Axeda Announces Support of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation

Portion of Proceeds from Connexion 2014 Earmarked to Provide Financial and Emotional Relief for Families and Patients Battling Cancer

FOXBORO, Mass., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Axeda Corporation, the leading cloud-based service and software for connecting, building and managing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced its support of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF), a Massachusetts-based nonprofit 5019(c)(3) organization dedicated to alleviating cancer's financial and emotional burdens on patients, as well as funding critical pediatric brain cancer research.  Founded by former New England Patriots offensive guard Joe Andruzzi and his wife Jen, the Foundation grew out of Mr. Andruzzi's own successful cancer battle and the couple's ongoing work with young cancer patients.  To date, more than 1,000 patients and families have been assisted by JAF and more than $500,000 has been raised by the Foundation in support of Dr. Mark Kieran's pediatric brain cancer research at Boston Children's Hospital.

Axeda will hold its annual customer and IoT industry conference, Connexion, in Boston's Innovation District on May 5-8, 2014, and a portion of all Connexion event proceeds will be donated to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation.  Joe Andruzzi will also join the Connexion keynote speaker lineup which includes AT&T, GE, Intel, Salesforce and Wipro.   

Hundreds of companies, including eight of the top 10 medical device manufacturers in the world, use Axeda's products and services to turn machine data into useful information, build and run innovative IoT applications and optimize business processes by integrating machine data with business systems.  Leaders in medical device manufacturing are pushing for transformation within their delivery models, and with IoT programs they are able to strategically consider how data from medical devices can impact positive outcomes by dramatically improving quality, cost effectiveness and efficiency of care.  By harnessing machine data, medical device manufacturers are able to increase value to hospitals and care to patients by creating actionable insight, improved outcomes and reduced time to value.

"On behalf of all the employees at Axeda, I am very pleased to announce our support of the Joe Andruzzi Foundation and their work helping patients and families tackling cancer, and their funding of clinical research," said Todd DeSisto, Axeda CEO. "Joe exemplifies the spirit of giving, and is a Boston champion both on-and-off the field.  It is very fitting that a portion of the funds from our customer event are applied to his Foundation and the work they do to support families in need, and the rapidly evolving area of cancer research and treatment."  

"The Joe Andruzzi Foundation's mission is centered on providing upbeat positivity, and one such way to carry this forward is through philanthropy, which is major force to improve, touch and empower patients and families facing cancer, one of the biggest challenges of their lives," said Joe Andruzzi, Founder of JAF.  "We share Axeda's passion to improve the future of patient care and to make a difference, and I look forward to joining Connexion 2014 and meeting with leaders in healthcare who are transforming their delivery models with connected medical device programs to drive forward change."

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
