Paris, 1 August 2017 – Arrow Electronics announces the launch of its “Things Evolved: IoT Innovator Program” in the EMEA region, a new initiative to develop its Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem and to facilitate channel partners’ path into IoT markets.

Arrow is uniquely positioned in the IoT markets, with a wide portfolio addressing every layer of an IoT solution stack, ranging from electronic components to IT solutions. Through the launch of the Innovator Program, Arrow will enable the channel community and IoT solution providers to benefit from its IoT technology reach and skills, as well as from all other services delivered by Arrow such as remote management and monitoring, support, design, integration, training, marketing and financial solutions.
