Entando Named Cool Vendor in Web Computing, 2015 by Gartner

An Innovative Open Source Web Application Platform for IoT.

San Diego, CA - (April 27, 2015) Entando, a very fast, light weight Web Application Platform for IoT applications was named in Gartner's report: "Cool Vendors in Web Computing, 2015". The paper describes companies who are significantly changing the foundations of the Web. 

"The capability to internet enable the physical world is creating a demand on corporations similar to the impact of the Web in 1999. Today, rather than a web strategy, enterprises are being told they need to develop an IoT strategy to remain competitive, and just like then, many enterprises are not quite sure what they need to do.", said Paul Hinz, COO and Founder of Entando. "Tools are complex, architectures and standards are shifting and many business unit leaders are unsure of how to implement the technology or why. Entando's innovation is to simplify the end-to-end development of IoT applications.

Developed within open source, Entando provides a managed services offering for an extremely broad set of new use cases including consumer product portals, multi-channel command and control systems, and process automation of real world activities. Entando is additionally helping system integration partners develop IoT practices while also helping enterprises understand the requirements and best use cases for IoT enabled operations and products.
