Software AG (Frankfurt MDAX: SOW), the market leading software provider for business transformation, today announced that Gartner, a leading industry analyst firm, named it a visionary in the “Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms”* report for its Cumulocity IoT Platform.

This Magic Quadrant includes niche players and visionaries only, due to the youth of the market.

Software AG was placed furthest for completeness of vision.
