Gartner’s newest analytics report highlights four emerging vendors in the space that offer innovative alternatives to generating insight from IoT devices. Gartner’s Cool Vendors in Internet of Things Analytics, 2017 takes particular interest in the manufacturing process, device diagnostics, repair, and maintenance. The enterprise technology research giant recommends that data and analytics leaders target specific domain use cases to ensure that analytics adds value to ongoing IoT applications.

Additionally, Gartner’s analysts add: “Analytics enables the most visible impact of the IoT. It drives new business scenarios and empowers individuals. The possibilities for analytics are limitless, and ever-growing data sources present more opportunities to innovate through holding novel insights. But currently, data and analytics leaders should narrow their focus to deriving additional value from the ongoing IoT implementations.” Some of the examples they include are increasing the lifespan of existing equipment, optimizing assets, predictive device maintenance, anomaly detection in the manufacturing process, and finding new product usage patterns.

Now on to the vendors:
