KORE and ILS Technology used this week’s CTIA Wireless event in New Orleans to announce a solutions tie-up. By Ian Scales.
KORE's PRiSMPro connected device platform and the ILS Technology deviceWISE M2M application platform are to be integrated into a single offering under the agreement.
The companies claim the resulting solution will provide an M2M technology one-stop-shop so that organizations can access, view, and analyze M2M data on existing enterprise IT systems without being tied down in tedious integration between device and application platforms.
The move is a sign that the industry is moving away form its tactical, operational focus on M2M towards something more flexible, real-time and strategic, according to Robin Duke-Woolley, founder and CEO of Beecham Research, and quoted in the alliance announcement press release.
“Our most recent research of M2M Service Enablement Services (SES) predicts the need for this type of partnership. Such moves are set to drive the M2M market forward, gaining new value from M2M deployments by speeding up new service revenues, improving operational efficiencies, enhancing customer service, and driving cost savings in realtime. KORE and ILS Technology are both leading players in this part of the market with entirely complementary offerings and together will make a formidable partnership.”
