"Software is eating the World"
In 2011, Marc Andreesen contributed an essay to The Wall Street Journal about the importance of software to our digital future. Naturally, as a hardware supplier, we took notice. But it wasn't Andreesen's wisdom and foresight, but customer demands that drove us to expand our software offerings. The goal: to make development, deployment and management of connected technology as simple as possible.
