Internet of Things
Things used to be merely things. A watch was a watch; a house was a house. Fleet trucks were just fleet trucks. But things evolved.
They became smarter, better, more efficient. They changed the way business is done, the way processes work. They began to tell us things. They began to tell each other things. We marched forward into an inevitable future where everything was a stronger, better form of itself. Where the headaches of supply chain and logistics and manufacturing were replaced with the power of things – communicating and optimizing and finding a better way. Through IoT, they became more than things; they became Things Evolved.
With our new eVolve IoT offering, Arrow Electronics is committed to guiding businesses and people to their future, better selves.
Cities Evolved is our urban future, and everyone’s invited. No longer are we limited by finite resources or overcrowded areas — Cities Evolved gives us the tools to optimize. To live harmoniously and connected. To stretch what we have so that more people can live better, together. A City Evolved is the promise that there is room, and resources, for all.
Industry Evolved is about better working conditions, better products, better processes and a better economy. It’s about a world where industry is optimized — where business operations are highly efficient and effective, a future where businesses, from factories to law firms, operate as their best selves at all times.
The retail experience can be stressful. Overwhelming. Inefficient. But it doesn’t have to be. Retail Evolved is a future where retail still exists — but better. Way better. It’s a future where an optimized retail experience makes life better for employers, employees and consumers. It’s a future that’s seamless, personalized and nimble. And it’s a future where retail isn’t extinct, it’s extraordinary.
Environmental Evolved is here to improve our world. By using data and technology to improve the efficiency by which we consume energy and heat and cool our buildings or power our machines – we reduce our carbon footprint and consume less resources. This helps us conserve our natural resources and improve our planet.
Medical Evolved is here to improve health and humanity. To make lives better. To use data to improve hearts and bodies. To help us take better care of ourselves and each other. To improve processes: biological, informational and otherwise. Medical Evolved is our healthy, bright future.
It’s no secret that farmers increasingly face enormous challenges. The industry must overcome increasing water shortages, limited availability of lands, difficult to manage costs – all while meeting the increasing consumption needs of a growing global population. Agriculture Evolved is addressing these issues and helping farmers to increase the quality, quantity, sustainability as well as cost effectiveness of agricultural production. They can even help livestock stay healthier and have better lives while maintaining a thriving farm business.
Transportation Evolved also has immeasurable opportunity to improve our lives. Arrow’s SAM car has already made Sam Schmidt the first physically challenged driver in the US to obtain an autonomous driver’s license. So, allowing those who before were unable to get places without the assistance of others, is one benefit – and, our roads and rails will be much safer. Predictive systems can help improve all means and modes of transportation, making our lives safer and actually more comfortable.
The eVolve Offering
Things Evolved is our perspective on the possibilities and future of IoT. Arrow eVolve is our Offering. It’s the way we connect customers to those possibilities.
Evolution is a process; a series of sequential steps. Crucially, Arrow has access to the technology behind every one of those steps. Our Blueprint is a complete and total realization of IoT.
Design includes digital design tools, hardware and connectivity components
Operate includes infrastructure platforms – public, private and hybrid cloud
Optimize includes apps, analytics, middleware and big data
Recover includes value recovery, break/fix, repair, warranty and disposition
Evolution is predicated upon connection and adaptation – not just between machines and machines, but people and machines as well. Our Tools make that easy.
Arrow Connect™ is our M2M tool. It bridges any device to any platform.
Arrow Insight™ is our M2P tool. It introduces human oversight, allowing customers to monitor, maintain and improve all of their connected technologies.
Every eVolve project is backed by the full heft of Arrow’s global resources and experience. From idea to impact, opportunity to execution, our industry-leading experts will be there to support customers every step of the way.
