This year M2M Evolution is collocated with ITEXPO, which is one of the most popular world's shows dedicated to technology trade and communications. Experts of automotive sphere, transportation, cold chain, security, safety, health and other fields will gather to discuss strategies and perspectives of M2M growth and opportunities for new business launchings. Lots of technology companies, including device manufacturers, platform developers and wireless carriers will have the opportunity to present their decisions and products on the show.
On the 2nd of October one of the most peculiar features of the M2M Evolution Conference The Battle of the Platforms will take place. It is a half day pre-conference event open to all Austin attendees where ten M2M market leading companies will present their software solutions and emphasize the advantages and benefits they have to offer in front of the audience and a panel of judges that includes such renowned names as James Brehm (Compass), Alan Quayle (Alan Quayle Associates) and Carl Ford (Crossfire Media).
In the fast-growing M2M solution market, sometimes it is rather hard to evaluate the offers made by top M2M developers. All of them are different, but it's hard to estimate in which way. Battle of the Platforms is an excellent chance for service providers, independent M2M application developers as well as enterprise managers to learn about new decisions that can help them to manage and deliver M2M solutions. This event is also a good chance for the competitors to learn more about each other and see different solutions and implementation. Having seen everything the companies have to demonstrate, the attendees then can take an informed decision which solution meets their needs the best and which company to follow.
Gurtam is going to join the race and try to prevail over its competitors. Apart from our company, the Battle of the Platforms will feature Digi International, KORE Telematics, Eurotech, Locaid, Sensaware, OnAsset and VisTracks. More companies will be announced in the next few days on the official site of the conference. Awards will be presented in 4 categories and one of the four winners will be chosen for the Best Overall Platform:
• Best platform for enabling independent applications developer to work with M2M devices;
• Best platform for business intelligence (BI) controls solutions;
