Embotics® increases its European distribution footprint with new partners

Prianto and BGS partnerships enable Embotics to target more resellers in the UK and Benelux

London, UK - 5 November 2012 - Embotics Corporation, a pioneer in virtualisation and automated cloud management, today announced that it has signed distribution agreements with Prianto and BGS Netherlands. Through these agreements both companies will now be offering their reseller partners Embotics V-Commander®, a virtualisation and private cloud management product. These resellers will now be able to help their customers realise immediate savings through better management of their virtual estates.

"We are very pleased to have Prianto and BGS Netherlands on board, as both companies have a great track record in developing profitable and sustainable partner channels. We see them as key distribution partners as we expand into the UK and Benelux markets," said Colin Wright, vice president for EMEA at Embotics. "When you add these agreements to the pan-European distribution agreement we signed with Magirus at the start of the year, it is a clear indication of the value that the channel sees in Embotics V-Commander. If resellers are going to achieve additional revenues from virtualisation in the future they need to demonstrate added value to their customers. With Embotics V-Commander, resellers can help organisations to ensure operational efficiency and deliver cost and resource savings in a matter of weeks."

Embotics has signed distribution agreements with both Prianto's UK and Netherlands operations. Prianto was set up to address the market need for specialised distribution focusing on identifying leading-edge technology vendors who can provide resellers with new complementary products that can give them a commercial edge. BGS Netherlands has 25 years' experience in the enterprise hardware and software markets. The company carries a highly-technical range of cloud and virtualisation products and has successfully taken these products to market within the region. These skills and experience made both Prianto and BGS Netherlands ideal distribution partners for Embotics as it makes inroads into Europe.

Embotics V-Commander can be installed and configured in a matter of minutes, providing a 360-degree view of virtual and private cloud environments. Comprehensive self-service functionality enables users to provision VMs themselves and automate the end-to-end workflow process, while offering chargeback and IT cost analysis. This can help resellers identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies in their virtual data centres while at the same time dramatically lowering the costs of deploying private clouds.

Rashied Akrum, managing director at Prianto, said: "We are always looking to work with innovative technology companies and Embotics certainly fits the bill. With cloud services threatening to damage their revenues, resellers need to innovate and broaden their product offerings. Embotics V-Commander provides resellers with the tools to position themselves as trusted advisors and at the same time help them to drive greater value from their customers' data centre and virtualisation investments."

"We are very excited to be working with Embotics," said Rob Mooij, CTO at BGS. "Embotics V-Commander complements our existing cloud and virtualisation offerings. We believe that such an easy to deploy product presents resellers with a great business opportunity. We see it as very much a low risk, high reward proposition for many resellers as they look to derive additional revenue from virtualisation and cloud computing."

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
