Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, today announces it has been named as one of four “Cool Vendors” in the 2013 IT/OT Alignment and Integration report• by leading industry analyst Gartner Inc. Gartner defines a "cool vendor" as a company that offers technologies or solutions that are innovative, impactful and intriguing.
According to the Gartner report recommendations,“Integration managers should look at cloud-based integration platforms supporting vendor neutral-technologies to optimize costs, accelerate time to deployment, and reduce vendor lock-in for integration of OT systems with enterprise applications.”
Eurotech’s Everyware Cloud is an integration platform as a service (iPaaS), which simplifies device and data management by connecting distributed devices over secure and reliable cloud services. The Everyware™ Software Framework is a comprehensive software framework that puts a layer between the operating system and the customer application, with industry standard interfaces that shorten custom development time and software that can be easily ported from one hardware platform to another.
“Integration managers and other IT leaders involved in the definition and planning of IT/OT integration strategies should look at iPaaS-oriented approaches to address the issues of collecting, aggregating, filtering, preprocessing and analyzing OT data, and of integrating OT systems with back-end enterprise applications as a way to optimize costs and time to deployment,” according to the report.
