At a time when certain hardware components are being commoditized, the incessant time-to-market and cost pressures facing OEMs are offering EICS vendors opportunities to leverage their expertise to create new value. This research program analyzes the commercial market for embedded system integration services as sold by EICS vendors. The analysis examines the portion of this services market associated with M2M and connected systems.
As embedded computing components become more commoditized, suppliers of these products see integration and related services as the cash-producing engine that will bolster revenue and, most importantly, profit margins. For many suppliers, M2M deployments will be the gateway to service revenues. Other suppliers will find that their customers will be more receptive to services proposals but it will be critical contracts be structured to avoid the transfer of an inordinate amount of risk to suppliers. To avoid future commoditization what will matter most will be the quantity of unique intellectual property such as middleware, customized drivers, cloud-based resources, or application software that suppliers are able to integrate into the solution. Otherwise, the act of integrating commodity products into a system won't be perceived as very valuable.
