MachNation has named Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform as a leading vendor in its 2019 IoT Application Enablement Scorecard – for the fifth year in a row!

MachNation, a pioneer of detailed independent technology assessments, said that Cumulocity IoT is “both faster and less complex” than its competitors in platform deployment and maintenance.

We are thrilled to receive this accolade, which highlights our commitment to keeping IoT deployment simple. In just a few clicks, you can connect a device and starting consuming live data. It supports self-service, no coding required. And you can integrate and build applications really fast.

The report identified the following key highlights of the Cumulocity IoT platform:

  • Strong application development and enablement features. With an effective vendor-provided web application development kit, customers are empowered to create their own AngularJS monitoring and operations interfaces that can be hosted and managed directly in the platform.
  • Excellent device management capabilities, including strong support for LWM2M. Device management capabilities, a distinct area of strength for the Cumulocity IoT platform, are both broad and deep. Typical features such as device onboarding/sunsetting, device maintenance, and remote diagnostics are all present.
  • Excellent platform management tools. Software AG provides a highly effective suite of on-platform interfaces to manage nearly all aspects of the AEP solution. Other platform features such as user and tenant administrator, event processing rules, audit trails, and multi-factor authentication settings are all logically and effectively exposed.

Our CTO Bernd Gross noted that IoT technology offerings have ballooned in recent years, making it even more of an honor that Cumulocity was selected as a leader. “It is in this environment that we are extremely proud that our continued leadership has been recognized by MachNation for the fifth consecutive year.”

With Cumulocity IoT, we make the adoption of IoT easy; no matter the size, market or where the customers are in their IoT journey. Cumulocity IoT is open, independent, agnostic, and ready to be used immediately. This rating as a leading vendor gives our customers the reassurance they want – that they have a strong partner in their path to success.
