TORONTO, Ontario (June 10, 2013) – Architech, a strategy consultancy, design and software development firm based in Toronto, and Massachusetts-based Axeda Corporation, the leading provider of cloud-based service and software for managing connected products and delivering machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, today announced the availability of customer applications that brings together their complementary engineering expertise and Machine Cloud to create new M2M solutions integrated with existing business systems.
M2M – sometimes called the “Internet of Things” – refers to the technologies that allow wireless and wired devices and systems to communicate with other devices and systems.
“We know that clients want intelligent solutions. Through this alliance, Architech can now help clients connect their people, assets and systems through the Axeda Machine Cloud®,” says David Suydam, President, Architech. “The potential is way beyond just connecting consumer products or machines. The promise of M2M is in rapidly creating new intelligent solutions for nearly every industry – a shift towards tailored and integrated solutions for what end users want to do with their devices and data.”
There are currently around 130 million M2M devices worldwide. By 2017, that figure is estimated to balloon to half a billion. And according to the industry research firm MarketsandMarkets, the M2M industry is going to quadruple in the next four years, with estimated revenue at $85 billion by 2017.
“Architech expands our partner ecosystem and the need for rapid integration of Big Machine Data with business systems,” says Keith Bartlett, Vice President for business development at Axeda. “By integrating these systems customers will experience innovation through connectivity, resulting in exceptional business insights, improved processes, and rapid ROI.”
