Software AG is continuing its Internet of Things innovation drive with the launch of an extended Cumulocity IoT technology portfolio for cloud-based IoT platform services enablement.
Recent market research shows that while nearly 90% of executives surveyed feel the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is critical to their companies’ success, only 16% have a comprehensive IIoT roadmap. The new Cumulocity IoT portfolio aims to address this gap by offering self-service IoT solutions to enable organizations to develop their own IoT applications and solutions.
Cumolocity IoT is geared to meet the needs of two distinct groups in the IoT market, says Software AG: companies using IoT to enhance their own products and services; and IoT service providers seeking to build and commercialize an IoT platform.
The Cumulocity IoT portfolio operates at the edge, in the cloud or on premise – giving total customer freedom and choice in designing, building, deploying and upgrading enterprise IoT platform, solutions and services. It includes pre-packaged solutions such as Condition Monitoring, Predictive Maintenance and Track & Trace, as well as quick and easy device and sensor management, thus bringing the worlds of IT and operational technology (OT) together. According to the company, this freedom of choice allows for faster IoT innovation and adoption at a customer driven pace: from streamlining and efficiency of enterprise production processes – through total customer interaction and increased retention – by developing digital business models and the smart products and services demanded by today’s digital markets.
Cumulocity IoT brings together the benefits of Software AG’s Digital Business Platform and the original Cumulocity products portfolio into a single IoT portfolio, taking advantage of Software AG’s integration, business process, analytics and machine learning capabilities.
“Cumulocity IoT is unique in that it provides enterprises with the ability to very quickly start limited scale, cloud-based IoT projects and, as their sophistication grows, be confident to build IoT platform and IoT services that will grow effortlessly with them,” said Wolfram Jost, CTO, Software AG. “Enterprises can develop and implement IoT services at the optimal balance between risk and ambition, at their pace, at their choice."
Cumulocity IoT is already in use by leading technology companies like Deutsche Telekom, Gardner Denver, Octo Telematics, NTT Communication, and Reliance Group, he added.
