Ovum's 1H18 Location Platform Index is a tool that assesses and ranks the major vendors in the location platform market, with particular reference to the mapping and navigation space. The index evaluates vendors on two main criteria: the completeness of their platform and their platform's market reach.
It considers the core capabilities of a location platform along with the information that the platform opens to developers and the wider location community. The index provides an overview of the market and assesses the strengths and weaknesses of each player. It also highlights the key trends in the mapping space that vendors must keep up with if they want to stay ahead of the game.
