Amadeus Consulting, a custom software development firm, shared its offering of complex back-end application development for the Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace. Additionally, the company announced that Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder, is speaking at ThingsExpo 2016 about wearables and the human body connection, and how Amadeus helps enable the next generation of enterprise-scale applications for IoT.  Calkins was recently named a gold winner of the 2016 CEO World Awards, and spoke at Augmented World Expo last week about the use of wearables and the next generation of health tracking applications. Calkins will be speaking on Thursday, June 9 at 3:40 p.m. ET.

For more than 20 years, Amadeus Consulting has constructed and deployed custom software solutions across a broad range of industries and markets. As IoT gains momentum, mobile applications will need to grow in both complexity and scale. The apps of today, in many cases, are little more than data entry or screen-sharing deployments, but have the computing power to handle many different kinds of functionalities. The next generation of mobile apps incorporates geo-location, predictive analytics and connectivity to sensors for enterprise-scale data collection. In order to harness the power of these next-gen apps, companies are facing back-end system developments that are much more complicated and far-reaching than ever before. As a result, traditional “application development” companies must adapt to these needs by supplying more diverse development skill sets and a sophisticated understanding of project planning.

“Gone are the days where being a good mobile developer or mobile development shop and building good mobile apps is enough,” said John Basso, CTO and co-founder of Amadeus. “It’s a whole other world to get Internet of Things to work or to get low-energy Bluetooth to work, and to take into account the complexity of these sensor systems. These days, you need to have back-end and high performance knowledge.”
