About the Industry 4.0/Internet of Things Vendor Benchmark 2016
The "I4.0/IoT Vendor Benchmark 2016" is based on the "Experton Market Insight" methodology developed by Experton Group AG. This validated and internationally acknowledged methodology serves as basis for the evaluation and positioning of the individual vendors. For each vendor, a detailed scoring based on key and additional secondary criteria is provided for each product category. These criteria are weighted, based on the respective product category, resulting in an assessment of the individual social offering’s attractiveness (“portfolio attractiveness”) and the strength of the individual vendor (“competitive strength”). The benchmarked vendors had to supply answers to the questionnaire by September 28, 2015.
