There is increasing attention being paid to the need for partner ecosystems due to the complexity of IoT projects, the lack of any vendor offering a true end to end solution, as well as the lack of standards. Systems Integrators are quickly becoming the necessary partner for any type of IoT project, both as part of the project team and, more often, as project lead.

This Research Note looks at the historical context for the rise of the SI in the IoT space as well as the variables at play specific to IoT, that result in the SI’s prominence in IoT engagements.
