Aussie startup Reekoh partners with Kyocera to launch IoT marketplace for Asian systems integrators

21 Nov 16

Australian startup Reekoh has announced a partnership with Singapore's Kyocera Communications Systems to bring Internet of Things (IoT) technology to Singapore and South East Asia.

The technology will be channeled through system integrators and customer teams, providing Reekoh's business enablement and IoT integration platform to enterprise cloud and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

The company says its online marketplace, named the 'Plugin Store', has been integral to its IoT ecosystem. The store provides plugin options from most large market vendors, including AWS, Cisco, Microsoft and Sigfox. It also specialises in market offerings covering areas including analytics, machine learning and cloud storage.

Through this platform, partners are adopting the open plugin framework and are building their own integrations for enterprise customers, the company says.

“With Reekoh, we’ve taken a different path within the IoT Platform space to most other competitors,” says Reekoh's CEO and co-founder Dale Rankine.

Rankine believes that the most opportunity comes from data within a connected ecosystem and the contextual decision-making surrounding that data.

“IoT is arguably one of the hottest areas of interest and growth in the technology sector, and will become a major driving force of change as we realise the benefits of having a highly connected and data-driven environment," he continues.

According to Reekoh, its open marketplace is helping the company put itself at the centre of the booming IoT industry.

The company has secured a number of early charter partners and customers. It has also received interest from numerous industries and regions, and plans to open a potential investment round in early 2017.

Kyocera Communications Systems (Singapore) managing director Shigeo Oshima says the partnership with Reekoh will help extend overall reach into the IoT market.

“The endless possibilities offered by Reekoh via numerous plugins ensures compelling features for new and existing IoT initiatives for KCSG. The disruption in technology allows for very exciting projects to come. We believe a collaboration with a vibrant firm such as Reekoh will trigger innovative ideas in our business area and will add a lot of value to the entire IoT marketplace," Oshima says.
