– According to the report “Leaders believe in the promise of the IoT and they invest in that future, that includes a continuum of value from edge devices to IoT platforms and related analytics. Leaders perform skillfully and often exceed expectations. Leaders have a clear vision of the market’s direction and develop competencies to maintain their leadership. They shape the market, rather than follow it.”
