We are thrilled to introduce a new start-up to our co-working space in Ghent. DYAMAND bridges between the IoT/digital equipment and cloud digital infrastructure enabling companies to digitize their products, processes and operations. Based on a plug & play approach, DYAMAND started as a research support infrastructure for major projects in Belgium and now is transforming to a global SaaS infrastructure platform that aims to enable digital information in a simple and scalable way.

Connecting your “things”

In the last decades, the world has made significant technological advances. When we talk about the use of digital technology, it all started with the introduction of the PC, making it possible for the general public to use computing power, that was previously reserved for big research centres, in the comfort of their own home. After the introduction of the Internet, people could get connected to exchange information all around the world. Gradually this evolved into a world in which nearly every human being is continuously connected with the rest of the world using a device that is significantly smaller and more powerful than PCs originally were.

A similar evolution has been happening in the world of devices. Traditionally referred to as IoT, it has a significant impact on multiple application domains, ranging from home automation over eHealth, industry 4.0 and many more to smart cities. What all of these application domains have in common is that they face similar problems when bringing new applications to the market. Integration of devices is complex since they not only differ in what they enable, the way an application needs to connect to each device is potentially different, how devices model the data they sent is diverse and how they can be controlled is yet another source of variation. This heterogeneity is a source of frustration for application developers and inhibits innovation.

DYAMAND simplifies the world of connected devices to make the creation of new, innovative applications easier.

Paving the way to success

We are excited to support DYAMAND in its mission in enabling companies to use their digital information to the fullest. DYAMAND currently consists of 5 people and is actively recruiting to expand its team. At Home of AI, they will have access to a relaxed co-working space, technical experts & potential investors where they can lay a solid foundation to achieve sustainable growth.
