Kozio Signs Massachusetts based Value Added Reseller Partner, Trilogic

LONGMONT, Colo., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kozio, Inc. (www.kozio.com), the leading provider of software solutions for embedded hardware design verification and production test, today announced a distribution agreement between Kozio and Trilogic, a Value Added Reseller (VAR) that provides solutions for the electronic design industry. As structural test access is becoming more limited, Kozio addresses the growing need in the embedded hardware test area to do more software based functional testing for both design verification and production test. Trilogic will market and sell Kozio's Verification and Test OS (VTOS™) solution, which will both complement and expand their current offering in the hardware design and data management areas. Trilogic has been a value added reseller and provider of services for more than 20 years and has been developing products that enhance design environments since 1996.

"The Kozio products nicely complement the Trilogic offering, which will bring immediate benefit to our common users," said Matt McConnell, CEO of Kozio, Inc. "Trilogic will offer Kozio's complete product line that spans the entire embedded hardware life cycle and will help fill in the hardware design chain gap with a user configurable Verification and Test OS. Customers will seamlessly be able to move VTOS to the production test floor where custom scripts can optimize their test time." 

Today's embedded hardware designs are becoming more complex with an expanding number of peripherals and fewer test access points. Kozio addresses these verification and test challenges with VTOS; a hardware test platform that provides functional tests, scripting and interactive debug without porting or compiling.

"Trilogic provides the value-added tools and services needed to develop a world class design automation tool flow, integrated to manufacturing systems and the enterprise," stated Brad Paul, CEO of Trilogic, Inc. "With the addition of Kozio's verification and production test solutions, we now can offer our customers a solution that will quickly verify new embedded designs and PCBs for design correctness and production readiness, replacing home-grown test executives or Linux as their test platform. The Kozio products fit well with our our existing customers as well extending our reach to new potential companies."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
