Rami Avidan, CEO Tele2 IoT, comments: "We believe that Gartner's inclusion of us in the quadrant is a proof point of us delivering on our IoT strategy with the vision to become the orchestrator of a smarter world. We also see this as a recognition of our unique offer in the IoT market".
When assessing Tele2's IoT services, Gartner looked at two key areas:
* Completeness of vision - market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation and geographic strategy
* Ability to execute - product or service offering, overall viability, sales execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution, customer experience and operations
Based on the evaluation, Gartner positioned Tele2 IoT the highest for Ability to Execute in the Niche Players quadrant.
