gtm-innovation-awardIrvine, CA -- (March 27, 2013) This analysis of the GTM Innovation Awards is from GTM Research's latest report, The Networked Grid 150: The End-to-End Smart Grid Vendor Ecosystem Report and Rankings 2013. For more information on the report, click here.

At GTM Research, we track hundreds of companies across the smart grid landscape, paying particular attention to smart grid product portfolios, market positioning and the likelihood of growth and sustainability for companies. In 2013, having ranked top vendors according to our methodology, we also pay special tribute to some products and services that we believe are leading the market.

As smart grid technologies and solutions become more sophisticated, vendors are increasingly competing on innovation. Furthermore, there is increasing demand from utilities and customers for products that provide tangible ROIs, require minimal customization efforts and can easily be integrated into core operations. Products and services that receive the GTM Innovation Award fit the bill in all of these categories and provide a valuable piece of infrastructure or service to utilities on their journey to creating a smarter grid.

We awarded one product innovation award to the major market segments in the GTM Smart Grid taxonomy; communications, applications, consulting, security and soft grid. All of these solutions are seen as best-in-class from a product roadmap, integration and performance perspective.

Here are the eleven products that were awarded GTM Innovation Awards across the energy value chain:

As cyber-attacks increase in complexity and number, maintaining a sophisticated private intelligence cache of tools, tactics and procedures on all major global threat groups will be critical for utilities. Cylance has assembled an expert team and provides responders with access to extensive, unpublished threat intelligence. The key to the product is Cylance's "Presponse" security, where a response is devised that will not only detect a compromise inside an organization, but will also determine its attack vector and source, and predict the most likely path of attack for the future.
