The Gartner report recognizes innovative solutions for device and information management, analytics, security, and integration for industrial IoT platform consolidation.

IoT orchestration platform Waylay was named a “cool vendor” in the 2017 report “Cool Vendors in Digitalization Through Industrie 4.0” published by Gartner, Inc – a leading global IT research and advisory firm. The report nominates Waylay amongst the four vendors that CIOs driving the industrial IoT vision forward should be considering to accelerate digitalisation of their business models.

The challenge: IoT integration

The potential of significantly improving operational efficiency via remote asset monitoring in verticals as diverse as energy metering, waste management, building management and logistics pushes the demand for the adoption of industrial IoT platforms in a broad range of companies. In this context, integration across devices, IT systems and processes is not only a business-driven requirement in Industry 4.0 but a crucial core competency sought after when analysing the value of an industrial IoT solution offering. One of the biggest challenges companies are facing when looking at deploying IoT solutions is lack of interoperability and integration complexity. And this is where Waylay comes in.

Why is Waylay cool?

As companies are rolling out Internet-of-Things applications, they discover that integration with existing IT systems, mobile front-ends and business processes is a critical element to valorize their investments. Waylay’s orchestration platform solves this problem by providing scalable and reliable interoperability and integration across multi-vendor IoT solutions and enterprise IT systems. This way it empowers companies to build advanced alerting, automations and a wide array of new applications across various vertical market segments.

We are honoured to have Gartner see the value in Waylay’s unique offering for industrial IoT, it is a recognition that comes to reinforce our strong positioning at the intersection of IoT, the API economy and automation.” Piet Vandaele, Waylay CEO
