By Ken Briodagh May 17, 2017

According to a recent announcement, Ovum, a market research and consulting firm, has announced the three winners of its IoT Futures Awards, which are presented to companies that have moved the IoT industry forward through innovative thinking, practical use of IoT services, enablement of IoT ecosystems, and advocacy of the kind of benefits IoT can deliver.

The awards were presented by Ovum President and Managing Director Aneil Rakity following Ovum’s IoT Futures conference in Santa Clara, California. IoT Futures brought together many of the industry’s IoT decision makers to hear the latest trends from Ovum analysts and fellow market leaders through a series of panel discussions.

IoT Market Award

Cisco has been named as the winner of Ovum’s IoT Market Award, which goes to the company that has played a major role in the development of industrialized IoT across the entire market. Cisco’s technology – network connectivity, security, data analytics, embedded networks, etc. – enables organizations to create new revenue opportunities and lower operational costs by managing their connected devices.

“One of the most significant challenges organizations face is justifying IoT initiatives and Cisco has been very forthright in showing how IoT generates positive business outcomes,” said John Madden, Practice Leader for IT Services, Ovum. “It is our pleasure to present this award to Cisco in appreciation of what they have done to move the IoT industry forward.”

Consumer IoT Award

Samsung is the winner of the Ovum Consumer IoT Award, which recognizes a company that has provided critical products, services or strategies aimed at the consumer IoT market. Samsung has committed to having every device it sells connected to the Internet: smartphones, tablets, wearables VR, televisions, home theatre, washers, dryers, refrigerators.

“It is safe to say that IoT is in Samsung’s DNA and that connectivity is top of mind in their product design,” said Ronan de Renesse, Practice Leader for Consumer Technology, Ovum. “With its broad product portfolio, Samsung is well positioned to provide consumers with a seamless customer experience when interacting with their connected devices.”

IoT in Industry Award

This award, which recognizes a company that has had an early and substantial impact within its industry vertical through IoT, goes to a partnership between Cloudera, with its machine learning and advanced analytics platform, and Cerner, which is a provider of healthcare information technology solutions. Leveraging Cloudera’s enterprise data hub, Cerner was able to achieve better outcomes, both patient-related and financial, by bringing data from diverse systems together.

“The use of IoT in healthcare has tremendous potential when it comes to impacting peoples’ lives,” said Nicole Engelbert, Director of Research & Analysis, Technology, Ovum. “Ovum applauds the teamwork between Cloudera and Cerner in improving patients’ lives.”
