A typical machine-to-machine (M2M) solution consists of five or six stakeholders. Each
stakeholder performs one or more dedicated tasks as part of a comprehensive solution.
These tasks include connectivity, platform, software development, integration services,
consultation, deployment, activation and often many more depending upon the specific
industry and application.

M2M partnerships [http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/z45zgr/strategic ] are
formed for various purposes including reduction of complexity from the customer
perspective and often to develop specific M2M applications which promise reduced time to
market for enterprise clients.

Given the level of complexity, and the desire for companies to focus on their core
competencies, a single company is often not in a position to provide integrated end-to-end
solution by itself. Strategic alliances are therefore a critical aspect of the M2M

This report evaluates 43 strategic alliances that have been formed over the last two
years within the M2M ecosystem. This research includes analysis of long term strategies of
major telecom service providers and MVNO companies. This is must reading for any company
already within the M2M ecosystem and/or any company evaluating the M2M value chain to
determine potential partnerships, repositioning/renegotiation, mergers and acquisitions.
