eMeter, A Siemens Business Moves to a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Meter Data Management Products

eMeter, A Siemens Business today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders" quadrant of its recently published Magic Quadrant for Meter Data Management Products 2013.

In the Magic Quadrant, Gartner, a leading worldwide IT research and advisory firm, chooses its “Leaders” rankings based on a vendor’s ability to pair advanced technology with broad offerings, rich functionality. Vendors must also have the capability to configure their solution to different needs, including solution offering on premises and in the cloud. In the Gartner Magic Quadrant, twelve companies are assessed on "Ability to Execute", covering aspects such as products and services, overall viability, market responsiveness and track record, marketing execution, and customer experience along with "Completeness of Vision".

"We've had an opportunity to work with Siemens in the eMeter solutions one on one to improve our analytics and outage capabilities. Our work with them has allowed us to continue to improve what we're doing at CenterPoint Energy and to share our learnings with other utilities across the globe," said Gary Hayes, CIO & Vice President Information Technology at CenterPoint Energy.

eMeter moves into the “Leaders” quadrant after being named to the “Visionaries” quadrant in last year’s report.

“As eMeter executes on a cohesive IT/OT vision within Siemens Smart Grid, our customers continue expand their adoption of our ever increasing application suite such as Equipment Load Management, and Grid Data vault applications, and our Analytics Foundation. Equally exciting is the realization of eMeter EnergiIP 8.0 as a development platform whereby we are working with many clients such as Centerpoint and others on new products that will be developed by our clients, our partners, and ourselves. We are delighted to be recognized by Gartner as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Meter Data Management Products; and look forward to expanding this into other leadership areas.”

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
