Introduction

Ovum's Location Platform Index is a tool to assess and rank the major players in the location platform market. The index evaluates vendors on two main criteria: the completeness of their platform and its market reach.

Highlights

  • A location platform is a technology platform that integrates various location-based data sources and provides this data and related services to end users (consumers), licensees, and third-party developers.
  • By adopting a platform approach, providers of mapping data and location-based services can benefit by expanding their user base while also opening up new revenue streams through third-party services.

Features and Benefits

  • Learn about the leaders and the disruptive players challenging them.
  • Understand what makes successful vendors stand out from the crowd.
  • Identify key trends in the industry, including autonomous driving and the rise of mobility services and data marketplaces.
