Year Founded: 1976
Revenue: $1.2 billion (2014)
NASDAQ: NATI
By 2020, more than 50 billion devices will be digitally connected, representing $19 trillion in business opportunity. From the "smart edge", where NI hardware performs local control and data acquisition, to entire networks of intelligent "system of systems," watch the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) take shape. NI provides a single, integrated platform to help enterprises make smarter business decisions using NI software and end-to-end analytics.

NI provides technology to transform vast amounts of Big Analog Data gathered by sensors into actionable business insights using real time analysis. NI also offers a suite of software tools to collect, analyze, report, and act on Big Analog Data.

IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates a vendor's relative focus on hardware, software and services.
Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT hardware consultancies provide services such as solution specification, product design, connectivity setup, and partner identification.
Examples of business consulting services include go-to-market design and execution, business model development, channel development, and corporate M&A.
