As I write this blog and try to get my arms around what IoT is I thought a visual landscape would be a great idea and started work on it. As it turns out smarter and swifter minds than mine had already created a beautiful version (Matt Turck @mattturck and Sutian Dong @sutiandong of Firstmark Capital). Its a jpg and its below (if its copyrighted I will gladly put in a link). Its very comprehensive and just scanning it you would have to be an IoT savant to not find a couple of companies you don't know. Perhaps its my chiphead bias but I found very few semiconductor and sensor companies on the list but its still a fantastic effort and maybe one that can be open sourced so #IoT watchers can add to it. Last week I posted my IoT investment index in this blog and there are many semiconductor and hardware companies on the list because I strongly believe they will capture the bulk of the value in IoT.
My IoT index is only a week old and off 1.64% so far, but last week was rough for the market in general.
Here is Matt and Sutian's landscape (click to enlarge):
