Ekkono Solutions has signed a global distribution agreement with Qt. Qt brings Ekkono into their toolchain to help customers speed up their development and deployment of embedded software onboard connected things (IoT).
The Ekkono-Qt partnership is signed for a joint mission to improve machine learning integration in the embedded development space. Ekkono offers a self-developed state-of-the-art software, purpose built for IoT (Internet of Things) to expedite the development of smart, self-learning and predictive features. With Ekkono integrated into Qt’s cross-platform software framework for app and device development, the solution enables a faster iteration and prototyping procedure for all stakeholders wanting to explore the embedded space.
– Both Ekkono and Qt are experts in embedded software. This partnership really makes one plus one become three as it simplifies the process of deploying our software on different customer products. The real value of smart IoT is realized when customers go beyond pilots and roll it out to end-users. I am proud and happy that such a reputable nerd company as Qt partners with us, which gives us an extended reach and credibility on our mission to make all connected things smart, says Jon Lindén, CEO of Ekkono Solutions.
With Qt’s strong presence in more than 70 industries – 1.5 million developers world-wide – the new solution will reach a global market and offer a streamlined method to implement machine learning models in to IoT products. New and existing customers can explore the embedded field in an easy deployment environment and advance their digital transformation initiatives using Ekkono’s code in the Qt Design Studio. The focus of the partnership is functionality and easy adoption.
– We are impressed with Ekkono. Both of their technology and their team. At Qt we’ve seen the demand for machine learning on edge devices grow fast, and we’ve identified Ekkono as a perfect fit for our single code solutions for various platforms. This unique partnership makes it easy to do something advanced like implementing edge machine learning at scale, says Michele Rossi, Senior Product Manager at Qt.
