California-based startup KnowThings have partnered with IoT (Internet of Things) environment provider ObjectSpectrum in a bid to simplify IoT solutions. With this alliance, KnowThings aims to accelerate development of IoT solutions in a bid to reduce time-to-market for IoT based applications, reducing developer dependencies in the process.
According to KnowThings, IoT allows organizations to dig into real-time insights and leverage the same for business decisions. They claim that IoT also allows developers to fasten their time to build software and reduce the time-to-market applications.
By partnering with ObjectSpectrum, KnowThings say that they will facilitate communication between the prototype of IoT applications and their demo versions. The say that with this communication, organizations will able to scale devices and applications, taking away the workload off developers.
Speaking about this alliance, Eric Lenington, CEO of ObjectSpectrum, commented:
The partnership with KnowThings is key to allowing highly-customized applications to be tested with a 10 times advantage when it comes to time and cost. It also allows for simulating real device behavior at all stages of application development.
Other benefits include a faster time to market and the ability of application developers to work independently of hardware engineering teams.
KnowThings say that they will be able to help customers uncover issues at a customer’s IoT environment. Explaining this, Anand Kameswaran, CEO of KnowThings, said:
The KnowThings IoT virtualizer saves time and helps you uncover issues at scale and allows IoT developers to build robust code by testing from the ground up. It helps uncover issues in a customer environment that they didn’t know existed previously and works well with any IoT application that needs to test on any scale.
