Boston, MA and London, UK, 7 January 2013: Xchanging, the business process, procurement and technology services provider and integrator and MachineShop, a next generation enterprise middleware provider, today announce a partnership focused on the ‘Internet of every Thing’ which will help bridge the critical gap between Information and Operations Technology – or the IT-OT dilemma which is confounding business and technology executives worldwide.
Xchanging is actively engaged with enterprise customers in a variety of markets, many of which want to leverage opportunities arising from the ability for all machines, systems, buildings, utilities and even vehicles to more easily connect and communicate with enterprise applications. MachineShop has pioneered a next-generation, cloud-based middleware service specifically focused on the opportunities and challenges arising from connecting enterprise applications to the ‘Internet of every Thing’ The MachineShop cloud service creates, aggregates, exposes and manages discrete API services that tame the overwhelming amount of data and complexity arising from ‘connected things.’
Increasingly referred to as the ‘Internet of every Thing’, billions and soon trillions of “things” will be IP-enabled and connected to the Internet. Industry analysts agree that currently billions of devices are already connected on the internet and soon tens of billions will follow. Gartner Group has placed the ‘Internet of Things’ on its Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2013. Networking, hardware and storage companies have made great progress in establishing the physical connection between ‘things’ and the Internet. MachineShop is uniquely focused on the virtual infrastructure requirements in this emerging market. Xchanging is leveraging the power of this cloud-based service and combining it with its global competencies in delivering complex business solutions for business process management, application development, systems integration and managed solution delivery across multiple industries.
“Xchanging is pleased to partner with Machineshop to offer a customized set of industry solutions for the clients we serve,” said David Carpini, President of Xchanging Solutions (USA). “We envision assisting our Insurance clients with usage based insurance premium calculations by being able to monitor physical assets insured; assisting our real estate clients by providing smart building applications, or assisting utility clients by solving their number one priority of helping to integrate their Information Technology platforms with their Operational Technology platforms. The ability to unlock the silos of data currently trapped in operational systems and make that data available in the IT ecosystem sets the stage for real-time, context based and intuitive applications leveraging Big Data and high end analytics.”
Michael Campbell, CEO and President of Machineshop says: “Leading solution providers and enterprises will literally transform their businesses using MachineShop’s cloud-based middleware service. The intersection of IT-OT has been a place of complexity, conflict and collisions until now.
