Acquisition strengthens software and IoT capabilities at device level
Global technology solutions provider Avnet has signed an agreement to acquire Witekio (formerly known as Adeneo Embedded). Witekio is a privately held company with expertise in software and embedded systems that helps developers overcome the technical challenges and complexity of developing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.
The deal furthers Avnet’s end-to-end IoT strategy by adding more capabilities and expertise in embedded software, edge computing and security, specifically from hardware to the cloud. This acquisition also underscores Avnet’s commitment to helping companies reduce the time, cost and complexities of successfully bringing IoT products to market.
Develops software for every layer from devices to the cloud
The addition of Witekio to the Avnet ecosystem follows the company’s acquisition of Softweb Solutions, another software company, in December 2018. Witekio develops software for every layer from devices to the cloud, and Softweb develops cloud-based software to connect, manage and analyze data. Witekio’s user-centric technology includes connected hardware, device architectures and applications that complement Softweb’s offerings.
“With Witekio’s expertise, we can more rapidly deliver a complete hardware, software, cloud and middleware solution that delivers insights based on the customer’s specific business case,” says Pete Bartolotta, President of Business Transformation, Avnet.
