Ranking criteria are by no means always transparent, and the range of candidates is enormous. According to researchers at NelsonHall, L&T Technology , for example, is a leader in the field of IT services . Why? According to the analysts, an industrial background and the continuous expansion of IoT services with its own IoT platform make the pure-play engineering service provider clearly stand out from the competition and bring direct benefits to industrial customers. The NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment Tool (NEAT) for IoT-Services also named Capgemini , a globally leading provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, as a leader back in July.

Apart from IoT services, platforms, IoT security and analytics are also becoming increasingly important. In this case, researchers at ISG researchers have helped in their comparison (tailored to Germany) of providers for " Internet of Things (I4.0) Platforms, Services & Solutions ": They see the market being driven by platform providers such as Bosch SI , Forcam and relayr .
