LONDON, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Ecosystem, Value Chain, Applications and Standards

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2293947/Machine-to-Machine-M2M-Ecosystem-Value-Chain-Applications-and-Standards.html

Overview:

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications are related applications is radically changing many industries utilities, healthcare, local government services, insurance, consumer electronics, automotive, asset management and retail.

With the introduction and growth of new Internet of Things (IoT) related solutions, M2M is expected to expand and accelerate deep within certain market segments with a profound impact on how organizations do business and relate to their customers. One of the more important keys to M2M is standardization, particularly in IoT where we see delays in expansion of devices and applications due to lack of standards for interoperability, privacy, security, and intermediation

This research evaluates the M2M Ecosystem, Value Chain and Platforms. It also assesses the functional building blocks of M2M with a view towards incremental benefits. The report includes recommendations for go-to market strategies, standards role/importance/issues, M2M and Internet of Things (IoT), business drivers, and market issues. The report also includes guidelines for an enterprise to choose a service provider along with recommendations to manage M2M development projects.

All purchases of Mind Commerce reports includes time with an expert analyst who will help you link key findings in the report to the business issues you're addressing. This needs to be used within three months of purchasing the report.


Target Audience:

Mobile network operators
M2M/IoT platform providers
Wireless device manufacturers
Wireless infrastructure providers
M2M and IoT application developers
Enterprises employing M2M/IoT solutions
