August 28, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
42Gears Mobility Systems has added support for Linux-based Raspberry Pi to its EMM platform, enabling enterprises to be able to manage IoT deployments that include sensors and small handheld devices connected to Rasp Pi Gateway.

EMM platforms need to constantly evolve to incorporate support for newer devices and platforms. This is a key addition to the operating systems supported by 42Gears, as Raspberry Pi gateway is now being widely used by businesses. The 42Gears EMM platform, SureMDM helps to remotely manage deployed IoT devices controlled by Raspberry Pi and perform functions such as creating directories on the devices, moving and transferring files between directories.

Prakash Gupta, CTO, 42Gears said, "The IoT ecosystem is growing rapidly and can contain a huge number of connected devices used for various purposes. Raspberry Pi devices are being utilized extensively in various industry verticals such as logistics, transport, energy management, and advertising. SureMDM offers a viable solution for all these businesses that need to manage sensors and small handheld devices. SureMDM can be beneficial to organizations in their Data Mining efforts. Data gathered in SureMDM through these IoT devices can be used in healthcare monitoring, environmental sensing, machine health monitoring and has many other applications."

Currently SureMDM supports Ubuntu Mate, Snappy Ubuntu Core and Raspbian on Raspberry Pi. Support for Windows 10 IoT core is under development and will be available soon.

SureMDM supports all the major platforms such as Android, iOS, MacOS and Windows.
