Hima Mukkamala

Senior Vice President & General Manager, IoT Cloud Services


Hima Mukkamala, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Arm’s Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud Services Group, wants to establish its long-term sustainability in the ever-changing IoT space. 

Just a few months into his appointment at Arm, the United Kingdom-based semiconductor and software design company concluded two acquisitions – namely of Stream Technologies, a connectivity management firm, and Treasure Data, a data management firm, in June and August respectively.

Both investments will bolster Arm’s IoT solutions offerings, said Mukkamala in a phone interview. He noted that Stream and Treasure Data are being integrated with the company’s device management service to deliver an end-to-end IoT connectivity, device and data management solution – Arm’s Pelion IoT Platform.

The Pelion IoT Platform will enable companies to seamlessly and securely connect and manage IoT devices and data at any scale. It will do this through secure and consistent IoT device provisioning, management of a plethora of wireless connectivity standards, and organization of IoT and non-IoT data for business insights.

Leaders in the logistics industry share how they innovate to stay ahead

Getting your product delivered on time every time is paramount for businesses. After all, losing a package, wrong or late deliveries not only results in confusion, it also wastes time and effort in rectifying the error. It can also hurt a brand’s reputation if end customers are constantly kept waiting.

Logistics solutions providers know this and are working tirelessly to come up with novel ways to boost delivery times, while reducing the need for extra manpower and lowering costs. This year, TechInnovation is introducing a Logistics Innovation track, that delves into the challenges faced by the industry at its two-day technology-industry brokerage event. Held at Marina Bay Sands on 18 to 19 September, the event aims to push for new ideas and solutions.

Four leaders in the logistics industry will share how they innovate to stay ahead. Anthony Heng, Executive Director of Commonwealth Food Services; Bill Lee, Managing Partner of Azendian Solutions; Jonathan Tan, Managing Director of UnaBiz; and Prashant Dadlani, Founder and CEO of blu, will tackle pertinent topics such real-time tracking, big data, and changing consumer needs.
