April 1, 2016
German IoT provider Relayr has strengthened its IoT ecosystem by forming alliances with Amazon Web Services, BornGreen Technologies, C3-IoT, Dell, Devolo, Eseye, Ernst & Young, ESGI, Fast Lane, Intel, I-Ssockets, L&T Infotech, LoRa Alliance, Mawy, Neokami, NuLeds, SparkCognition, Senet, Sigfox, Teevr Data and Wirepas.
These add to existing partnerships with Accenture, ARM, AT Kearney, BearingPoint, Bosch, Cisco, Conrad, Deloitte Digital, NXP Semiconductor, Local Motors, Seeed studios and Your SL.
"Sigfox’s IoT wireless network and connectivity management backend, coupled with industry leading enterprise IoT middleware from Relayr, will enable customers to create valuable IoT solutions," said Aurelius Wosylus, director of sales for Sigfox in Germany. “Sigfox has already deployed easy to use and simple low-powered wide area communications to address their customers’ IoT connectivity needs. With Relayr we can make IoT for business a reality for organisations in a matter of weeks.”
Relayr’s Powered Partners is a global programme built to join forces with Relayr’s protocol agnostic any-to-any IoT enterprise middleware for industrial customers. The aim is to help enable digitisation and industrial IoT.
“The strengthening of Relayr’s partner programme is a fundamental milestone on our journey towards becoming the centre of gravity for the internet of things,” said Josef Brunner, Relayr CEO. “I am tremendously pleased and proud to work with such a group of well-respected high-profile partners and look forward to jointly enabling success for our industrial companies all over the world.”
The ecosystem connects middleware with partners to help enterprises with a portfolio of industrial IoT products, services, technologies and expertise. This will help enable joint customers develop, procure and implement the IoT they need to succeed in their businesses.
"The Relayr tech stack – from their cloud platform and data services down to the connected devices – enables us to take our customers from first prototype to roll-out in a few months," Frank Riemensperger, senior managing director at Accenture.
This alliance is designed to connect IoT technology, independent software vendors, consulting and system integration, and training partners with IoT middleware that has been in the market for close to four years. This ecosystem will enable companies and organisations of all sizes to develop their own IoT services, from prototype to roll-out, within a matter of weeks.
"Relayr has created a cloud platform that enables innovation to be built on top of it,” said Nick Earle, SVP for worldwide cloud sales at Cisco. “All of the application developers that create new applications through Relayr will connect the world of IoT.”
Thorsten Müller, CEO for Bosch Connected Devices, added: “IoT projects require an agile approach and a fast transition from prototyping to series production. We are pleased to announce our partnership with Relayr, a dynamic company accelerating IoT projects at an early stage. Our XDK cross domain development kit is the ideally suited all-in-one sensor platform to move easily from a proof-of-concept to series production.”
Founded in April 2013 in Berlin, Relayr’s cloud platform, consulting services and hardware have quickly launched the company from start-up to global IoT player.
“Relayr Powered Partners programme is aimed to drive unprecedented growth jointly with forward-thinking companies in industrial IoT,” said Guneet Bedi, vice president of business development at Relayr. “At the same time, this programme will help train thousands of developers, implementers and consultants to develop innovative digitisation solutions.”
