PArtnership unites ARM mbed IoT Device Platform and the IBM IoT Foundation.
Technology giant IBM and chip designer ARM have joined forces in order to speed up the delivery of IBM’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform.
The partnership unites ARM mbed IoT Device Platform and the IBM IoT Foundation where data collected from deployed sensors in any connected device can be delivered to the cloud for analysis.
The integration will enable products powered by ARM mbed-enabled chips to automatically register with the IBM IoT Foundation, and connect with IBM analytics services.
Clients will be allowed to enhance engagement, speed up innovation and improve operations via connected devices and data analysis.
ARM IoT business general manager Krisztian Flautner said: "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."
The integration will help in accelerating innovation and enhancing operation through connected devices and analysis of data.
OEMs can also build better hardware using ARM chip technology and IBM’s IoT services for predictive maintenance, better asset performance, operational risk management and managed continuous engineering.
IBM IoT general manager Pat Toole said: "Since 2008, IBM has helped thousands of customers embrace the Internet of Things — to help cities become smarter, hospitals to transform patient care and financial institutions to improve risk management.
"The IoT is now at an inflection point and it needs the big data expertise of IBM and little data expertise of ARM to ensure it reaches its global potential."
IBM also unveiled IoT for electronics service, which will allow manufacturers to collect information from individual sensors with the ability to combine them with other data for real-time analysis.
