asvin is targeting the market below large enterprise customers. In this segment, the knowledge of providing stable and secure updates is for customers less available with in-house teams and the cost pressure for providing stable service over product life-cycle is extremely high – especially for consumer goods and small to mid-size industrial IoT (IIoT) companies.

The core functionality is delivered as open source. As components of asvin are implemented on customer products we chose that, to lower the barriers of using. This open source license types grants unleash usage during costumer product lifetime. As the libraries are free to use, asvin creates revenues based upon two open source business revenue models:

1. SaaS – Software as a Service
2. Service and Support
