Authors: Chad Huston, Lionel Lamy, Gard Little, Ali Zaidi
Abstract

This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of the 2016 worldwide IoT professional services market through the IDC MarketScape model. This research is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace and help anticipate its ascendancy. This IDC MarketScape covers 15 vendors participating in the worldwide IoT professional services market. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and set of parameters expected to be most conducive to success in providing cloud professional services during both the short term and the long term.

"When buyers were asked what characteristics were required for an IoT professional services project to be successful at a worldwide level, the number 1 characteristic was 'ability to achieve desired business outcomes' followed by 'deliver innovation for your solution,'" said Gard Little, research director, Digital Transformation Professional Services Research. "Buyers are telling IT suppliers that IoT success will come from knowing how to deliver business outcomes using innovative thinking."
