Jasper, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform leader, today announced it is working with IBM to integrate their IoT service platform, Control Center with IBM’s IoT Foundation. This will help IBM’s and Jasper’s clients to create complete IoT solutions, extending IBM’s cloud based real-time information management and analytics with Jasper’s IoT service management capabilities.
The combination of Jasper Control Center and IBM IoT Foundation will provide enterprises worldwide with the following advantages:
- End-to-End IoT Deployment – Enterprises in any industry can quickly bring IoT services to market via a single solution that enables them to manage IoT application development, connectivity and the entire service lifecycle.
- Analytics & Automation – The combination of IBM Bluemix analytics and Jasper Control Center automation capabilities will provide enterprises with deeper insights for more powerful decision-making.
- Central Visibility, Global Scale – Businesses will gain a global view of their IoT deployments – including device, application and Control Center IoT service data – all though the IBM IoT Foundation.
Using the integrated Jasper and IBM IoT solution, enterprises in any industry can view and control their devices to manage the IoT service lifecycle from within their IBM IoT Foundation dashboard. For example, they can activate services, monitor usage and automate the way their devices behave on the network. These enterprises will also benefit from a full view of both telemetry and connectivity data to inform their analytics and decisions.
“Thousands of enterprises around the world rely on Jasper to deliver their IoT services. Many of those already utilize, or plan to utilize IBM for their IoT application development and analytics,” said Macario Namie, VP of Strategy at Jasper. “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.”
The IBM IoT Foundation provides analytics services that will help every enterprise design and deliver IoT solutions. Enterprises will be able to connect their devices, send data to the IBM Cloud, set up and manage all devices, and use APIs to connect apps with their device data. The IBM IoT Foundation can provide enterprises with a streamlined path to deliver new services that can be highly customized to individual customers. Scaling through cloud-based services and using rich analytics, IBM IoT Foundation can provide organizations with new insights for innovation and transformation.
Control Center, the Jasper IoT service platform, is an industry-leading cloud-based IoT platform that enables companies of all sizes to rapidly and cost-effectively launch, manage and monetize IoT services for any connected device. The platform, which is easily configurable to meet the unique requirements of businesses across any industry, gives companies the automation, intelligence and global scale they need to deliver IoT services worldwide. Jasper partners with 27 mobile operator groups, representing more than 100 mobile operator networks worldwide, to deliver the benefits of Control Center in over 100 countries.
