Electronic components distributor Avnet is launching a new partner programme at CES 2020 to drive adoption of the internet of things (IoT). 

The IoT Partner Programme has been designed to give developers a secure and cost-effective place to build internet of things (IoT) solutions. They can connect devices that address the software and hardware needs of IoT solutions to Avnet’s IoTConnect platform which is powered by Microsoft’s Azure IoT Suite. 

The firm will also expand its offering to include a marketplace, where developers can write and sell IoT applications. Through these moves, Avnet aims to simplify IoT and enable businesses to quickly deploy solutions. 

“IoT is complex, with unique hardware, software and security requirements at every stage of the development cycle,” said Pete Bartolotta, president of business transformation at Avnet. “With our Partner Program and the upcoming Marketplace, we are putting proven IoT solutions in the hands of partners and systems integrators so they can scale their own businesses and accelerate the adoption of IoT.”
