Author: Louis Columbus
Abstract: This Forbes article, written by Louis Columbus, lists the top 25 IoT startups to watch in 2019 (based on McKinsey Global Institute’s Artificial Intelligence: The Next Digital Frontier?). The author begins by providing stats on the current IoT landscape. He notes that the most successful IoT startups “excel at orchestrating analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and real-time monitoring to deliver exceptional customer experiences” and that the top 25 IoT startups are “concentrating on how to make IoT a growth catalyst for enterprises.”
Columbus explains that this list of top 25 IoT startups was based on an analysis of their ability to attract new customers, current and projected revenue growth, patents’ current value and potential, and position in their chosen markets. InfluxData, creator of InfluxDB, was among the companies listed since its open source time series platform InfluxDB is purpose-built to analyze metrics and events (time series data) for DevOps and IoT applications. The article’s coverage also mentions that InfluxData enables developers to build monitoring, analytics and IoT applications at scale, delivering measurable business value quickly.
