LONDON, Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Industrial IoT software leader, Temboo, has been awarded the 2018 IET Innovation Award for Manufacturing Technology from the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
The Awards celebrate the most pioneering engineering and technology innovations across 14 sectors, from energy and sustainability to transport and healthcare.
Chosen from over 350 original entries from all over the world, Temboo was judged the winner of the Manufacturing Technology award in recognition of their code-generation software platform.
Temboo helps manufacturers of all sizes and industries – food manufacturing, white goods, packaging, automotive, aerospace, and more – bridge the gap between the physical and the digital with the Internet of Things. Temboo's technology for machine-generating code empowers people who are not traditional software or hardware engineers to quickly connect physical objects and spaces to the internet, to gain powerful insights into how their world is really working, and to gain new technological skills for their jobs.
"IoT represents unprecedented opportunities in cutting costs, reducing energy consumption, improving efficiency and more," said Trisala Chandaria, Temboo President and Co-Founder. "But building software systems for IoT is more challenging than usual. Temboo is the first of its kind: a 'no code' solution aimed at the burgeoning new collar workforce. Being recognized by an organization as prestigious as the IET is encouragement for us to keep moving forward with our company mission, empowering as many kinds of people and organizations as possible to create IoT systems."
Ms. Chandaria received the award at a prestigious awards dinner and ceremony held in London on Nov. 14 hosted by comedy actor and writer Sally Phillips.
IET President Mike Carr OBE, said: "Our Innovation Awards put the achievements of the most outstanding engineering and technology inventors around the world into the spotlight and play a critical role in helping them advance their vital work.
"Innovation is an essential foundation for the growth of the global economy and for raising the standard of living in all communities. It is a key differentiator that makes companies and projects successful and, in keeping with the IET's mission to inspire excellence in engineering and technology, we are immensely proud to recognise, celebrate and show our support for these exceptional achievements."

It is also the most interdisciplinary – to reflect the increasingly diverse nature of engineering in the 21st century. Energy, transport, manufacturing, information and communications, and the built environment: the IET covers them all. The IET is working to engineer a better world by inspiring, informing and influencing our members, engineers and technicians, and all those who are touched by, or touch, the work of engineers. We want to build the profile of engineering and change outdated perceptions about engineering in order to tackle the skills gap. This includes encouraging more women to become engineers and growing the number of engineering apprentices. For more information, visit www.theiet.org
About Temboo: Temboo's mission is to empower more people and organizations to build their own software for physical and digital systems, using machine-generated code to expand who can participate in software development. In 2018, Temboo released Kosmos, the first end-to-end Software-as-a-Service for building complete Industrial Internet of Things systems. Kosmos enables businesses to more easily implement internet-connected sensors, actuators, and machinery in their products, processes, and facilities to collect data, generate insights via Machine Learning and advanced analytics, implement predictive maintenance, and automate workflows.
