Axeda Corporation announces the Axeda® Platform is now available to developers through its new Axeda Developer Connection site: – the most comprehensive resource for developing and deploying connected product applications. Axeda is the leading cloud platform and applications company for connected products.

Connected products such as e-readers, security devices, utility meters, and patient health monitors are already driving new business models and significant revenue streams across a variety of industries. Harbor Research predicts that shipments of these so called “intelligent devices” will grow to 430 million in 2013 with total device revenues exceeding $12 billion.

The Axeda Developer Connection allows companies to quickly take advantage of these market opportunities. It teaches developers how to build M2M applications by accessing technical articles, sample applications, tutorials, product documentation, community forums, videos, partner information and free, 60-day Axeda Platform access.

“The Axeda Developer Connection is one of the most complete developer sites in the connected device segment,” said Geoff Martin, manager, service delivery, Sprint Emerging Solutions Group. “Significant time and thought went into the layout and resources available to both new and experienced developers in the space.”

To date, connected product applications have been difficult to build due to technical complexity and prohibitive start-up costs. Axeda now makes it easy to get started by providing its enterprise-class platform as a free trial, allowing developers to focus on applications, not the enabling technology.

“We work with many different products to build M2M solutions, and are very impressed by the depth of content in the Axeda Developer Connection site,” said Nathan George, director of technology, Walsh Wireless. “The site makes it easy for our technical team to quickly get up- to-speed on the Axeda Platform and immediately start building solutions.”

Over 150 major organizations, including Abbott, EMC, Diebold, and NetApp rely on the Axeda Platform today. A cloud-based solution, it reduces complexity and costs and provides key capabilities such as: condition monitoring, content management, location-based services, business rules, secure communication, and enterprise system integration.
