Why is IoT so hard?
In order to simplify IoT, we first need to list out the reasons that makes it hard:
- IoT is about turning information of the real world into data.
- Digitizing the physical world requires both hardware and software.
- The vast majority of solution providers are software only.
IoT is the first type of IT project that relies heavily on hardware, and the entire IT solutions industry was built around software only. This is one of the main why IoT projects fail.
It’s time for a new type of full-stack solutions company to take on IoT. Companies that can do software, hardware, and manufacture the devices. Companies like Ximplar.
No Assembly. Factories Included.
Ximplar was built from the ground up to encompass the entire spectrum from software to hardware development. That alone makes us a rare bird, but we are raising the bar even higher by manufacturing the hardware. We provide full support from start to finish so you can rest easy. Well, at least from the development and manufacturing standpoint =)
It is next to impossible to find another one stop shop partner like us. So what makes Ximplar so unique?
It’s not just for real estate. Location matters to technology companies as well. Most people think of Silicon Valley as the perfect place for a startup to be. In general that’s true – unless you need to manufacture hardware products. Factory production requires constant micro-management and fine-tuning, and it is impossible to do so half a world away. That’s why we picked Hong Kong as the base for Ximplar.
Hong Kong has an unfair advantage for companies with manufacturing as a core competency. The best factories in the world is only a train ride away, making it easy to manage relationship and production. A mature ecosystem at the ready to resolve any issues, be it factory, logistic or legal related.
At the same time, Hong Kong enjoys free communication with the entire world. It is the only place that bridges “the World’s Factory” to the rest of the world. Thus giving Ximplar its unique, inherent advantage.
We strategically built Ximplar from the ground up to make software, firmware and hardware solutions that work seamlessly together. Above all, our network of long-term factory partners are capable of mass-producing the hardware devices. You won’t find another full stack IoT service like us anywhere. Not unless you have an Apple-sized development and production budget.
