Australian IIoT integration innovator Reekoh scaling with global industrial market leader AVEVA

 

January 21, 2021  |  By Staff Writer

Australian integration platform Reekoh has forged an agreement with AVEVA, one of the world’s biggest engineering and industrial software companies, which will see components of Reekoh’s product suite bundled and resold through AVEVA’s global distribution and partner ecosystem, reaching a customer base of 16,000 large-scale industrial organisations.

 

The agreement is a coup for the fast-growing Brisbane based iPaaS company, delivering a mature channel as it expands on the global stage.

Digital transformation accelerated in 2020 across sectors such as oil & gas, manufacturing and food & beverage, driven partially by the disruption and re-engineering imposed by the global COVID-19 pandemic. AVEVA’s cloud and AI product roadmap is growing exponentially with these systems relying heavily on integration between traditional OT systems, customer business and IT systems, and the cloud.

Reekoh’s suite of tools and services are laser-focused on this integration layer and in recent months Reekoh proved the value and capability of its product and the expertise of the team by quickly delivering a number of integrations for key AVEVA products and solutions, helping to accelerate their readiness for going to market.

Already, Reekoh has been positioned directly with AVEVA customers in manufacturing, food and beverage, resources and facilities infrastructure (e.g. cities, data centres) and is working closely with some of AVEVA’s largest distributors in France, Germany, UK and North America on opportunities in their channel. These opportunities are commonly requiring scalable integration of existing operational technologies and systems with cloud services and business applications, some of which are part of the AVEVA product portfolio.

For example, AVEVA’s Unified Operations Centre solution for global Data Centre customers required IT integration that could be easily developed and deployed with the AVEVA technology stack. In a matter of weeks, Reekoh supported integration to Work Order and Data Centre Management systems such as IBM Maximo, hyperscale cloud services and other IT business systems, all with AVEVA’s underlying asset performance management and monitoring/control portfolio.

The Reekoh Accelerate integration platform, combining scalable hybrid infrastructure and a large library of pre-built integration plugins together with an exciting product roadmap including support for Edge-based data integration and capability, is exactly what industrial customers and channel partners have been looking for to enable the next wave of digital transformation.

Under the reseller agreement, Reekoh will continue to have their own identity and presence on the AVEVA platform. Reekoh is one of only a small number of external companies resold in this way through AVEVA and is the first Australian company to reach this milestone.

Reekoh CEO and co-founder Dale Rankine said, “It’s very satisfying to have reached this point where our product and value proposition for the industrial market has been validated so strongly by a global market leader like AVEVA. The global IoT Middleware market is set grow to USD $25B by 2025, with Manufacturing being the largest growing segment and APAC the growth region”.

“What we are bringing to market with AVEVA is a world-leading capability that can truly make OT/IT interoperability and integration practical and achievable for the whole industrial enterprise market”.

Reekoh has created an AVEVA Partnership Resource Center to highlight all relevant products and resources to the AVEVA ecosystem, and are also a sponsor of the upcoming AVEVA World Digital online event.

Reekoh is building on recent successes with customers such as Tassal, who are adopting greater IoT and cloud technologies in their seafood farming and production operations, as well as local Australian councils such as City of Paramatta and Lake Macquarie who recently extended their use of the Reekoh platform for their various Smart City initiatives.
