Accelerating the
Industrial Internet of Things
  • What is IoT ONE?

    IoT ONE is a research and advisory firm focused on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Our mission is to enable our clients to realize the opportunities and manage the threats that are created by the IIoT.

    We provide consulting services and an online knowledge center. Our consulting services help companies understand and act by providing research, innovation and implementation services. Our online knowledge center gives technology suppliers a platform to showcase their technologies and capabilities, and technology end users a convenient source of information to track the development of the IIoT ecosystem.



  • Who uses the IoT ONE Knowledge Database and how?

    The IoT ONE Knowledge Database is used by technology and service vendors and project end users from around the world. Vendors use IoT ONE to showcase their technology and project experience (create a free profile). End users rely on the platform to prioritize projects and identify partners. Researchers and enthusiasts also tap into our databases to expand their understanding of the Industrial IoT.  

  • How can hardware, software, and service suppliers list their company on IoT ONE?

    Listing your company on IoT ONE is simple, quick and free. Simply register an account with your business email and create a new supplier profile. You will be the administrator of the profile you have created. With administrator access, you can add and update case studies, hardware, and software at any time.

    If your company already has a profile and you would like to be an administrator of that profile, please reach out to us at

  • How do end users use IoT ONE?

    End users generally begin by researching case studies to gain an understanding of what is possible using new technologies. They then either assess the suppliers behind the case studies to determine or the hardware and software technologies that enable the case studies. After identifying case studies or technologies that appear to address their needs, end users are able to issue RFIs on the platform to begin the discussion of problem-solution fit.

  • What information does the IoT ONE Knowledge Database provide?

    The IoT ONE Knowledge Database maps the Industrial IoT ecosystem. Our databases host thousands of profiles covering: suppliers, case studies, hardware, software, use cases, organizations, events, and our IIoT Spotlight podcast. We use metadata to identify relationships between profiles, to assess market niches, and to track industry trends. The majority of our data is crowdsourced from IoT vendors and experts (register a free user account here).


    IoT ONE is free to use for both providers and end users - there are no constraints on access. Suppliers can add and update profiles at any time. And end users have complete access to the public databases.  

  • What is the geographic focus of IoT ONE?

    The Industrial Internet of Things is globally relevant, and we seek to reflect that in our databases and services. IoT ONE knowledge database receives visitors from more than 80 countries every month. In 2016, approximately 35% of our users were based in North America, 25% in Europe, 10% in India, and 10% in China, with the remaining 20% spread among about 80 countries.

    Our consulting services focus on clients in Germany and the DACH region, China, and Singapore. 

  • Which industries does the IoT ONE Knowledge Database focus on?

    The Industrial IoT addresses virtually every industry to some extent and we reflect that breadth in our knowledge database. However, adoption levels vary considerably by industry. Naturally, our Knowledge Database focuses on the industries that are the most active in IIoT - machinery, building, automotive, energy. We only cover IoT in industrial applications, excluding consumer applications such as smart home appliances, smart watches and other consumer wearables.
