MachineShop Named One of the 10 Most Disruptive Startups in Boston by the Boston Business Journal

Internet of Services Company Recognized as "Tech Game Changer" to Revolutionize the Way Enterprises Manage the Internet of Things

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- MachineShop today announced it has been named one of the "10 Most Disruptive Startups" in Boston by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ). Emerging from stealth mode in March, MachineShop delivers the power of the Internet of Services™ by providing new ways to engage with data sources including Internet connected systems, devices and applications resulting from the convergence of operations and information technology.

Analysts predict that by 2020, there will be 50 billion wirelessly connected devices across the world and currently, each of the devices uses a different protocol to communicate with an application. MachineShop's solution is to standardize and simplify those various languages into APIs, which are commonly used by developers to build applications.

"We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the top tech disruptors in the region," said Michael Campbell, president and CEO, MachineShop. "It's particularly gratifying that a leading business publication like the Boston Business Journal understands the broader business and technology challenges faced by the enterprise and that MachineShop is not only at the forefront of addressing that problem but its solution is, indeed, a game changer."

MachineShop provides next-generation middleware allowing organizations to create connected business solutions from any combination of devices and systems. In place of platforms, MachineShop offers standard, discrete, purpose-built services for data aggregation, data normalization, data enrichment, data storage, business logic, device management, and advanced service management -- all exposed as RESTful APIs. MachineShop services are available through Services Exchanges, providing developers and organizations a simple way to build new and innovative applications, integrate systems and share information.

The Boston Business Journal reviewed hundreds of investor-funded tech startups in Massachusetts and narrowed down the list to the most promising companies stating that MachineShop "has the potential to transform the way large companies use and deploy wirelessly connected devices."
