Interactive Map of IoT Organizations -- TAKE 2

I am excited to launch the 2nd version of my Interactive Map of IoT Organizations  Thanks for all the support and encouragement from David Oro!

https://www.diku.ca/blog/2016/12/04/interactive-map-of-iot-organizations-take-2/

Here are the material changes from the first version:

  1. Each organization now has their specific address instead of being city-based
  2. Now includes the Founder(s) of the organization and a link to more information about them. This is in addition to the “Founded” year which was in the first version
  3. Cleanup of categories. Folks are still trying to determine what it means to be an IoT Platform. For me, it’s most important to focus on standards and integration of systems as there will be organizations that specialize in one aspect of an IoT platform whether it’s the analytics, rules engine, device management, workflow, or visualization functions.
  4. The initial launch of the map had 246 organizations, this new map has 759 organizations. Thanks to many people on LinkedIn and through blog comments for suggesting their companies which accounted for 180 additional organizations. The other 330+ organizations I have been finding on my own by trolling news, Twitter, IoT conference Web sites, “Partners” sections of each organization.

I set up a Twitter account @EyeOhTee and although I still need to tweet more, you may see some interesting news on there and feel free to tweet out this post, plug plug!

Besides the basic data shown on the map, I also track many more attributes of each product. I will publish additional findings and analysis on this blog and here on IoT Central.

I hope you find the map useful and I would love to hear if, and how, it has helped you. Whether you located a company in your area to collaborate or a supplier for a problem you are trying to solve or just learning like me it will have made it worth the time I spend on this.

Matt Turck, a venture capitalist at FirstMark, has mapped out the Internet of Things Landscape for 2016.

Matt notes "The IoT today is largely at this inflection point where “the future is already here but it is not evenly distributed”. From ingestibles, wearables, AR/VR headsets to connected homes and factories, drones, autonomous cars and smart cities, a whole new world (and computing paradigm) is emerging in front of us. But as of right now, it just feels a little patchy, and it doesn’t always look good, or work great – yet."

The chart above is great, but it's his thoughtful and detailed blog post that's definitely worth your time. He covers the booming investment, the seemingly glacial pace for the end user, jockeying by large corporations, and what it all means for start-ups.
