Jasper hooks up with IBM for end to end IoT deployment
First it was VMware; then it was Salesforce and SAP. Now IoT platform provider Jasper has announced an alliance with IBM to integrate its Control Center platform with the tech giant’s IoT Foundation.
The two firms will provide end to end IoT deployment, managing application development throughout the service lifecycle, as well as analytics and automation through IBM Bluemix and device, application ,and Control Center IoT service data through the IBM IoT Foundation.
“Thousands of enterprises around the world rely on Jasper to deliver their IoT services. Many of those already utilise, or plan to utilise IBM for their IoT application development and analytics,” said Jasper VP strategy Macario Namie. “This collaboration unites the capabilities of these powerful IoT solutions, giving enterprises a one-stop shop for the development and delivery of IoT services globally.
“As a result, enterprises can more quickly and cost-effectively provide their customers with IoT services that enhance the user experience and create new revenue streams,” he added.
Jasper currently partners with 27 mobile operator groups globally, and the company’s main focus of late has been on China, with more than 500 enterprises trialling Control Center with China Unicom. Companies involved include two of China’s 10 largest auto manufacturers, alongside several major retailers, wearable manufacturers, and telematics service providers.
Speaking to Enterprise AppsTech following the Salesforce and SAP partnerships, announced at Mobile World Congress, Jasper VP product marketing Simon Berman explained: “We’re not in the business of doing partnerships for the sake of partnerships. In the IoT space it’s a very busy environment, there are lots of players, and the question is separating the noise from the meaningful stuff.”
The meaningful stuff, in this case, will enable organisations to use the two companies’ IoT solutions to inform their analytics and make more effective, data-driven business decisions. Among IBM’s other partnerships are Twitter, for greater social media analytics, Box, for greater security in cloud apps, and Apple, for enterprise apps in key industry verticals.
