It's Platform Versus Platform in a Steel Cage Match at M2M Evolution

By Rich Steeves January 14, 2013

There is no better way to prove that you’re the best than to fight it out on the battlefield. That’s how we decide who wins the Super Bowl and the World Series. Even Humphrey Bogart suggested that the best way to determine the Best Actor Oscar was to make everyone play Hamlet and then decide. Taking this idea of head-to-head competition to heart, Crossfire Media and TMC have put together an event at the M2M Evolution conference that could only be called “The Battle of the Platforms!”

The companies in question will compete in several categories: Platform for Service providers to support wholesale services, Platform for best BI Controls Solutions, Platform for Enterprise Deployment and Enabling Independent Applications Developer to work with M2M devices.

The Battle Royale will take place at 2 pm on January 29 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida. It will be part of the M2M Evolution Conference & Expo, which is collocated with ITEXPO Miami.

The companies participating in the Battle of the Platforms will represent a wide range of cutting edge M2M solutions. Axeda is a company that focuses on helping businesses share data among many devices, and just recently it unveiled a whole host of new Axeda-ready devices. Gurtam specializes in software for GPS tracking, fleet management and other M2M applications, and will be showing its Wialon GPS tracking software at M2M Evolution.

Another company that is participating is ILS Technology, which provides a cloud-based platform to connect IT systems to devices and machines. Also present will be Modus, a developer of wireless solutions and software, which has recently created some innovative solutions in the legal technology space.

Omnilink specializes in location-based services, and has worked closely with embedded M2M solutions enabler Sprint to provide asset-tracking capabilities. Another fleet tracking and telematics company that will participate in the event is Spireon, which works closely with Verizon to help maximize the output of each and every vehicle in a fleet.

The final two companies participating in the steel cage match are ThingWorx and Zoho. ThingWorx is a fairly new startup company with an innovative app development and data intelligence platform, while Zoho offers a wide range of cloud solutions to help improve business productivity.

These companies will all fight it out in the Battle of the Platforms. Who will win? Stay tuned to find out!
