The cloud has opened new opportunities to deliver on this vision as a manufacturing ecosystem that challenges the status quo,” said Naveen Poonian, CEO at iBase-t. “With this innovation comes the possibility for our customers to accelerate their digital transformation journey, which we believe contributed to our placement in this year’s Magic Quadrant.”
