IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Managed IoT Connectivity Services 2023 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study presents a worldwide vendor assessment of managed IoT connectivity services providers, looking specifically at how they are addressing the demand for global IoT connectivity services and connectivity management platforms to manage and analyze IoT device fleets. In this assessment, the IDC MarketScape model was used to evaluate both quantitative metrics and qualitative insights that define success in the managed IoT connectivity services market. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses each vendor relative to the criteria and to one another.
"While many service providers offer cellular connectivity services, a sustainable business model remains elusive for some," says Sandra Wendelken, senior research analyst, Mobile and IoT Services at IDC. "The most successful worldwide managed IoT connectivity service providers are continuing to differentiate and to add value to their services for enterprises with IoT deployments."
