Leading the charge in building and connecting distributed devices involves in-depth collaboration with customers, partners, and integrators to deliver the goods and services society needs in the most efficient and cost-effective means possible. Over more than 25 years, Eurotech has built a great track record doing exactly this.
As evidenced in the marketplace, very few IoT solution providers have significant experience with real IT/OT convergence or in delivering a flexible and secure end-to-end architecture that enables successful and cost-effective IIoT deployments with real results. That’s because most IoT solution providers approach the market from an IT perspective due to having had limited experience with embedded or Edge computing. Even fewer of these providers have experience in developing both hardware and software for IoT and Cloud deployment.
Eurotech has a unique advantage in that they have decades of experience and technological depth when it comes to working with and integrating embedded/OT and IT platforms. Add to this their expertise around both hardware and software development for enabling Edge-to-Cloud data management, and it makes Eurotech a superior resource for enterprises looking to benefit from digital transformation and IT/OT convergence.
Eurotech’s Everyware IoT Edge-to-Cloud solutions are an important part of many applications that are woven into the fabric of everyday life. Whether helping organizations fine-tune industrial processes, improving efficiencies of a bus, train and subway systems, optimizing crop and food production, making autonomous vehicles safer, or creating a better future with smart energy solutions, Eurotech IoT solutions have permeated the lives of everyday people without their conscious awareness. This is pervasive computing and real-world IoT at work.
Building upon Dr. Siagri’s vision and Eurotech’s decades of experience, the company has created a unique Edge-to-Cloud value proposition that includes hardware, software, and services. Everyware IoT is an open Edge-to-Cloud platform that accelerates and simplifies IoT adoption in the enterprise. It consists of three modular components:
Today, Eurotech’s embedded hardware technologies and the Everyware IoT Edge-to-Cloud platform are key to successful digital transformation and IT/OT convergence of many of the world’s most progressive and prestigious organizations.
A commitment to Open Source software has been an important part of the Eurotech journey. In 2012, the company donated the original code base for the Eclipse Kura and Eclipse Kapua projects to the Eclipse Foundation Open Source Community. In connection with this contribution, Eurotech (together with IBM and Sierra Wireless) also founded the Eclipse IoT working group. These Eclipse IoT projects now form the basis of Eurotech’s commercially supported Everyware IoT Edge-to-Cloud software stack.
Eurotech (together with IBM) was also the original developer of the MQTT protocol, which is now an OASIS and ISO standard that has been adopted by all major IoT cloud service providers. MQTT was specifically designed for efficient, reliable and secure communication between the Edge and the Cloud.
Eurotech’s significant contributions to real-world IoT have been recognized repeatedly by industry publications and analysts. Recent accolades include being named a 2019 leader in the SPARK Matrix Analysis of IIoT Platforms by Quadrant Knowledge Solutions; 2019 European Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership Award for Rail Systems by Frost & Sullivan; an IoT Edge Environment Market Leader by Crisp Research; and Best in Show at the 2019 Internet of Things World. The company was also named to Gartner Research’s 2019 IIoT Magic Quadrant.
These and many other awards and milestones underscore the Eurotech commitment to excellence. Significant IoT-related awards and recognitions from previous years include:
Beyond providing an industry-leading set of Edge-to-Cloud solutions and capabilities, Eurotech also understands the importance of IoT and the Cloud as an ecosystem. Based on this philosophy, the company has partnered with industry leaders like IBM, Intel, VMware, Microsoft, Oracle, AWS, Cloudera and Red Hat to facilitate customers’ digital transformation objectives.
Eurotech’s Everyware IoT Edge-to-Cloud platform is designed to bridge the gap between OT and IT. The company considers IT/OT convergence as critical to the advancement and growth of the Internet of Things and continues to position its offerings accordingly. The company intends to “own the edge” by continuing to build upon Dr. Siagri’s pervasive computing vision of making Everyware IoT the Edge-to-Cloud standard. The company also plans to expand its Cloud and IoT ecosystem strategic partnerships in order to accelerate broad-scale adoption of Industrial IoT solutions. With its depth of knowledge, experience, and innovative thinking, Eurotech is well-positioned to benefit from the increasing trend towards digital transformation, IT/OT convergence, and the emergence of Edge computing that comprise the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
