7 December 2015- The first industrial revolution witnessed exordium of machines supplementing human labor. But as technology advanced, it engendered a whole incipient era of perspicacious technologies introducing the second industrial revolution with Cloud and IoT. While it created huge opportunities for new players and technologies to emerge, it also expedited the industrial automation process through an amalgamation of smart technologies advancing the subsisting automation in the industries.
With the advances came challenges to acclimate to the technologies that were fairly incipient. With years of expertise in industrial networking, Bhagath Singh Karunakaran with Kamalakannan Govindarajulu and Mahalingam Ramasamy incorporated Kalycito in 2007 to create a difference in the Industrial Communication and Industrial IoT space. Headquartered in Coimbatore, Kalycito operates in two business verticals – embedded design services and platform based devices and services.
