oracom, Inc., a global provider of smart connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it has been named by Gartner, Inc., as a Niche Player in the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Managed IoT Connectivity Services.1 The report evaluates vendors based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. This is Soracom’s first appearance in the Magic Quadrant.
“Soracom was founded to democratize IoT technology and help teams of any size, from startup to enterprise, connect devices to the cloud on their own terms,” said Ken Tamagawa, CEO and Co-Founder of Soracom. “We believe that placement in the “Niche Players” quadrant validates our dedication to delivering industry-leading cloud integration and global IoT connectivity on a commitment-free, pay-per-use basis that makes it easy to launch and scale.”
According to Gartner, “Niche Players focus successfully on a constricted channel to market, a particular service, a particular set of industry markets, a limited number of regional markets or a combination of all of these strategies.”
Soracom maintains a singular focus on empowering technical innovators with reliable connectivity, robust network management capabilities, and a rapidly-expanding suite of advanced services for cloud integration, private networking, serverless data visualization, and secure, on-demand device and data access. Soracom recently announced a flat-rate IoT connectivity plan for North America that allows technical innovators developing connected products and services to reduce overall connectivity costs by 30-60% vs. other providers.
