microsoft and other edge-first vendors to supply a complicated and scalable edge data analytics engine. Amazon was the leader in 10 out of 35 capabilities in our evaluation.

Huawei Ocean Connect offers several edge components offering edge chipsets, to devices, to software, complementing its Cloud IoT capabilities.

"Huawei features a growing customer base within China and Europe, however, current US sanctions could slow its enterprise IoT business outside China," the report added.

IBM leads in Cloud IoT components, benefitting from its industry leading position in Cloud and ML/AI space. RedHat acquisition also strengthens the sting software, security and virtualization offering.

"However, IBM must advance its edge analytics capabilities and expand its partnership roster to maximize the sting IoT opportunity," the report mentioned.

IoT is becoming more pervasive as more and more devices are being connected to the cloud via the web to watch , analyze, and take action.

"The next wave of digital transformation are going to be driven by these intelligent edge devices and corresponding highly scalable and secure IoT software," said Peter Richardson, VP Research.
