DGAP-News: Kontron AG / Key word(s): Miscellaneous Kontron to add software and services to hardware range 19.05.2015 / 16:20 --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Management lays out plans to capture IoT megatrend at its capital markets day * New strategy will combine existing hardware with new middleware offering * Customers to be offered integrated product and services packages Augsburg, 19 May 2015 - Kontron AG, a leading global provider of Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), today held a capital markets event at its new Technology Campus in Augsburg. CEO Rolf Schwirz, CFO Michael Boy and CTO Jens Wiegand presented the company's new strategy and future roadmap to capture the enormous growth potential of the Internet-of-Things megatrend. The global move to connect today's stand-alone devices via the internet will offer very attractive growth and profitability potential to well positioned technology providers such as Kontron AG. Harbor Research, an internationally recognized research, technology and business development consulting firm, estimates that the embedded middleware software market alone will grow by about 30% annually and offer a revenue potential of more than $20bn by 2017, in addition to the nearly $10bn/year ECT market Kontron is already active in. "While we continue to have to work hard to complete our remaining internal cost reduction and efficiency initiatives, we have now implemented more than 80% of them", says Rolf Schwirz. "This has given us enough strategic freedom to develop a precise roadmap for the coming years. The middleware software space we are now moving into holds great revenue potential and attractive margins. We are ready to take this important strategic step forward." To the extent that devices are interconnected, data transmission speed, data security and data analytics become critical performance requirements hardware and software solutions have to meet. As one of only two global full-line suppliers in the ECT space and a provider of high-quality products that guarantee reliability, safety, resilience and longevity, Kontron is positioned right at the center of this global megatrend. Its move into the software space will strengthen this strategic position further.
