IBM Cloud IoT Platform to Deliver New Device Management, Risk Management and Analytics Capabilities; New IoT Service for Electronics
IBM today announced an expansion of its Internet of Things (IoT) platform – called IBM IoT Foundation - through an integration with ARM, providing out of the box connectivity with ARM® mbed™-enabled devices to analytics services. This fusion will allow huge quantities of data from devices such as industrial appliances, weather sensors and wearable monitoring devices to be gathered, analyzed and acted upon.
IBM also announced the first in a series of IBM Cloud-based, industry-specific IoT services with IoT for Electronics. The service will enable electronics manufacturers to gather data from individual sensors that can be combined with other data for real-time analysis.
The IBM IoT Foundation is a platform upon which a family of fully managed, cloud-hosted offerings on the SoftLayer Infrastructure is built. IoT Foundation makes it simple to derive value from Internet of Things (IoT) devices. It includes:
- Analytics tools capable of dealing with large quantities of fast-moving data,
- Access to IBM Bluemix, IBM's Platform-as-a-Service, that is capable of handling the immense flow of data and provide anytime access for decision-makers; and
- Security systems capable of helping organizations protect IoT data as rigorously as they do their own confidential financial, IP and strategy information.
"Deploying IoT technology has to be easy, secure and scalable for it to feel like a natural extension of a company's business," said Krisztian Flautner, General Manager, IoT Business, ARM. "By collaborating with IBM, we will deliver the first unified chip-to-cloud, enterprise-class IoT platform. This will empower companies of any size with a productivity tool that can readily transform how they operate, and the services they can offer."
