Isabel Chapman, Principal analyst with Machina Research said, “There is increasing attention being paid to the need for partner ecosystems due to the complexity of IoT projects, the lack of any vendor offering a true end to end solution, as well as the lack of standards. Systems Integrators are quickly becoming the necessary partner for any type of IoT project, both as part of the project team and, more often, as project lead.”

Merlin CSI has leveraged Asavie PassBridge™ for enterprise IoT projects, and has seen how it provides a level of manageability both initially and over long installed life cycles, which is very impressive. By collaborating with Asavie, we can demonstrate to companies the potential of the IoT to generate increased cost efficiencies in their existing business processes, as well as driving new revenues and business channels.”
