RTI Named Most Influential Industrial Internet of Things Company
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – July 17, 2014—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things communications platform company, today announced that they were named “The Most Influential Industrial Internet of Things Company” in an independent market study conducted by Appinions and published in Forbes. Companies and fellow Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) members rounded out the most influential list, including Google, Cisco and GE.
RTI is the leading provider of the core technology – DDS – the most popular physical-to-digital link in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. DDS, the Data Distribution Service, is a key technology standard that is managed by the Object Management Group (OMG), who also manages the IIC. Many Fortune 500 customers use the RTI DDS implementation across several industries, including medical, energy, aviation and automotive. Additionally, RTI recently announced Connext™ DDS Secure, the first secure messaging software for the IIoT, providing secure machine-to-machine interoperability for critical systems.
According to the published study, “Appinions measures influence as it is demonstrated in public news, articles, discussions and social media. Appinions reviews full-text from online, offline, and social sources and calculates individual influence scores for each person or company who shared an opinion on a specific topic which generated a meaningful reaction.” For this report over 40,000 opinions and over 100 million documents were reviewed.
“The intelligent systems that make up the Industrial Internet of Things need a common architecture to connect all of the devices, machines, people, processes and data,” said Stan Schneider, CEO of RTI. “RTI is working with the OMG and IIC to develop this architecture. RTI Connext DDS provides the communications platform that meets the performance, reliability, scalability and security requirements for the IIoT. Recognition as the ‘most influential’ company in the industry is further support for our solution and the fact that we’re continuing to help our customers build the systems that are changing our world.”
