“With ILS Technology’s ability to facilitate otherwise complex integration with IT systems and ThingWorx’s ‘drag and drop’ codeless Mashup Builder allowing developers and business users to create applications, real-time dashboards, collaborative workspaces, and mobile interfaces, both companies are displaying real innovation that will translate into increased success in the future,” said Andrew Brown, the executive director of enterprise and M2M research at Strategy Analytics.

According to David Kerr, the vice president of wireless at Strategy Analytics, winners in the M2M applications market in future will include service providers that have opened up their APIs for the use of M2M applications on their connectivity platforms.
