Livonia-based Thirdware Solution Inc., a leading provider of digital transformation solutions, announced a partnership with Telit, an Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine communications company in London, to enable businesses to rapidly bring new digital offerings to market and increase engagement.
IoT refers to the network of physical objects — such as connected appliance and smart home security systems — that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technology designed to allow communication between devices.
Telit’s deviceWISE IoT platform is an enterprise-grade industrial automation platform that connects complex, disparate production equipment from different suppliers with different protocols and interfaces the combined data to enterprise systems and applications without custom programming.
The platform offers a wide breadth of machine and sensors connectivity, edge logic, data visualization, IT/OT integration, database integration, IT systems integration, cloud integration, digital twin, device management, connectivity management, and more.
“Telit brings credibility and profound expertise in building and delivering a complete, data-centric IoT platform that allows customers to focus on building apps,” says Bhavesh Shah, CEO of Thirdware.
“This, combined with Thirdware’s 26 years of experience in successfully implementing business technology solutions globally, has the potential to deliver world class IoT solutions that can be a game changer for our customers. We are very excited about this relationship and the profound and positive impact it can deliver to our customers jointly.”
Thirdware and Telit partnered to assist large and small companies to accelerate IoT initiative and the projects speed to value. Thirdware also expands its global reach with the partnership.
“Telit and Thirdware have a significant presence in the automotive industry, which is going through a major shift due to the growth of electric, connected, and autonomous vehicles,” says Ricardo Buranello, head of IoT platforms at Telit. “We expect the automotive manufacturing process and shopfloor to change significantly to accommodate these shifts, resulting in increased automation and data requirements.”
Since 1995, Thirdware has worked with Fortune 500 companies in the design, implementation, and support of enterprise applications. Ford Motor Co. became a strategic investor in 2001, allowing the company to grow within the automotive industry.
The IT consultancy has experience in the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning, enterprise resource planning, enterprise performance management, and robotic process automation. The company has successfully delivered over 1500 projects in the automotive, health care, and financial services industries.
“Telit has been addressing the IoT needs of factories for over 20 years, providing customers with the visibility and data they need to drive informed decision making,” says Buranello. “We are excited to work with Thirdware; they bring proven consulting and implementation capabilities that will allow customers to benefit from Telit’s IoT offerings and speed time to value.”
