HERE ranked #1 location platform, 2021
News|2 September 2021
OMDIA has ranked HERE the number one location platform ahead of Google for the sixth consecutive time in its 2021 annual report ranking location platforms.
HERE has consistently taken the top spot in the OMDIA Location Platform Index since 2018. This year, the powerful capabilities in HERE mapping and the strongest privacy credentials for consumer data helped HERE to maintain its number one position, now with a wider gap between Google, its next competitor in the ranking.
HERE’s growing developer base was also highlighted by the analysts as a key factor in its high score.
OMDIA analysts assess major platform vendors in the location space. Their main criteria are market reach and completeness of platform, which includes the platform’s core data and mapping functions, along with its AI capabilities and the services it offers and supports.
The report found that the highest-ranked platforms successfully pivoted since COVID-19 struck, into areas including urban mobility and delivery use cases. Critical for success in today’s world are services and tools related to electric vehicles and public transportation, both of which HERE has developed significantly in the past year.
