Digital Lumens Welcomes Former GE Lighting Executive Matthew Healy to Team

Healy Will Lead Business Development Effort to Create an Open Ecosystem for Intelligent Lighting

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Digital Lumens announced today that it has appointed experienced lighting industry executive and market strategist Matthew Healy to lead its business development efforts. Healy previously served as business development director at GE Lighting, where he played an integral role in expanding the company's LED lighting portfolio. At Digital Lumens, Healy will be responsible for working with other players in the market to create an open and interoperable ecosystem for intelligent lighting.

The appointment comes on the heels of the company's recent announcement of $10 million in funding to fuel additional growth into new sectors and international markets. In bringing Healy on board, the company bolsters its ability to reach new customers and tap into those markets, supporting its vision for continued growth in the U.S. and around the globe.

"Having spent much of my career forging relationships and developing business opportunities in technology companies, I am thrilled to be joining Digital Lumens, whose intelligent LED lighting solutions are truly changing the game," says Healy. "I look forward to collaborating with my new team to accomplish an even greater level of success in the months and years to come."

Prior to his role at GE, Healy was the director of strategic marketing at Ferro Corporation, and ATMI, where he was responsible for strategic marketing and business development activities. Healy earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry from MIT, his PhD in the same field from Harvard University, and an MBA from the University of Chicago.

"We know that integrated intelligence creates a platform for radical energy efficiency and innovative functionality," said Tom Pincince, President and CEO of Digital Lumens. "But, the lack of open standards and a dynamic interoperable ecosystem has so far hampered massive adoption across the entire landscape. Matthew brings a wealth of knowledge, incredible industry experience, and razor-sharp go-to-market skills that will help us work with other players in the market to change this."

The industry leader in accelerating the LED lighting revolution, the Digital Lumens model combines LED lighting technology with energy management and service capabilities to offer its customers significant savings of 90 percent annually.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
