第4章 結論



Bullish forecasts for the Internet of Things (IoT) abound. Some indicate that 6.4 billion things will be connected by the end of 2016 - that's 5.5 million new things every day this year - and that the number will grow to 20.8 billion connected things by 2020. Others put the growth of the market closer to 200 billion by 2020. Still others focus on the projected value, saying that the global worth of IoT will be around $6.2 trillion by 2025.

This report, which focuses on such IoT platforms, is the first in a series of research documents based on the Future of Virtualization program, an ongoing research project that defines the scope of the business opportunity that virtualization affords communications service providers (CSPs) and provides a realistic timeline for its deployment. Virtuapedia is built upon a comprehensive taxonomy of subjects that cover virtualization technologies, services, standards, partnerships, companies and people involved.

IoT platforms perfectly illustrate the impact that virtualization has on a market. IoT platforms accelerate and simplify IoT development with solution components that can be replicated across industries and market segments by providing a secure, flexible software stack that serves as the foundational framework for data, device and application management for an IoT solution. Platform users differentiate their offerings by focusing on information gleaned from data rather than functionality. Instead of trying to distinguish offerings in terms of connectivity integration, device management or data collection, platform users gain the benefit of framework integration. Such frameworks vary between vendors, as shown in the report, but their overriding goal is to underscore the usefulness of IoT by enabling predictive analytics, security, prototyping, testing and more. Also vastly important is that AEPs integrate with third-party systems in many ways, including application programming interfaces (API), software development kits (SDKs) and gateways.

Regardless of how quickly IoT grows or how many devices ultimately are connected, application enterprise platforms will play an integral role. AEP serves as a communication hub, connecting and managing devices and processing and sharing data with relevant processes and people.

IoT platform vendors will continue to build out their offerings as IoT matures, but it's imperative for them to develop a strong network of system integrator and other technology partners.

‘Future of Virtualization: Focus on IoT Platforms’ examines application enablement platforms for the IoT, utilizing data collected from nine companies that provide such solutions. It also analyzes where the market is today, as well as investments vendors are making into the technology and trends expected over the next 18-24 months. Further, the report discusses vendor strategies and profiles. Finally, it provides a detailed comparative analysis of solutions.

The following excerpt is a comparative analysis of IoT platforms, showing the great diversity that is abundant in the market.

‘Future of Virtualization: Focus on IoT Platforms’ is published in PDF format.
