Zinnov assessed capabilities and customer references across 4 key categories and found Happiest Minds to have made significant progress over the past year.
Happiest Minds Technologies, a next generation digital transformation, infrastructure, security and product engineering services company announced that it has been recognized as a ‘Niche & Established’ player in Zinnov Zones 2017 IoT Technology Services. This was made possible due to the end-to-end expertise that Happiest Minds brings across assessment services, connected devices, intelligent platforms, analytics, automation and integrated business workflows.
Sashi Kumar, CEO and MD of Happiest Minds commented, “This reaffirms our decision to have IoT as a key element of our go-to market strategy and help our customers create rich connected experiences that change the way people live, work and communicate. It’s encouraging to see the progress we have made in a short time and we will continue to make investments on the ground to grow exponentially in our primary markets.”
With the intersection of IoT and the digital landscape, organizations are now able to create new ways of engaging the business and its customers. The opportunities are immense and Happiest Minds recently bolstered its already thriving IoT business by acquiring Cupola Technology – a specialized IoT services company with innovative solutions across the IoT lifecycle. This strategic acquisition is in line with Happiest Minds’ vision to expand upon its already thriving IoT business by bringing in complimentary frameworks, ready to use solutions and marquee customers.
“Over the last couple of years, we have gained considerable traction with IoT and have built an enviable array of customers across the globe. We aim to augment our capabilities as an ‘Established’ player and build scale in the coming months across three key segments that we have categorized as Smart Living, Smart Enterprise and Smart Industrial. With the acquisition of Cupola coupled with a strong focus on building a robust partner ecosystem across devices, platforms and analytics, we are now in pole position to help organizations create a smart, secure and connected IoT experience,” said Sandeep Agarwal, Head of the IoT COE at Happiest Minds Technologies.
Happiest Minds is also the only Indian IT company to be shortlisted for ‘Leadership in IoT’ at TechXlr8 2017 with the likes of Nokia, Orange and the DSP group. Some of the work that helped Happiest Minds secure its name amongst the leaders includes –
