DataArt (New York City, NY, USA) already claims to have years of experience in related disciplines – including embedded software, electrical engineering, prototyping, cloud platforms, web and mobile development and API design – and aims to build on this in developing IoT and M2M concepts.

It says that one of the key solutions at the cornerstone of its new consulting practice will be its signature open source M2M framework – DeviceHive – which allows clients to focusing on product creation without having to invest time in device communications and management.

DataArt believes that could be a key differentiator for companies looking to have their products on the market ahead of competitors.
