Research and Markets: Strategic Alliances in the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Ecosystem

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6pq5bj/strategic) has announced the addition of the "Strategic Alliances in the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Ecosystem" report to their offering.

A typical machine-to-machine (M2M) solution consists of five or six stakeholders. Each stakeholder performs one or more dedicated tasks as part of a comprehensive solution. These tasks include connectivity, platform, software development, integration services, consultation, deployment, activation and often many more depending upon the specific industry and application.

M2M partnerships are formed for various purposes including reduction of complexity from the customer perspective and often to develop specific M2M applications which promise reduced time to market for enterprise clients.

Given the level of complexity, and the desire for companies to focus on their core competencies, a single company is often not in a position to provide integrated end-to-end solution by itself. Strategic alliances are therefore a critical aspect of the M2M ecosystem.

This report evaluates 43 strategic alliances that have been formed over the last two years within the M2M ecosystem. This research includes analysis of long term strategies of major telecom service providers and MVNO companies. This is must reading for any company already within the M2M ecosystem and/or any company evaluating the M2M value chain to determine potential partnerships, repositioning/renegotiation, mergers and acquisitions.

Target Audience:

Mobile network operators

Systems integration companies

Enterprise companies of all types

Investment and M&A companies of all types
