CIOTech Outlook >> Magazine >> March - 2016 issue

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to add billions of units and billions of dollars to the market for Semiconductors. It is estimated that more than 20 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020, with more than 40 percent of them being IoT devices. This will bring about the union between cutting-edge technology and the plethora of old-line industrial applications and consumer goods, and it will possibly lead to great opportunities in new markets for semiconductor companies. Having said so, it cannot be ignored that the Semiconductor industry has been going through an unprecedented period of consolidations due to rising research and development (R&D) costs and slowing overall growth. At the same time working with engineering service providers is critical for semiconductor product marketing managers to secure new design wins and build a portfolio of vertical industry-specific reference designs for the Internet of Things market. Failure to do so will erode their relevance to the IoT value chain. Along the same line of thought, businesses still battle with industry cycles to improve their Time to Market (TTM) challenges. Similarly, they weather the Global Distribution challenges while trying hard to optimize channel management. Factors like this have led businesses to look for vendors who have share not just ample experience in the Semiconductor domain but also showcase a repository of solutions that will help businesses advance in the domain. But Semiconductor domain has been flooded with vendors who furnish equally outstanding solutions and the real challenge lies in the fact that CIOs ought to bag in the cream of the crop if they have to stand apart from their peers.


CIOReview understands this predicament perfectly well and so brings to you a list of 20 Most Promising Semiconductor Software Solution Providers. Having being closely scrutinized by a distinct panel of judges including CEOs, CIOs, CXO, analysts and CIOReview editorial board, these companies ensure that their clients have the best solutions that will meet the company’s specific requirements while proving to be cost effective.
