As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow and pervade many areas of daily life, several companies have been quick to pursue this lucrative opportunity. According to Business Insider, below are four companies making notable, innovative contributions to the IoT field that will be worth watching in the days to come.
Honeywell: With a focus on integrating digital technologies into manufacturing, Honeywell offers strategies to businesses interested in incorporating internet of things technologies into their operations, but are ill-equipped to do so on their own.
Hitachi: Hitachi seeks to be the guide that novice companies can turn to when exploring unknown territory in the IoT. The company offers services to assist its clients in applying IoT solutions while preparing them to become independent innovators in the IoT space.
Comcast: In attempt to recover from losses in the domain of traditional pay-TV, Comcast is wasting no time delving into the IoT and making strategic moves. In addition to acquiring a smaller company that develops technology for connected home security devices, Comcast hired a former HP executive who had previously debuted the IoT and wearable businesses at HP.
T-Mobile: This wireless carrier has had a head start in the IoT business after debuting its IoT program in 2005 (through its Value Added Reseller channel) and creating a specialized IoT team in 2008. T-Mobile is continuing to make strides with its recent partnership with a cellular communications platform that could affect how IoT developers work.
Also in the IoT playing field are popular vendors such as Google, Amazon Web Services, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), according to a recent report by MarketsandMarkets. The report mentioned that many of these vendors are expanding their market reach by adopting partnerships and collaborations.
