This ‘landscape’ poster by Matt Turck (and others) slots the logos of IoT companies into Applications, Platforms & Enablement, and Building Blocks, further subdividing them into their respective fields (hat tip for the Adafruit inclusion in Building Blocks->Hardware->Parts/Kits!). I will admit some (many!) of them I have never heard of before, – but it’s equally interesting to consider some of the companies associated with these sectors becoming increasingly common household names.

Just as for the Big Data world, the annual update to our Internet of Things Landscape (scroll below for the 2016 version) is a great opportunity to check in on the industry. In 2013, we were trying to make sense of the Internet of Things; in late 2014, it seemed that the IoT had reached escape velocity. In 2016, the IoT space continues to hold considerable promise, but equally, and unsurprisingly, there’s no shortage of obstacles – there is a long road ahead and this trend will unfold over many years, possibly decades.
