Key findings highlighted in the research were unique selling proposition, the strategic marketing approach towards partnerships, and the quality of Eurotech’s product portfolio
Amaro (Italy), September 16th, 2020 – Eurotech, a leading provider of rugged and industrial embedded boards and systems, Edge computing platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) enablement solutions, was again recognized by PAC RADAR (teknowlogy Group) as one of the “Best in Class” providers of “IoT platforms based on open source”.
This strong positioning comes from Eurotech's commitment to be active part of an IoT partner ecosystem and from the company's expertise in many vertical markets, and the quality of Eurotech’s product portfolio as confirmed by customer references. The analysts concluded in the report: “Eurotech is a uniquely positioned company in the market, able to offer IoT and edge computing building blocks, from very compact High Performance Embedded Computers (HPECs) to edge servers and IoT gateways, in combination with integrated IoT software framework for edge and cloud computing, fully based on open source".
Eurotech has nearly 30 years of experience in delivering hardware, software and services to win the challenges of next-gen applications in many vertical markets. This expertise, along with strong relationships built with many customers, system integrators and ecosystem partners such as IBM, Red Hat, VMware, AWS and Microsoft, allows the company to develop trusted IIoT edge components to enable the digital transformation of enterprises of any size with an end-to-end security approach.
On top of this, Eurotech is a significant contributor and committed founding member of a strong open source ecosystem, centered around the Eclipse IoT Working group. Eurotech is original contributor of open source projects like Eclipse Kura – an IoT edge middleware for IoT gateways, edge servers, and other smart devices – and Eclipse Kapua – an IoT platform providing device management capabilities and data integration with Cloud and IT applications.
“We are strongly committed to enterprise-ready open source software as a solid foundation for successful IoT and digital transformation implementations. It allows us to offer our customers and system integration partners a simple and fast way to develop and deploy IoT solutions, while minimizing risks and avoiding vendor lock-in” states Robert Andres, Eurotech CSO. “This commitment towards open source-based components, together with our excellent track record in the world of operational technologies, ensures solutions geared towards lowest total cost of ownership with a focus on manageability and security of end-to-end IoT applications”.
