CRN’s 2023 IoT Innovators: Fueling The Real-World Data Revolution
These solution providers are focused on an assortment of opportunities in the IoT space, whether it’s protecting industrial systems from cyberattacks, integrating AI-powered surveillance systems or using machine learning models to improve mining and manufacturing operations.
When ThingLogix started in 2014, the solution provider spent a significant amount of time building the plumbing and infrastructure for every IoT project that came its way.
It didn’t take long until the San Francisco-based company, an advanced technology partner for Amazon Web Services, realized that it was “building the same thing for everybody,” according to Jason Burch, vice president of business development and strategic partnerships at ThingLogix.
So the solution provider took the foundational software and services it built from the ground up for every IoT project and rolled them up into a serverless framework called ThingLogix Foundry, which enables the company to develop and deliver solutions faster with lower up-front costs.
“It helps us accelerate development and delivery. The Amazon reps love it too,” Burch said.
ThingLogix is among the 26 solution providers recognized this year as CRN’s IoT Innovators, which are building innovative applications by partnering with cutting-edge vendors in a market where businesses are expected to spend $805.7 billion on IoT projects in 2023, according to research firm IDC.
By offering ThingLogix Foundry as the foundation for IoT projects, the solution provider has had an easier time scoring customer deals, and it has also given the company more time to offer services that provide unique value, whether it’s developing applications or baking intelligence into solutions.
“It’s helped our customers in terms of spend, which makes it an easier sale because they don’t have to write a million-dollar check on the front end,” said Burch.
“At the end of the day, I think this is a better way to do it,” he added.
What follows are the 26 value-added resellers, systems integrators and managed services providers recognized in CRN’s 2023 IoT Innovators. With headquarters ranging from California and Pennsylvania to Ontario and Florida, these companies are focused on an assortment of opportunities in the IoT space, whether it’s protecting industrial systems from cyberattacks, integrating AI-powered surveillance systems or using machine learning models to improve mining and manufacturing operations.
