By easing integration, InterDigital’s wot.io plays a vital role in the rapidly evolving IoT sector
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — September 14, 2016 — InterDigital's James J. Nolan, EVP, IoT Solutions, InterDigital Communications, Inc. and Tom Gilley, Venture Partner, Momenta Partners garnered accolades at Frost & Sullivan’s 2016 Excellence in Best Practices Awards Banquet. Mr Gilley, one of the wot.io's founders, accepted the prestigious Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership at the glittering event at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, London, on Tuesday, June 28th.
The award underlines the company’s competitive spirit in making its flagship product, the wot.io solution, stand out amongst the clutter of IoT platforms, devices and data services. The wot.io has simplified the extraction of actionable insights from voluminous data by unifying various data sources and routing them to third-party data services. It ultimately enables clients to develop flexible and tailored IoT solutions, and scale up as their IoT requirements change.
wot.io is a middleware layer that accelerates time-to-market for IoT deployments. “InterDigital’s strategy is to deploy its IoT technologies through best-of-breed system integrators, aggregators and service providers across industries such as industrial, healthcare, automation and transportation,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Director, Adrian Drozd. “It helps customers and partners deliver advanced IoT applications and facilitates data exchange, thus unlocking true data value.”
Given the rapidly changing needs of end users, InterDigital’s product line is distinct for the ease with which it allows users to add or remove IoT applications/services from it. “InterDigital continues to develop and extend a broad range of strategic partnerships spanning analytics, business intelligence, reporting, monitoring and data visualization,” noted Drozd. “Data services providers are strongly drawn to the wot.io operating environment, as it gives them access to a growing client base and facilitates integration with other IoT-focused solutions.”
Overall, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to recognize InterDigital for its innovative strategies in strengthening its brand and, thereby, demand for its products, in the intensely competitive IoT platform market.
Every year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has leveraged competitive intelligence to successfully execute a competitive strategy that results in stronger market share, competitive brand positioning and customer satisfaction.
