Wiliot recognised as a Sample Vendor in Seven 2023 Gartner Hype Cycle Reports


Wiliot, the Internet of Things solutions provider, has been recognised as a Sample Vendor in seven 2023 Gartner Hype Cycle Reports.

2023 marks the first year that Wiliot, and its award-winning Visibility Platform, have been recognised in a Gartner Hype Cycle report.

The specific reports in which Wiliot has been named a Sample Vendor are: Hype Cycle for Wireless Technologies; Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategy; Hype Cycle for Smart City and Sustainability in China; Hype Cycle for Edge Computing; Hype Cycle for Public Safety and Law Enforcement; Hype Cycle for Life Science Manufacturing, Quality and Supply Chain; and Hype Cycle for Environmental Sustainability. 

In 2022, Wiliot was named a ‘Cool Vendor’ by Gartner in their report titled, “Cool Vendors in Indoor Location Technologies and Sensors” by Annette Zimmermann, Nick Jones, Bill Ray, and Tim Zimmerman.

“Gartner, Inc., a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to executives and their teams, recognizes the important role that Wiliot and the ambient IoT are playing in transforming a broad range of technologies, markets, and applications,” said CFO Roee Zeiler.

“Ambient IoT represents a transformative technology paradigm on par with artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and even the internet more broadly. It is changing the way the world operates and the way business is conducted. Transitioning to this new paradigm requires education and thoughtful analysis. We are pleased that Gartner is contributing to this with its recognition of Wiliot and our continued inclusion in their Hype Cycle and Cool Vendor reports.”

The Wiliot Visibility Platform connects the digital and physical worlds using its Cloud Platform and IoT Pixels, which are stamp-sized, low-cost compute devices that attach to any product, connecting it to the internet and embedding it with intelligence and awareness. Data streamed from these IoT Pixels are processed in the Wiliot Cloud, generating actionable insights that create more efficient, profitable, and sustainable supply chains.

Wiliot is currently working with many of the world’s largest companies across retail, logistics, apparel, CPG, and pharmaceuticals on a variety of ambient IoT projects.

Wiliot has been named a Hype Cycle Sample Vendor in the following technology categories:

  • Ambient IoT – in the Wireless Technologies report
  • Cold Chain as a Service – in the Life Science Manufacturing, Quality, and Supply Chain report
  • Food Safety and Traceability - in the Smart City and Sustainability in China report
  • IoT - in the Infrastructure Strategy report
  • IoT for Sustainability - in the Environmental Sustainability report
  • IoT - in the Edge Computing report
  • Indoor Location Intelligence - in the Public Safety and Law Enforcement report

Gartner’s Hype Cycle is a graphical depiction of a common pattern that arises with each new technology or other innovation. Each year, Gartner creates more than 90 Hype Cycle reports in various domains as a way for clients to track technology maturity and future potential. The five phases in the Hype Cycle are Technology Trigger, Peak of Inflated Expectations, Trough of Disillusionment, Slope of Enlightenment and Plateau of Productivity.

Wiliot will be providing access to a subset of these Hype Cycle reports on a rotating basis via their website, courtesy of its reprint licensing agreement with Gartner.
