Amazon.com is expanding its efforts in the Internet of Things market, purchasing Denver-based startup 2lemetry in a deal of undisclosed size. The acquisition was first reported by TechCrunch, which notes that 2lemetry’s platform analyzes data from connected devices.
“Our existing service has not changed, and with Amazon we will offer our same customer support,” 2lemetry wrote on its Web site in a FAQ about the acquisition. “We still have the same name and branding as before.”
2lemetry raised $4 million earlier this year, including funding from Salesforce Ventures. That brought total funding to $9 million.
“Enterprise companies struggle with the noise generated from massive amounts of IoT data. We boil all that data down to manageable insights, and with 2lemetry Integrate, we bring that intelligence into Salesforce, so customers can quickly and effectively act on that data,” said Kyle Roche, CEO and Co-Founder of 2lemetry, at the time of the funding. “Because we seamlessly integrate with Salesforce, companies can easily act upon the information in an environment that they’re already used to.”
It’s unclear how Amazon plans to use the 2lemetry technology, which is described as a way to use data from connected devices to improve the efficiency of operations and accelerate product development.
