LogMeIn Inc. has teamed up with Texas Instruments (TI) to help businesses accelerate commercial Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives. As part of the collaboration, LogMeIn has joined TI's new IoT cloud ecosystem, a group of third-party cloud service providers selected to help manufacturers using TI products develop new connected offerings. TI has also joined the LogMeIn Xively Partner Network, and the companies are integrating TI's SimpleLink Wi-Fi solutions with LogMeIn's Xively IoT platform.
"We believe the IoT's real value lies in empowering businesses to leverage new-found, IoT-enabled insights about connected customers and processes, and reinvent how they develop products, and market, sell to and service customers. We're delighted to join TI in providing end-to-end IoT solutions that help turn their customers' IoT visions into reality," says Mario Finocchiaro, director of Xively business development at LogMeIn.
Built on LogMeIn's Gravity cloud infrastructure, Xively is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) designed to help companies accelerate IoT initiatives. Featuring an efficient data communications backbone, trust and permissioning engine, and data and directory service, the Xively platform can be integrated with hardware solutions, like TI's SimpleLink Wi-Fi solutions. LogMeIn complements this technology platform with Xively Business Services, a team of IoT experts that helps companies combine cloud-connected devices, mobile and web apps, and comprehensive CRM/ERP systems into fully-integrated IoT solutions.
