The movement toward interoperability for the Internet of Things
Mission Data has joined the zigbee alliance, a non-profit association of companies creating, maintaining, and delivering open, global standards for low-powered wireless Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Mission Data has built a variety of digital products for enterprise IoT platforms over the past decade, including a temperature monitoring solution for Kroger, the largest supermarket chain in the U.S. That solution is now deployed in nearly 3,000 stores and is giving the Fortune 50 retail giant a 5:1 ROI.
The announcement comes as Mission Data plans to launch new IoT products in the coming months, providing real-time sensor monitoring and analytics at the enterprise level.
“We are delighted to join the zigbee alliance,” said Stuart Gavurin, Mission Data CEO. “We strongly believe that interoperability is key and agree zigbee standards are essential to the future of IoT.”
“Mission Data has been at the forefront of software solutions for the Internet of Things, and we are excited to have them join the alliance,” added John Osborne, Chairman of the zigbee alliance and Vice President of Leedarson.
The zigbee alliance is the foundation and future of the IoT. Established in 2002, the alliance’s wide-ranging global membership collaborates to create and evolve universal open standards for the products transforming the way we live, work, and play.
