San Jose, CA, August 25, 2017 – ADLINK Technology,Inc., a global provider of leading edge computing solutions that drive data-to-decision applications across industries, and VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, recently announced a new collaboration to provide mutual customers with a pre-integrated Internet of Things (IoT) solution that takes the guesswork out of selecting the hardware and software components of a typical IoT architecture. As part of the collaboration, ADLINK will present a live IoT demonstration at VMworld August 27-31, 2017 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As organizations embrace IoT, they cite vendor selection and integration as a major challenge. According to Gartner, through 2018, 75 percent “of IoT projects will take up to twice as long as planned, with consequent cost implications.” (1) Due to the lack of a single point IoT solution, enterprises are forced to cobble together multiple, disparate offerings and then invest time and effort to maintain them in the longer run--which is a major inhibitor to IoT adoption.

VMware and ADLINK are testing and enabling their respective IoT solutions to work together to offer mutual customers a comprehensive, supported IoT offering featuring the requisite hardware, software and services to tackle their IoT initiatives. Additionally, the companies expect to conduct joint go-to-market activities.

ADLINK is ‘Leading EDGE COMPUTING’ by delivering the network nodes that enable practical and scalable IoT systems. Building on its strong heritage in embedded computing, ADLINK provides the hardware and advanced Edge-aware software capabilities necessary for the multi-vendor, multi-standard connectivity required in end-to-end IT/OT business solutions. With its strategic partners VMware, OSIsoft and IBM, ADLINK reduces the complexity and helps speed the deployment of enterprise IoT systems that liberate data from vendor silos and other islands-of-automation, thus enabling business improvement in terms of operational excellence, enhanced customer service and support for new business models.

The recently announced VMware Pulse IoT Center will deliver the monitoring, managing and security needs of IoT infrastructure from the edge to the cloud. Additionally, VMware Pulse IoT Center will simplify IoT complexity by managing all ‘things’ as one, improve the reliability and security of IoT infrastructure through accurate and real-time visibility of ‘thing’ health, and accelerate the ROI of IoT use cases by streamlining how IoT projects are deployed and scaled. VMware Pulse IoT Center is expected to become available in calendar 2017.

VMware’s IT expertise as a leader in IT infrastructure along with ADLINK’s deep knowledge about Operation Technology (OT) across various industries will benefit mutual customers as they implement IoT use cases throughout their organizations.

“The world of IoT is exciting and daunting at the same time. OT and IT organizations approach very aligned goals from different points of view, and a common denominator is hard to find. ADLINK and VMware’s collaboration shows what happens when we bridge the divide. Creating new disruptive industry solutions takes a lot more than any one vendor can provide – and our ecosystem approach is second to none in the industry in terms of practical experience.” – Rob Risany, Executive Vice President - IoT Strategy, Solutions & Technology, ADLINK

“VMware and ADLINK have a common goal of speeding up IoT adoption for organizations by enabling their solutions to reduce the time and effort required to setup an end-to-end IoT solution and improve the experience. VMware and ADLINK together will provide a comprehensive edge infrastructure solution to power IoT analytics platforms that deliver new business insights for mutual customers.” – Mimi Spier, vice president, Internet of Things, VMware.
