Lugano, Switzerland and Boston – (work wireArduino, the open source company used by tens of millions of developers around the world, today revealed plans to expand its suite of hardware, software, connectivity, and professional developer tools. This move brings the speed, simplicity and power of the Arduino innovation platform to the enterprise, providing a new generation of engineers with the flexibility and access they have come to expect in the work environment. By expanding its offerings at the enterprise level, Arduino charts a new strategic path, focusing on larger organizations while also maintaining its commitment to offering the industry’s most innovative tools to makers and students.
“The way companies solve contemporary challenges and identify new business opportunities is rapidly evolving as a new generation of engineers moves into the workforce in greater numbers. Through this investment, we are developing and delivering a new suite of enterprise solutions dedicated to igniting this transformation,” commented Fabio Violante, CEO of Arduino.
Generation Z and Millennials combined make up more than 63 percent of world populationAnd according to a recent study detailed in Engineering.com, “the flexibility of the workplace and team communication and the technological limitations of current design tools (source) “Among the Millennial and Gen Z engineers’ biggest concerns.
“Engineers of these generations grew up using Arduino boards in STEM software around the world, and were accustomed to the accessibility, simplicity, and power of the company’s open source hardware, software, and cloud services,” said Massimo Banzi, Co-Founder, Massimo Banzi, Arduino’s President and Chief Marketing Officer. “They are now taking these demands to the enterprise when they enter the work force.”
Arduino was born at the Interactive Design Institute Ivrea as an easy-to-use rapid prototyping tool, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. Over the years, Arduino has expanded to offer tools for education and professionals. Today’s Arduino ecosystem includes a wide range of partners and customers, and now the company has set its sights on empowering a new generation of professional engineers with enterprise-grade applications. To achieve this, Arduino will expand its professional offerings, including:
Provide specialized low-code cloud services to accelerate the development and deployment of IoT applications to meet industry needs.
Introducing new smart edge design solutions – including new system modules.
Create and integrate new AI capabilities for designers.
Enhance global prototype production capabilities by expanding the existing systems integrator partner program.
Partnership with global leaders; A new round of financing behind a new vision
Arduino has a history of working closely with technology leaders around the world, including Arm, Google, Bosch, Intel, and others, to ensure that their products are always cutting-edge, on-trend and grounded in the real world.
