Altizon Wins Frost & Sullivan IoT Award

Altizon, a global industrial IoT (IIoT) platform company creating connected intelligence for enterprises, has announced it has won the Frost & Sullivan 2017 India IoT Energy Monitoring New Product Innovation Leadership Award. Altizon received the award for its technology innovation using its Datonis Industrial IoT (IIoT) platform to develop a real-time electricity monitoring solution that helps ensure quality of power generation and best practices.

A vast majority of rural areas around the world have inconsistent electric supplies, resulting in frequent interruptions, load shedding/blackouts, and voltage fluctuations that negatively impact daily life. Using its Datonis IIoT platform, Altizon worked closely with Prayas Energy Group, an India NGO that works on governance, regulation and electricity and energy sector policy, to build Altizon's platform enabled the Prayas team to rapidly develop its solution in less than 3.5 months, which now efficiently monitors the availability and quality of electricity across hundreds of villages and towns in India and in several other Asian and African countries.

Altizon's Datonis supports hundreds of global projects across the industrial landscape using sophisticated cloud computing, big data analytics and machine learning. Datonis enables industrial enterprise clients to ramp up and reap immediate benefits from IIoT including significant time and cost savings. The technology has been deployed in several smart city projects to monitor energy and water meters in India, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

"Projects like are a powerful example of how Altizon and our Datonis IIoT platform are helping companies and governments monitor the quality and consistency of their power generation and energy consumption as well as support their energy advocacy efforts," said Yogesh Kulkarni, COO, Altizon. "We are truly honored to receive this prestigious award as we continue to make new inroads in helping our customers quickly realize the benefits of IIoT."

The Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards is a global program that recognizes outstanding industry achievements by companies worldwide. The award recipients are selected through an extensive process including a deep dive research and analysis conducted by Frost & Sullivan industry experts, which is then presented to an independent panel of judges representing the top companies in India. This year's jury includes senior executives from renowned organizations like Mahindra & Mahindra, Ashok Leyland, Kotak India Bank, Morgan & Stanley & MENASA, the mobility practice of F&S.
