Our Story

The Internet of Things has emerged as today’s technology megatrend, promising to reinvent the way people live, work and play. From exciting smart consumer gadgets to entirely new cyber-physical manufacturing systems, innovators are finding ways to reshape consumer behavior and redefine competitive business advantage. Industry experts envision one trillion devices will be connected by 2035.

If that’s the case, we have a whole lot of work to do.

Some things in business don’t change. Success still centers around knowing your customer, understanding the problem you’re solving and delivering a compelling experience with a strong ROI. However, it can be daunting for innovators to get their arms around all the different technology pieces and parts required to create a complete IoT solution. There are no one-size-fits-all answers and far too many standards to choose from. IoT innovators must be technically “multi-lingual” -- conversant across unrelated techspeak of embedded electronics, sensors, wireless data options, smartphone apps, middleware and cloud computing. It’s far too easy to get bogged down in the technology stack.

That’s where Atmosphere comes in.

First released in 2015 and used by thousands of innovators, Atmosphere offers IoT solution builders the fastest and simplest way to build, connect, and manage complete embedded-to-cloud systems. Atmosphere invites you to enter the fast lane for creating new IoT data and getting it into mobile and cloud applications -- while offering you the flexibility and control to choose the best technology “lanes” for your project.

Begin tinkering with Atmosphere IoT Studio, our free drag-and-drop online IDE, to build all your device firmware, mobile apps and cloud dashboards with ease. Industry-leading global corporations with vast engineering customer bases have chosen to white label the Atmosphere IoT Studio in order to make it available directly to their registered fan bases.

We also work directly with OEMs and solutions integrators to stand up their own cloud-managed IoT applications across a range of vertical industries and use cases. Serving as your hub for managing devices, data, users and applications, Atmosphere IoT Central allows to start small and scale to large IoT deployments. You can bring your own device and start with small-scale commercial pilots without breaking your budget. And graduate to scaled, secure, and white labeled IoT applications tailored to your needs.

To learn how we do it all, go here or simply try it yourself for free.
