Wind River Extends its Leadership in Device Software Optimization
Tel-Aviv, Feb 23 2004 - Wind River Systems [NASDAQ: WIND], the global leader in device software optimization (DSO), today significantly expanded its Platform and extended its leadership in device software optimization. DSO is the industry strategy that (a) minimizes the inefficiencies and complexities in the device software development process, (b) maximizes the reliability, security, and interoperability of devices and (c) accelerates the standardization of device development, release and enhancement across multiple environments.
By standardizing on a Wind River Platform — a tightly integrated set of operating systems, development tools and industry-specific middleware with services — companies benefit from device software optimization, gaining the ability to develop and run device software faster, better, less expensively and more reliably.
"A new chapter for Wind River begins today with our partnership with Red Hat and with significant technological upgrades of core Wind River technology, VxWorks and Wind Power IDE," said Ken Klein, chairman, chief executive and president of Wind River. "Wind River is committed to enabling device software optimization by providing our customers with Wind River Platforms based on industry standards — VxWorks and Linux.”
In support of DSO, Wind River’s strategic announcements include:
"Linux is an undeniable force in IT today, and Wind River has taken all the right steps toward embracing it, "said Ross Mauri, General Manager, e-business on demand, IBM. "As embedded Linux matures, the realm of possibilities for embedded operating systems will only grow, and Wind River has put itself into a strong position to be able to take advantage of the growth opportunity."
