Avnet Expands IoT Capabilities With Acquisition of Witekio

IoT Capabilities : Avnet signed an agreement to acquire Witekio – the deal is supposed to be closed before the end of 2019. The privately held company Witekio specializes in software and embedded systems that help overcome technical challenges and complexity in the development of IoT-solutions.

This acquisition expands Avnet’s end-to-end IoT strategy, since it adds more IoT capabilities and expertise in embedded software, edge computing and security, specifically from hardware to the cloud.

The combination of Witekio’s embedded software and design expertise with Avnet’s already robust technology ecosystem further strengthens our overall solutions strategy, which is unparalleled in the market today,

said Pete Bartolotta, president of business transformation, Avnet.

With Witekio’s expertise, we can more rapidly deliver a complete hardware, software, cloud and middleware solution that delivers insights based on the customer’s specific business case.

Avnet already acquired Softweb Solutions in December 2018. Witekio develops software for every layer from devices to the cloud, including connected hardware, device architectures and applications. This complements Softweb’s offerings of cloud-based software to connect, manage and analyze data.
Witekio (formerly known as Adeneo Embedded) is a global company with approximately 120 employees in France, the United States, United Kingdom and Germany. The Witekio team is comprised of business transformation consultants, UX-designers, system architects and software experts who have worked with many Fortune 500 companies across vertical markets including medical and healthcare, automotive and navigation, handheld and mobility, industrial and energy, and smart connected objects.

We’re aligned with Avnet in our approach to IoT solutions as well as our company cultures. We completely embrace Avnet’s strategy to build vertical and scalable platforms that can quicken time to market and reduce financial investment while still offering a high level of customization to all players that want to tackle IoT opportunities,

said Yannick Chammings, founder, Witekio.

We’re excited to become part of Avnet and further accelerate IoT adoption.
