New Linux Foundation Members Leverage Global Linux Growth

BearingPoint, Daynix, Linaro Limited and Systena Expand International Reach of Linux-Based Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced that BearingPoint GmbH, Daynix, Linaro Limited and Systena are joining the organization.

Nearly every industry worldwide leverages Linux for high-performing, mission-critical enterprise computing today. Opportunities with next-generation chips and ARM architectures offer ample expansion for open source as the foundation for Internet of Things connectivity, connected car innovation and hyper-scale computing delivered as cloud services. These developments also offer plentiful development, training and consulting engagements for third-party IT professionals with Linux skills. Based throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East, today's new Linux Foundation members are tapping into these computing trends and newly hatched market opportunities.

More information about today's newest Linux Foundation members:

BearingPoint is a management and technology consulting firm with European roots and a global reach. The company's consulting network of 9,200 people serves clients in more than 70 countries and engages with them for measurable results and long-lasting success. Its consultants deliver real results by combining their collective industry, operational and technology expertise and tailoring solutions for each client's individual challenges. This adaptive approach has led to long-standing relationships with many of the world's leading companies and organizations across numerous industries, including commercial, insurance, financial, government, manufacturing among others. BearingPoint also joined the Linux Foundation's Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) Steering Committee comprised of automotive, communication, semiconductor, electronics and academic contributors working to create a Linux-based platform to meet the security and performance requirements of the automotive industry.

"BearingPoint is committed to making available to AGL our leading Open Source Software management methodology and automotive experience, which has successfully enabled our customers to safely and efficiently leverage the business benefits of Open Source Software," said Matthias Loebich, Partner at BearingPoint and leader of the firm-wide Automotive segment.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
