Sierra Monitor Corporation Connects IoT Field Devices to the Salesforce(TM) Platform With Partner Devicify
MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - September 14, 2015) - Sierra Monitor Corporation (OTCQB: SRMC), provider of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions that connect and protect high-value infrastructure assets, today announced that it has integrated its industry leading FieldServer protocol gateway with Devicify Connected Products Management™ (CPM), an IoT management suite on the Salesforce platform that manages and controls deployed assets across and through business processes. The integration addresses a key pain point faced by developers of business applications on the Salesforce platform, namely the need to easily receive and send information between their business applications and the remote devices or assets that are installed in the field.
"Software companies and enterprises are building IIoT applications on cloud platforms to improve service, increase utilization of remote assets, and improve organizational productivity and innovation. However, application developers generally live in the world of business logic and are unfamiliar with the world of physical assets," said Varun Nagaraj, CEO of Sierra Monitor Corporation. "The integration of the FieldServer protocol gateway and Devicify CPM allows application developers on the Salesforce platform to focus on effectively using device data in their business logic rather than worrying about how to connect to devices to get and send data. With more than 200,000 FieldServer gateways already installed in the field, Sierra Monitor has a long and successful track record of integrating data from assets in the field to other devices, to management software, and to cloud-based applications."
"We are excited to announce that our partnership with Sierra Monitor makes IoT initiatives easier by introducing interoperability between Sierra Monitor's products and Devicify CPM," said Scott Johnson, CEO of Devicify. "The wide variety of products that communicate using the 140 plus different protocols supported by Sierra Monitor can now be controlled from within Devicify CPM and incorporated into business processes, enabling previously installed products and sensors as well as new products to easily interoperate with each other."
The FieldServer and Devicify CPM solution is being exhibited at Devicify's booth N1943 at Dreamforce 2015 in San Francisco, CA from September 15th to September 18th 2015.
