Ms. Madden has also held management positions at Technicolor, Legato Systems and Baan Company.

"Adchemy is experiencing rapid growth and will continue on this path for the foreseeable future as demand for its innovative paid search advertising solutions continues to escalate," said Ms. Madden. "Having an A team in place is critical for success in such a dynamic market, and I am excited to leverage the company's strong values, technology leadership and supportive culture to attract and retain the best talent possible."

With 15 years of engineering, product management and business leadership, Mr. Castro will be responsible for Adchemy's product strategy and roadmap.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
