MachNation developers test IoT platforms in MIT-E and then provide hands-on test data to enterprises looking to evaluate and buy IoT platform services. According to the company, there are over 400 IoT platforms in the market worldwide with various capabilities, and, until now, there were no reputable sources of data comparing the actual use of IoT platforms.
"By having our developers connect devices to and test these platforms, we can provide extremely useful enterprise data related to platform access control, analytics, data management, device management, event processing, integration and monitoring," says Dima Tokar, CTO and head analyst, MachNation. "Enterprises can review MIT-E test data based on tests of 70 workflows with 280 detailed scores for each IoT platform."
The MIT-E database has thousands of data points, says the company, offering enterprises a rich source of comparison data. MIT-E was launched with tests of five major IoT platforms: Amazon AWS IoT, Bosch IoT Suite, GE Predix, IBM Watson IoT Platform, and Microsoft IoT.
MachNation estimates that these five platforms account for 15% of worldwide IoT platform sales today, leaving hundreds of other platforms competing for an IoT platform market that will be worth $65 billion worldwide by 2026, says the company.
For a limited time, the company is offering a complete MIT-E Report of the five vendors' test data with a filterable Microsoft Excel file for $395. Additional IoT vendors are continually being added to MIT-E, the company says. A free sample MIT-E report covering Amazon AWS IoT is available on the company's website.
