With smart products and services you generate added value – for you and your customers

Internet of Things

Take a certain device, add hardware and software to it and connect it to the world. This describes, in simple terms, the fourth industrial revolution. For presumably one of two reasons, you are also looking for support for the development of smart products and solutions:

  • You want to benefit directly from smart systems, for example through the integration and intelligent control of components within your production / value creation chain.

  • You develop products for your customers to make their lives easier. Perhaps you are even taking on a pioneering role that sets you apart from other market players.

Challenges on all levels.

Making a product smart or offering smart services is not straightforward. There are plenty of obstacles and pitfalls lurking on your way to a market-ready product.

Then there are aspects of cyber security. Especially in the context of connected devices with contact to the outside world, it is essential to secure your customers' data as well as your business model adequately.

Together we will remove obstacles and put your IoT development on a solid foundation.

We accompany your mission.

It is most likely, that in your everyday life, you have already come into contact with a smart solution that was developed by us. Because: Our know-how is in household appliances, infotainment systems and industrial plants, but also in numerous online portals that manage your data and contracts. Furthermore, we are actively involved in research projects, among others on autonomous mobility.

From the idea through concept up to implementation – our development teams create your all-embracing solution that will be of lasting and sustainable benefit to you – all from one expert hand! On request, we will also design your hardware, firmware, the cloud/backend solution, mobile apps and web applications as individual solutions.

We aim to please. That's why we listen carefully to what visions and goals are behind your project. This is the only way we can advise you purposefully so that you can make well-founded decisions.

Your smart solution is successful only if it is actually used. Only convincing design, good usability and user experience (UX) will turn your users into fans – our UI and UX experts make sure of that.

The quality of your solution is a fundamental factor for its profitability. Poor quality results in rising costs over the life cycle of the software and will reduce your profit. Our sustainable development approach ensures that your solution pays for itself in the long run and can be efficiently adapted to new requirements.

Your next step.

This section is specifically about you and how we can support you. To get to know each other, a personal conversation is the best way to find out. Perhaps you only need expert advice. Or maybe you are looking for an holistic solution from start to finish. In all cases we look forward to getting to know you.

That is what we are particularly good at.

IoT consulting and conceptual design

Take advantage of our know-how of the development of smart solutions.

You are still at the very beginning? Together we can answer the question which business processes you may optimize with the help of IoT or which potential lies in the digitalization of your business model. We also provide you with advice and support for the conception of new products and the expansion into new business areas.

You have a blueprint or have already started? If so, we can provide you with useful support by reviewing your existing solution, for example in the form of code analyses or security reviews.

Let's make an initial call

Appliance development

Our support ranges from the selection of suitable hardware – from chip to casing. If desired, we can also take over the development of the circuit board layout and the coordination of production.

In addition, we develop the firmware for your IoT devices and the corresponding mechanisms to update the firmware safely. With a model-driven development approach and the associated abstraction of the application logic, we ease the switch to new hardware.

Let's talk about your device

Cloud development

We realize the communication with cloud services and set up a suitable system architecture for the business logic and processing of data.

Large amounts of data? No worries! We know how to deal with vast amounts of data so that your application remains performant.

In addition, already during the design of the architecture of your IT system, we make sure that a particularly high availability of services can be guaranteed.

Start with the cloud now

Web and mobile app development

With our individual frontend solutions you can keep the overview of your data or configure and control your smart devices. We develop your mobile app for iOS and Android. Depending on the functional range and the purpose of the app, we develop apps that are native, hybrid or based on current web technologies.

In order to develop mobile applications efficiently, our Swift, Java and Kotlin experts use proven frameworks and place particular importance to a user-friendly and intuitive solution.

You're still undecided?

Get some clarity!

Small things often make the difference when it comes to taking the next step. In the following, we will help provide clarity regarding common worries, blockers or preconceptions:

Do you recognize yourself in one of the following statements? "We've never done this before", "so far it still works" or "never change a running system".

Of course, your processes continue to function without a smart solution. But the world keeps on turning and other market players are taking action.

Let's talk about how you can keep up with the pace with small, manageable digitalization measures or even take on a pioneering role.

Maybe you simply haven't had the time to think about the possibilities of IoT solutions for your company. In fact, most companies feel the same way. The potential of smart solutions therefore naturally remains largely unrecognized.

Why not invest one day for a workshop? Together, we will look at your processes and find out where a smart solution creates added value at reasonable cost.

From experience, we can say that a transformation can only be successful by taking one step at a time. It therefore makes sense to approach the topic of IoT gradually.

Let us find out together where we can achieve some first results with manageable effort.

As a matter of fact, your company is a service provider obliged to protect the data of its users. The loss of customer data can quickly lead to a loss of trust and damage to your reputation. An intrusion could also disrupt production. Your consideration is therefore not unjustified.

We know these risks and know how to counter them. We take security requirements for software and hardware into account in the early design phase – Security by Design is part of our signature. This approach, coupled with the implementation of secure end-to-end encryption, reduces your risk to a minimum in the event of a cyber attack.

We will always develop your IoT system with the possibility to update the device firmware via secure communication channels in case security gaps are detected.

We like to advise you on concrete measures to be taken for your specific application scenario.

Share your worries or concerns with us

We understand your doubts. After all, every IT service provider aims to make a good impression, comparable to a first date. Especially if you don't know us yet, healthy scepticism is perfectly fine. After all, you don't want to experience any unpleasant surprises.

We therefore invite you to get to know the people who work at itemis. In an open round we will gladly answer all your questions, discuss technologies and describe to you in which industries and projects we have already implemented smart solutions.
