BOSTON, July 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn, Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) today announced that it is a Platinum sponsor of Salesforce1 World Tour events in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Dallas and Anaheim. LogMeIn will discuss how enterprises can leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) to transform business, streamline operations, boost revenue and strengthen customer relationships, and showcase real-world examples of connected companies using LogMeIn's Xively IoT platform and Salesforce1 Platform.
"We believe that, for the IoT to truly revolutionize a business, it must touch everything from sales, service and marketing, to operations, finance and product development. That's a very tall order, but one that we believe is completely doable by integrating the physical world with key business systems and customer-facing apps," said Chad Jones, VP of Internet of Things Strategy for LogMeIn. "We're excited to show Salesforce1 World Tour attendees examples of real companies that are transforming themselves by taking a business-first approach to their IoT initiatives."
LogMeIn will present, "The 7 Steps to Real-World Business Transformation on the Internet of Things" featuring case studies including New England Biolabs, at select Salesforce1 World Tour events. The company, which is a Platinum sponsor of four Salesforce1 World Tour events, has a booth showcasing Xively-based IoT implementations, including an industrial equipment control demo controlled with Google Glass.
The Xively IoT platform, built on LogMeIn's Gravity infrastructure— which supports millions of secure connections between people, devices and data across the globe — is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) designed to help companies accelerate IoT initiatives. Xively includes a highly-efficient data communications backbone, trust and permissioning engine, and data and directory service, all of which are purpose-built for the IoT.
