"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 or IoT technology trends that drove us to expand our software offerings, but customer demands. The goal: to make development, deployment and management of IoT technology solutions as simple as possible.
When it comes to IoT innovation, companies must remain versatile with their offerings to keep up. MultiTech’s long history with this technology gives us the experience to develop powerful and intuitive software for a wide range of applications.
Programmable embedded software provides enhanced security and enables task execution at the edge for reduced latency and cost optimization.
