IoT is a concept where devices, data, and places are interconnected with users and applications over the Internet, transforming how people interact, discover, and experience the world. This growing market is seen by analysts to generate between $1.2 trillion and $14.4 trillion. Seeing the myriad of opportunities for this market, LogMeIn Inc. and ARM Holdings plc have announced their collaboration to simplify and accelerate the commercial development of IoT.

"The Internet of Things signifies the next major wave of the Internet, one that we believe could even eclipse both the web and mobile waves combined, and presents a massive opportunity for businesses that want to create a new generation of compelling connected products. In order to make this happen, they need a simple, affordable way to experiment and innovate through a platform that will enable them to seamlessly move from prototype to commercial product, and then scale as demand grows," said Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn.

As part of the firms' team up, they will be working on the development of LogMeIn's Xively Jumpstart Kit, a rapid prototyping-to-production bundle that significantly reduces the cost, complexity and learning curve required to bring IoT-based connected products and solutions to market.

"ARM is increasing opportunities for innovation across the Internet of Things with easy-to-use platforms and standards that accelerate the creation of low-power, end-to-end solutions," said John Cornish, executive vice president and general manager, system design division, ARM. "LogMeIn's Xively Jumpstart Kit harnesses ARM mbed to support the development of new IoT products. We are pleased that LogMeIn shares our vision for an increasingly interconnected, innovative and energy efficient world," Cornish added.

LogMeIn's Xively Jumpstart Kit combines ARM mbed, a platform for rapidly building connected devices using ARM-based microcontrollers, with Xively's cloud platform, making the IoT a practical reality for anyone wanting to build Internet-connected devices and associated cloud-based applications, from small entrepreneurs to established Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). With ARM mbed for product development, combined with Xively Cloud Services, developers and businesses can focus on their own innovations rather than on infrastructure and platforms. This results in accelerated time-to-market, as developers can rapidly progress from prototyping to volume deployment.

The announcement of the LogMeIn-ARM partnership coincided with LogMeIn's release of its Xively Cloud Services, a new commercial IoT Public Cloud.
