Samsung Electronics announced Thursday a significant momentum for the Samsung Artik IoT platform.
The company announced that the Samsung Artik platform is commercially available – a big step forward in bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) to everyday life.
Samsung Artik development kits can be ordered from Samsung’s channel partner Digi-Key Electronics starting February 22.
The company also introduced a new Certified Artik Partner Program (CAPP) to make partner services and platforms readily available to help accelerate the development and time-to-market for IoT projects.

Samsung’s new Certified Artik Partner Program is designed to help developers and companies jump start their development and take their ideas to market faster by working with carefully selected professional service providers and design houses.
Whether customers need tailored hardware or help in defining a new system from scratch, CAPP partners can help make the design and deployment of IoT systems an effortless experience, the company suggests.
adds: Internet of Things (a.k.a. Internet of Everything) is an ambitious future computing concept. It aims to connect all objects and even people in the world with Internet. All of them will have unique identifiers that could be monitored with the help of computers.
It’s estimated that over 30 billion objects will be connected wirelessly with Internet of Things by the year 2020. However, it’s not yet clear how this concept will help businesses or people at large. Top tech companies in the world are working to find applications around Internet of Things.
There is an opportunity to join the list of leading partners already working with Samsung to deliver more options to customers that want to develop IoT applications using the Samsung Artik platform.
The open Samsung Artik platform provides all the essential hardware and software building blocks to allow faster, simpler development of new enterprise, industrial and consumer applications.
This allows developers to focus on their areas of expertise in designing new applications and services rather than having to build entire systems from the ground up, enabling a faster time-to-market.
