In its just released report “Zinnov Zones 2016 for IoT Technology services,” Zinnov Management Consulting positions Persistent Systems (BSE & NSE: PERSISTENT) in the leadership zones for both ‘Software Platform Engineering & Management’ and ‘Engineering Analytics & Decision Sciences’. Being positioned in the Leadership Zone validates the strategy and capabilities of Persistent Systems for IoT Technology Services.

This March Persistent announced a significant alliance with IBM to improve and transform engineering processes, integrating new specialized consulting services via the IBM Watson Internet of Things Platform to help engineers integrate massive amount of data from the IoT into product development.

IoT-generated data is growing twice as fast as social and computer-generated data. It is extremely varied, noisy, time-sensitive and often confidential. The complexity only grows as billions of devices interact in the world and tests the limits of programmable computing. The company’s leadership in ‘Software Platform Engineering & Management’ and ‘Engineering Analytics & Decision Sciences for IoT reflects the vision and deep expertise in areas such as Cognitive IoT, Machine Learning, DevOps, and Continuous Engineering.

This comprehensive analysis from Zinnov assesses companies based on IoT competency (IoT service capabilities, innovation and specialization including human capital, financials, ecosystem linkages, infrastructure, and Business Sustainability) and Scalability (Scale, Services Diversity, Vertical Diversity).
