Location platform receives accolade for second year running

September 8th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

In 2018, Here Technologies took the top spot as highest-ranking vendor in the location platform market, toppling Google in the Ovum Location Platform Index. The data and location platform has done so again in the firm’s 2019 index. The company has made innovative and collaborative developments from growing its global team to expanding its products and reach. It has invested €25-million to launch the Advanced Research in Artificial Intelligence Institute (IARAI). The IARAI will be the world’s first global machine-learning research institute to use industrial-scale geolocation data. The Here Navigation on Demand solution was also brought to life, which is designed to help automotive OEMs build customisable in-vehicle user interfaces. The company also launched its Advertising Data Services, upgrading its previous solution to provide access to a larger dataset and more precise audience segmentation. Having transitioned from the 2018 beta, Here XYZ has enabled developers and map makers to create advanced maps and location-aware applications from location data. The studio helps users of all skill sets uncover insights, allowing data to tell a story and speak to new audiences.
