Vendors selected for the “Cool Vendor” report are innovative, impactful and intriguing
Foxboro, MA (May 4, 2011) – Axeda Corporation today announced it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) report by Gartner, Inc. Axeda is the leading cloud platform provider for M2M (machine-to-machine) application development, powering solutions for remote service, fleet management, smart grid, usage-based insurance, asset tracking, and more.
According to the Gartner report, a company should consider using a CSB if it needs to consume cloud-based business functionality and data, but lack the technology, skills or desire to do it in-house.
“We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner important recognition of the valuable solutions we deliver to the M2M market,” said Axeda CEO, Jack Sweeney. “By providing a powerful development platform and hosting the complex infrastructure required to run enterprise-scale M2M implementations, Axeda enables faster time to market with minimal infrastructure costs.”
A decade of M2M innovations has made Axeda’s award-winning technology the choice for more than 150 major organizations such as Abbott Diagnostics, Agilent Technologies, Diebold, and EMC. The Axeda Platform is uniquely qualified to handle the complex requirements for successful M2M solutions, such as managing multiple types of connections and assets, processing massive amounts of unstructured data, and providing enterprise grade scalability and security.
With these capabilities, enterprises, systems integrators, solution architects and developers can focus on solution development and integration instead of the underlying infrastructure – providing a platform on which to rapidly build and deploy M2M solutions while shortening time-to-market.
