There are a lot of companies proclaiming to be leaders in the IoT space but PTC and Thingworx are definitely in the top 10 most influential globally. Since my days in M2M and Telematics with Trimble I have been keeping watch on IoT developments. The recent pretenders in the consulting space are trying to muscle in on what will be a very large market in the next 5-10 years.
