Capgemini has been positioned as a Leader in the NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment Tool (NEAT) for Internet of Things (IoT) Services, in both the “Overall” and “Customer Engagement Focus” market segments. Capgemini was recognized for the breadth and depth of its IoT service offerings and portfolio. NelsonHall’s NEAT tool assessed 23 service providers this year through its evaluation criteria around the ability to deliver immediate benefit and whether they could meet future client requirements.
According to NelsonHall’s NEAT report, Capgemini is positioned as a “Leader” based on its following strengths:
- Breadth and depth of its IoT service offerings and portfolio
- Its several intellectual properties including eObject
- Ability to work with ISV partners and not being reliant on developing its own IoT platform
- Adjacent services including UX/DCX, cybersecurity, big data and analytics, and its engineering and R&D capabilities
“Capgemini’s IoT service strategy has been to work with the major Commercial-off-the-Shelf IoT platforms, develop complementary accelerators, and focus on applying algorithms to make sense of big data”, said Dominique Raviart, IT Services practice director, NelsonHall. “We welcome Capgemini’s approach to focus on data analytics, while helping client organizations succeed in their IoT platform implementation.”
Capgemini created its Digital Manufacturing service line in early 2016 to help manufacturing clients to realize turnaround time reduction and productivity gains through building smart connected plants and products, to enable them to adopt new business models for the digital age. IoT is a key part of this service portfolio.
The report highlighted Capgemini’s IoT value proposition for Digital Manufacturing through a full service offering from the device level through to analytics, and managed IoT services. This includes its digital transformation consulting capabilities, Applied Innovation Exchanges (AIEs) and its benchmarking capabilities.
