Nerve currently runs on industrial PCs from 12 different vendors and integrates more than 3,000 open source software packages (such as Docker containers). I look forward to working closely with our customers and our partners on expanding and improving the solutions portfolio, and to bringing Nerve to many more markets to support companies of every size to become even more competitive with the help of our products and technologies.”
