Unlimit: Leading the Evolution of Indian IoT Landscape
India is rising as a prominent hub for a robust developer environment in the world. Today, with an increasing popularity of the digital universe in the area, a significant part of the country’s corporate is picking up on the trending IoT, and the start-up culture. The evolving market for IoT-powered businesses is flourishing in a new light with a shared interest of the government to invest. In the developing economies of India and China, IoT applications take a very fundamental and diverse approach, serving as end-to-end solutions that serve a basic but wide range of sectors.
Starting on this path and building an organization around it, Unlimit has established its mark in the Indian corporate landscape as a business unit that solely focuses on IoT. Backed by India’s leading conglomerate, Reliance Group, Unlimit is driven by an in-depth knowledge of the Indian market and an unparalleled expertise of IoT implementations ranging from connectivity to application development and analytics. Dr. Matthias Wurster, VP Marketing and Business Development, Unlimit, says, “We tailor our products in such a way that suits the specific requirements of the Indian market.” The company’s key offerings are primarily designed to address the B2B markets of sectors like Automotive, Transportation & Logistics, Infrastructure, Public Utility, BFSI, Healthcare and Smart Cities.
Unlimit strives to add value to its products through strategic partnerships with established IoT stakeholders such as Cisco Jasper, Cumulocity, and IBM Watson. “We have been extremely fortunate in selecting the best-in-class partners who are cloud-based and compatible to work with from a connectivity point-of-view,” adds Juergen Hase, CEO of the firm. The Cisco Jasper platform is currently employed by more than 4000 companies worldwide. This makes it easier for any of these external players leveraging the functionality of the Cisco Jasper platform to enter and adapt to the Indian market.
