No matter what you call it, the Internet of Things, the Programmable World, the Industrial Internet, we at Axeda call it the Machine Cloud. Intel Corporation predicts that over 15 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2015 and one third of these connected devices will be intelligent systems, and this explosive growth presents tremendous opportunity along with a host of new IT challenges.
The B2B subset of the Internet of Things - the corporate ecosystem of connected assets - we call the Internet of Corporate Things. It is an approach to the management of the physical products that a company delivers to its customers and the management of a company’s corporate assets including facilities and plants, operational equipment, vehicles and goods being delivered.
The benefits of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions are compelling and proven and the economics of delivering M2M solutions have never been better. The Axeda Machine Cloud provides the most advanced cloud-based software for integrating M2M data into existing mission-critical applications and processes and, more significantly, leveraging connected products and assets and an M2M partner eco-system to create new innovative applications that transform businesses.
