"Best in class" in IoT platforms based on open source

The research company PAC | teknowlogy group Radar observes that IoT platforms based on open source are receiving more attention in the market and that also business users tend to consider them as a potential option in the IoT space. Based on this, PAC | teknowlogy Group for the first time has evaluated IoT platforms based on open source.

One reason the research company sees for the growing importance is that IoT platforms based on open source provide a continuous stream of improvement. The faster this stream is, the better for the users. This includes for instance bug fixing on existing code, but also the development of totally new components to enhance the current functionality.
