Emerald establish new Internet Of Things division

Internet of things division

As a result of overall company success in 2014, and the achievements of the Big Data and Security divisions, the Directors of Emerald Technology have made an informed decision to form a new vertical within the business. This new division will be focused on the fast-growing Internet of Things industry.

It is forecast that, by 2020, approximately 26 billion objects will be linked together through the Internet, and – according to Gartner – the Internet of Things will generate an added value of $1.9 trillion across a number of sectors.

Consequently, as part of our ongoing expansion plans, we plan to build a specialist team to concentrate on sourcing top tier customer touch talent for vendors within this space.

Company Director Martin Lacey, who will be taking initial responsibility for the new business unit, says, ‘Economists and analysts are predicting great things for the IoT industry, and Emerald Technology needs to be a part of it. We are very excited about the prospect of extending our remit to work with an increasing client base in this dynamic market sector.’
