PLAT.ONE announces acquisition by SAP

Plat.One’s leading IoT platform will be integrated into SAP’s Hana Cloud Platform

Palo Alto, CA – September 28, 2016 – PLAT.ONE (www.plat.one), the leading enterprise-grade Internet of Things (IoT) solution platform, today announced its acquisition by SAP SE.

PLAT.ONE’s IoT platform enables the rapid development and scalable management of enterprise IoT environments, including connected products, smart cities, connected transport and smart manufacturing.

Dr. John Bates, CEO of PLAT.ONE, said, “It is a great testimony to the PLAT.ONE team and technology that SAP selected PLAT.ONE to become a key part of its IoT offering. We believe this acquisition further strengthens and solidifies SAP’s position as the global leader in the connected business space and we’re excited to be part of that opportunity.”

SAP’s IoT approach enables IoT development and runtime services through the Hana Cloud Platform (HCP) – to make it easy for enterprises and system integrators to build IoT-enabled applications. SAP utilizes HCP to build its own IoT solutions to accelerate deployment of particular IoT use cases for customers. HCP also empowers SAP’s partner ecosystem, enabling partners to populate the SAP Hana Application Center marketplace with IoT-enabled solutions.

Bjoern Goerke, EVP of Product and Innovation Technology, SAP said, “We conducted a review of IoT platforms in the market and found PLAT.ONE to be a strong leader, particularly in device interoperability, edge processing capabilities, and development capabilities. It is great to add these leading capabilities to SAP HCP.”

Filippo Murroni, Founder and CTO of PLAT.ONE, added, “We are delighted to be part of SAP. We’ve done amazing things as a start-up and now we look forward to contributing strategically to a much larger business!”

PLAT.ONE and Nwave to Deliver Complete Internet of Things Parking Solution

Palo Alto, CA – March 10, 2015 – PLAT.ONE (www.plat.one), the first Enterprise-Grade Internet of Things (IoT) application platform, today announced a partnership with Nwave (www.nwavetec.com), a rapidly growing supplier of low-power, wide-area (LPWA) wireless network solutions to bring a suite of ready-to-use industrial solutions to market, starting with a parking solution.

Nwave’s LPWA wireless communication platform and devices are optimized for low data intensive IoT applications. Unlike GSM, CDMA or ZigBee technologies, Nwave’s technology is based on an ultra narrow band radio protocol targeted at large scale, high-density, low-maintenance networks of sensors and devices.

Combining Nwave’s communication technology with tailored applications built on PLAT.ONE’s Enterprise-Grade application platform enables rapid, secure and cost-effective deployments of large-scale IoT solutions for energy, city services, environmental monitoring, healthcare, agriculture, as well as other industries.

The joint parking solution will combine Nwave’s Sparkit Smart Parking Solution with ready-to-use parking management and reporting screens that can be deployed on-premises or in a cloud to provide a low-cost, quick deployment solution. The Sparkit solution is perfectly suited for PLAT.ONE’s platform including the CITY.ONE vertical solution.

“Our focus at Nwave has been on time to value, enabling customers to rapidly deploy private LPWA solutions in days not months,” said Jonathan Wiggin, CEO of Nwave. “PLAT.ONE’s rapid application platform allows us to offer those same customers a complete parking management application with an uncompromising approach to security and scalability.”

“We are excited to add Nwave to our rapidly growing eco-system of PLAT.ONE-Ready partners. Nwave’s unique private LPWA solutions are a perfect complement to PLAT.ONE’s Enterprise-Grade rapid application platform providing an open-standards-based set of solutions with proven technology and unmatched scalability,” said Filippo Murroni, CEO of PLAT.ONE.
