Oct. 28, 2016 – Earlier this month, Advantech announced at its Embedded IoT Partner Summit that it is collaborating with Intel, Microsoft, ARM and IBM to create Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that cover the span from device to Cloud services.
“Since 2012, in response to the growing demand surrounding smart cities and the IoT, Advantech has restructured to become a sector-led organization,” said KC Liu, Advantech CEO. “We have positioned the Advantech Embedded-IoT Group as a Sharing Platform Business Model to develop the four sharing platforms, which include WISE-PaaS/WISE-Point, the embedded OS, third party peripherals, and modules and design-in eco partners.”
According to a statement from Liu, the group will release IoTMart, a neutral e-commerce platform that will expand its “platform-sharing values and execute the go-to-market sector.”
“We are expecting the Embedded-IoT Group to become the global leader via the application of the sharing platform business model,” he said.
“Embedded-IoT will focus on four strategies to drive IoT business growth, including IoT-Enabled ARM-Based Platforms, Wireless Technologies, WISE-PaaS Services & Marketplace, and Edge Intelligence Servers (EIS), to serve domain-focused cloud service providers and system designers,” added Miller Chang, vice president of Advantech Embedded-IoT Group. “We strongly believe that this cooperation not only completes Advantech’s IoT offering, but also offers a leading advantage to Advantech’s customers in multiple industrial vertical markets.”
