Zinnov Recognizes Aricent for IoT Technology Services

It’s a great time to be a member of the Aricent (News - Alert) team, as the company has just been ranked among the top engineering and design companies worldwide in the Internet of Things (IoT) Technology Services market sector. According to Zinnov Zones 2016 – Internet of Things Technology Services report, Aricent earned a place in the Leadership Zone in five out of seven categories.

The Zinnov Zones 2016 – Internet of Things Technology Services study determines leaders by analyzing the Global IoT market and trends from the perspective of both spenders and service providers. Global service providers are then rated on their IoT Technology Services based on the Zinnov Zones. Impressively, Aricent was included in the leadership zone in the following categories: Advisory & Consulting, Product Development Engineering, Sensors and Devices Engineering, Network Engineering and Management, Software Platform Engineering and Management. As for the remaining two categories, Aricent was labeled as part of the execution zone.

Frank Kern (News - Alert), Aricent's Chief Executive Officer, showed his appreciation of the recognition by saying, “We are elated to receive this recognition from Zinnov…We help the world's leading companies solve their most important business and technology innovation challenges, from the customer to the chip. The recognition from Zinnov is a testament to the caliber of our services. Being in the leadership position for IoT Technology Services fuels our market leadership, and reflects our consistent focus on helping companies become durable in the digital era.”

This is not the first time Aricent has been recognized by Zinnov, though. They were also recognized as one of the top leaders in the semiconductor, telecommunication, and entertainment industries, according to the Zinnov Global Service Provider Rating for Product Engineering Services 2015 report and the Zinnov Global Service Provider Rating for Media & Entertainment report. 

Sidhant Rastogi, partner & practice head, Zinnov, provided some insight into why the company ranked so well by saying, “Aricent is an innovator and early adopter in building IoT solutions and providing end-to-end product engineering services to customers across industry verticals.”  He continued on to say, “We extend our heartiest congratulations to Aricent, and recognize the company as one of the leading players in IoT. Aricent has been at the forefront of bringing the best of offerings to the market and fostering innovation.”

It looks like Aricent is doing big things when it comes to the IoT. The company is continuing to grow, so we’ll have to wait and see what innovative new advances they put forth next.
