Interactive Map of IoT Organizations — TAKE 2

I am very excited to re-launch my Interactive Map of IoT Organizations. The first version launched a couple of months ago and received a lot of great feedback and some constructive feedback too.

Here are the material changes from the first version:

  1. Each organization now has their specific address instead of being city-based
    I went back to every organization’s site to find their address. Some organizations are hard to find in the physical world, especially many of the small ones. For global organizations with no headquarters like Open Source organizations such as MicroPython, I look for the top contributor on GitHub and used the City they are from (not their home address!)
  2. “Knock knock, who’s there?” – I enjoy learning about each company and how they started so I can live vicariously through them. Where I had time and could find the information, I now include the Founder(s) of the organization and a link to more information about them. This is in addition to the “Founded” year which was in the first version

  3. Category cleanup in Aisle 2″ – I played with the categories and I am still not happy with them. I’ve been researching how the IoT research companies categorize companies. Yes, I know, it sounds redundant to research research companies! I will publish a post on my findings and wil be revising my taxonomy as well. Folks are still trying to determine what it means to be an IoT Platform. For me, it’s most important to focus on standards and integration of systems as there will be organizations that specialize in one aspect of an IoT platform whether it’s the analytics, rules engine, device management, workflow, or visualization functions.

  4. More soup please” – The initial launch of the map had 246 organizations, this new map has 759 organizations. Thanks to many people on LinkedIn and through blog comments for suggesting their companies which accounted for 180 additional organizations. The other 330+ organizations I have been finding on my own by trolling news, Twitter, IoT conference Web sites, “Partners” sections of each organization.

I set up a Twitter account @EyeOhTee and although I still need to tweet more, you may see some interesting news on there and feel free to tweet out this post, plug plug!

Besides the basic data shown on the map, I also track many more attributes of each product within areas below. I will publish additional findings and analysis on this blog and LinkedIn.

  • Platform Features (Real-time Analytics, Device Management…)
  • Security (SSL, TLS…) & Authentication (OAuth, SAML, RADIUS…)
  • Integrations (to other products)
  • Application (Web, iOS, Android)
  • Notifications (SMS, email, Push…)
  • Local Storage
  • Hardware Platform
  • Operating System
  • Programming Languages
  • Wired Interface (ENET, GPIO, USB, RTU…)
  • Wireless Interface (BLE, Wi-Fi, 2G/3G, LPWAN…)
  • Location Interface (GPS, GNSS…)

I love to travel although it has been a while so, for each company, I have fun going to Google Street View to see where the company is based and what is around them. It’s surprising to see where the Internet of Things is growing. This is one of my favorites, not only growing Pumpkins but also a hardware platform.

I hope you find the map useful and I would love to hear if, and how, it has helped you. Whether you located a company in your area to collaborate or a supplier for a problem you are trying to solve or just learning like me it will have made it worth the time I spend on this.

Without further ado, here is the [ map ]

Please excuse the Google ads as they help show my wife that I can generate a few $ to compensate and cover my DigiKey purchases!

Finally, thanks to David Oro for the additional exposure on IoT Central.

      Hi Anita, with the v2 map I updated a few days ago Bosch appears now at Gerlingen-Schillerhöhe, Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany 70839

      Hope that’s correct! Best, Bernie

    Great idea and the map will get VERY busy!
    I went live with my IoT platform (all open source software) in 2005 and went to the cloud as soon as that service matured sufficiently. It is totally hardware and protocol agnostic and we have data streams coming to us via gateways supporting 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, ZigBee, PLC, Sigfox, LoRaWAN, licenced spectrum RF, RFID, hard wired, etc. Data can be loaded manually online or pushed and pulled using ftp, XML, email, sms, etc. The range of end points involved is huge. Our processing engine standardises all the data (intervals, calendar months, units) to allow aggregation and calculation and trend analysis. Information is pushed and pulled to/by any smart phone, tablet or computer. Custom modules have been developed to suit the specific needs of particular applications (eg cooling towers, data centres, and solar plants). We focus on the industrial and environmental sectors as opposed to personal or domestic applications.
    We provide technical, strategic, planning, and operational and data analytics support to customers for the total data supply chain from sensor to the end user GUI.
    We have offices at 10 Clarke Street Crows Nest NSW Australia and Crosshaven, County Cork Ireland

      Hi Robert, thanks so much for the awesome submission and you have a very interesting solution being vendor agnostic and feature rich. I can only put one address on the map so used the 10 Clarke Street one. All the best! Bernie

    Certainly it is difficult to label the IoT organizations in different categories. In our case, Symplio Lifestyle Technologies that we have developed our own architecture end-to-end which includes devices, gateways, and proprietary platform oriented both to industry and to the business of the sportainment, is it correct to identify as IoT platform provider? I don´t think so, because we´re not only that. Are we manufacturers of wereables? Not while we have designed our own wereables but we don´t produce internally. It´s complicated, but I think that it’s architecture IoT end to end could fit well. What do you think Bernie?.

    Thanks again for the great work you´re doing¡

      Hi Susana, thanks for the note and ongoing support! I’ve changed the Category to “IoT Platform” for now for Symplio until I have better categories. In my “database” I keep multiple rows one for each product line so that way down the road I will be able to have multiple categories per company/organization.

      I’m now posting organizations on https://twitter.com/EyeOhTee, the new Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/IoTmap, and on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/eyeohtee
