No one company can create everything, yet the lack of a particular capability can put a company at a significant disadvantage, or strand its precious R&D and product investment. But with a robust partner ecosystem a company can focus its resources, differentiate its products, and compete more effectively. A broad and vibrant ecosystem is also important to customers, who need assurance that their investment will have continued support and innovation across the entire value chain.
Partnerships are particularly critical in the embedded software business—but also particularly difficult, given the fragmentation in our industry. After 30 years in the business, Wind River® understands these issues and has built an ecosystem of both hardware and software partners that is unparalleled in the industry.
As our industry evolves, we work with partners and customers to recognize and realize the potential opportunities inherent in changing business models. In this context, we ask and encourage you to work with us as a strong contributor in our ecosystem.
Our customers develop and deploy smart, connected devices with stringent time-to-market requirements. Wind River has established strategic relationships with leading hardware component providers covering all major markets and device components, including semiconductors, commercial boards, and related peripherals, to assure software interoperability and pre-integration. These partnerships allow development teams to better leverage commercial components to accelerate their time-to-market while mitigating risk. As a result, our customers can devote more resources to the differentiated value of their products.
