Gemalto’s cloud-based service platform provides several improved features including application programming interfaces, pre-integration with edge devices plus data management and visualization tools that allow solution developers to build end-to-end applications on a solid foundation and focus on their core competencies. An open JavaTM platform connects distinct elements of the entire M2M portfolio while allowing customers to scale technology and incorporate additional capabilities when needed.

"Our recent research on M2M solution requirements identified end-to-end solution security, IT integration and reducing complexity of the value chain as the top three priorities for M2M solution providers. Gemalto is clearly addressing all three of these.”
