Each year, Aragon Research selects Hot Vendors across multiple markets that are doing something truly new or different. They may have new technology that expands capabilities, a new strategy that opens up markets, or just a new way of doing business that makes them worth evaluating.
Part V of our Hot Vendors Special Report for 2016 includes Hot Vendors in Social Collaboration and Work and IoT.
There are many ways to share, manage, and collaborate around content, and the need to easily share information between people and on mobile devices is now an imperative. In the digital experience, ease of use trumps everything. This Research Note profiles four new Hot Vendors who are helping enterprises get work done by integrating multiple workplace tools into one offering.
In 2016, besides Machine Learning, Internet of Things is the fastest growing category with the largest number of new entrants. These new entrants are not just from start-ups: many well-established firms are making a pivot to focus on IoT.
