Eurotech CEO: Eclipse Kura Will be Major Influencer in IoT

By

When it comes to tech and new product introduction, big bang isn’t a theory, it’s reality.

That was the word from Eurotech CEO Larry Wall in his keynote address yesterday at the IoT Evolution Expo in Las Vegas.

Market adoption of new models like those proffered by Amazon and Uber is happening rapidly, he said, and that’s forcing other businesses to get more things right earlier. That said, organizations are pushing to expedite the timeline between innovation and revenue, he added.

That’s driving the demand for more agile, open source, secure, and standard solutions and technologies, he indicated. All of the above contributed to Eurotech’s decision to become a founding member of the IoT Working Group within Eclipse.

The Eclipse Foundation is a place where people collaborate to deliver exemplary, extensible tools, frameworks and runtime components, according to the organization’s website. What is now the Eclipse IoT Working Group (formerly the M2M Working Group) aims to define an open development environment and key runtimes for IoT solutions that will enable open solutions.

Eurotech contributed its Everyware Software Framework—a Java OSGi software framework for M2M multiservice gateways, smart devices and IoT applications—to the Kura project within Eclipse, Hilary Tomasson, Eurotech’s vice president of marketing, explained in an interview with IoT Evolution World yesterday. The idea behind that is to ensure that when customers are ready to move on IoT deployments, the solutions—or at least skunkworks efforts that they can use as a jumping off point—will be there.

Wall said he believes Eclipse Kura will be one of the biggest influencers in how the IoT develops moving forward.

As noted by Carl Ford in the first quarter 2015 issue of IoT Evolution magazine, Eclipse, the Kura and Mihini frameworks address the transport layer associated with gateways and transmission.

“The focus on services starts with the smart home and smart grid using Eclipse Scada,” Ford wrote. “From the protocol standpoint it is supporting MQTT, CoAp, OMA and ETSI M2M. In the end of course, it will deliver a development environment.

“The framework is going to help developers get to market more rapidly with a stable, replicable solution,” Ford continued. “One thing that I constantly harp about on the value of open source is the reduction of cost on quality assurance that comes from using a common framework.”
