Enterprise software product developer adds top designers of Internet of Things (IoT) applications

Custom software developer Applied Visions, Inc. has acquired Software Design Solutions, a software development company based in the Pittsburgh area that specializes in embedded systems and Internet of Things applications.

Applied Visions develops custom commercial applications for its clients that run in the cloud, on mobile devices, and in desktop environments. The company has become increasingly involved in “Internet of Things” (IoT) applications over the last few years. Software Design Solutions specializes in developing applications for the IoT environment.

“There is a lot of overlap between what the two companies do, which will help our clients,” says Frank Zinghini, CEO of Applied Visions. “Ed Kuzemchak, CEO of Software Design Solutions, and his team of engineers focus on applications for embedded devices and sensors, which interact with other applications in the cloud, on desktops, or on mobile devices. Our broad experience in application development meshes well with SDS’s experience in embedded systems, sensors, and communications. Our combined capabilities will provide our customers with end-to-end enterprise, embedded, and IoT solutions.”

The “Internet of Things” is just that – physical “things” connected to the Internet, which can communicate with each other and with centralized monitoring systems. Quite often an enterprise – such as a local power company – uses remote sensors to gather information that will help them monitor, maintain, and adjust their overall network of resources. Software Design Solutions specializes in creating applications running at the edge of this network, while Applied Visions specializes in creating the centralized applications that use that edge data to drive the business, or incorporate the information gathered into larger corporate systems.

“This acquisition allows us to focus on what we do best: develop embedded and IoT applications,” says Ed Kuzemchak, CEO of Software Design Solutions. “Applied Visions has proven itself to be a leader in the industry and brings marketing and business development power to our company that will enable us to grow even faster. Modern embedded applications often require an enterprise-level or cloud-based backend for data collection and management. The combination of Applied Visions and Software Design Solutions provides our customers with a single source for an end-to-end IoT solution.”

Applied Visions (http://www.avi.com) was founded in 1987. The company builds custom applications that meet the revenue and usability goals of their clients, are visually exceptional, and are exceptionally usable. The company has spun off two business areas: its Secure Decisions division conducts cyber security research for the government, and is a leader in visualization for national security applications; and CodeDx, Inc. sells a software vulnerability management system that that enables software developers, testers, and security analysts to find and manage vulnerabilities in software.

Software Design Solutions (http://www.softwaredesignsolutions.com) was founded in 2003. The company offers development services for embedded systems, workstation applications, user interface design, and software process improvement. The company has developed applications for a variety of industries including medical, industrial automation and control, audio and image signal processing, transportation, networking, defense, security, and consumer devices.
