Eseye, a leading global player in managed cellular internet connectivity for M2M Internet of Things (IoT) devices, has today announced its inclusion in the October 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed M2M Services, Worldwide, as a “Niche Player”. The Magic Quadrant is a highly regarded independent assessment of businesses operating in specific markets, by analysts from one of the world’s leading information technology research and advisory companies.

As one of 17 companies recognised globally, Eseye believes its inclusion in the Magic Quadrant is because of its strong belief in its customers’ visionary products and services, which it supports with a continuous innovation strategy in end-to-end IoT provisioning, security and integration.

This Gartner insight is particularly important for managed M2M services, which is an integral element of many IoT solutions. Gartner itself predicts the global IoT network will hit 20 billion connected devices by 2020. Meanwhile the industry has seen 30 per cent growth over the past 12 months alone.

Julian Hardy, CEO of Eseye, says, “We are absolutely delighted to be included in this year’s Magic Quadrant. It caps off what has been a phenomenal year for Eseye as a business. We have continued to grow globally, securely connecting devices across the world but at the same time keeping our customers satisfied. We feel recognition from Gartner is a testament to everyone who works at and with Eseye.”

“Eseye is dedicated to connecting smart devices the world over, and with the announcement that we’ve passed our one-millionth active device, Eseye continues to go from strength to strength.”

The assessment criteria for the ability to execute included evaluating the product or service, overall viability, sales execution and pricing, market responsiveness and record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations. Criteria for completeness of vision included market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical and industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy.
