I am honored to have joined Rigado as CEO a little over a month ago. I’ve spent that time getting to know our innovative customers, industry-leading partners and dedicated employees. As I’ve learned about all that we have accomplished together in the past year, I’ve been struck by how much IoT has evolved. Low-power wireless technologies like Bluetooth Low Energy and configurable software have really enabled the vision of the ‘Edge as a Service’. I’m proud to report that Rigado has become a true leader in the deployment of these services for Enterprise IoT.
We made a lot of progress as a company in 2019. On the product front, we launched our Edge Connect platform which allows for accelerated deployment of new IoT devices and cloud connectivity using our Rigado Edge and Service offerings. Edge Connect is the solution that has helped our customers quickly go from pilot to production without sacrificing scalability or security. A new sensor, cloud connector or use case can be deployed via a quick configuration and without writing any code. It’s truly transformative. As you can tell, we are excited about this new capability and what it means for commercial IoT enablement.
We’ve been busy with partner and customer momentum as well. This year we published IoT case studies together with customers such as Radius Networks, Onset and partner Klika-Tech. We announced a partnership with Kontakt.io, a leading solution provider for intelligent asset monitoring. Working closely with our partner Microsoft we certified our Cascade gateway and Edge-as-a-Service platform as one of their first plug-n-play devices with Azure IoT. We announced a partnership with Amazon Web Services and became one of the first suppliers to achieve the AWS IoT Retail Competency. All of this work culminates in powerful solutions for market-specific IoT opportunities.
As someone who has been in the networking and embedded space a long time I can appreciate that technology is only part of the answer. To truly solve large-scale problems across IoT cases it takes a collection of like-minded partners to deliver an integrated solution. We are grateful to have so many of those partners in our ecosystem today. If you’re interested in a solution for IoT markets such as connected retail, smart office and intelligent logistics we’ve got a great start for you here.
I’m looking forward to sharing more about Rigado’s progress and our vision for the future. I hope to hear from you about how we can work together in the coming year to make your IoT dream a reality!
