IoT.nxt concludes partnership with AMIS as Dutch presence grows
Dutch company AMIS, part of the Conclusion ecosystem, announced a strategic partnership with South African IOT innovator, IoT.nxt, to act on the rising demand for Internet of things (IOT) applications. The combination of AMIS's knowledge of IOT and IoT.nxt's technology-agnostic solution will result in new business models and services supporting companies' digitisation strategies.
This is a further agreement entered into in The Netherlands, following the partnership with listed Dutch company ICT Group, concluded at the end of February this year.
The IoT.nxt platform is capable of connecting a wide range of sensors and devices, irrespective of their protocols, allowing quick development of new solutions that can be retrofitted onto existing technology. The solution supports fast time to market, resulting in a very beneficial return on investment (ROI), making it extremely effective and cost efficient. "This allows us to focus on generating business value for our customers. The solution is specifically suitable for industrial IOT solutions," says Robbrecht van Amerongen, Business Development Manager at AMIS.
Joe Bester, Chief Marketing Officer at IoT.nxt, says: "IoT.nxt and AMIS reinforce each other in the field of business solutions for the Internet of things. With our platform, we are able to support AMIS's competencies ranging from design thinking, architecture development to technical and business operations in a way that enables them and their clients to rapidly move toward value with digitisation."
IoT.nxt offers a hardware and software solution for edge computing that bridges the gap between the industry sensors and the data processing back-end. It connects a company's latest digital devices, such as sensors or legacy analogue devices for monitoring the quality of a production process, the condition of an engine or the frequency of usage of equipment, to a wide range of different cloud and on-premises solutions. This makes it possible to leverage the power of real-time sensor data to cloud systems, machine learning, business intelligence and IOT-driven business rules.
Van Amerongen added this partnership will enable AMIS to accelerate its IOT development capability and handle operations of IOT solutions more effectively. "We can focus on business value for our customers and inspire our customers with industry-standard IOT solutions, thus helping them in their digital transformation process. The last few years we have seen an expanding number of IOT platform solutions. We help our customers select a mature, usable and cost-effective platform supporting their primary process. This way we provide high quality solutions with a good ROI."
