With concerns ranging from non-standardized technology and security vulnerabilities, enterprises take a cautious approach to investing in internet of things (IoT) technologies. With an eye on making this an easier process, Huawei has partnered up with Software AG to offer a self-described “one-stop-shop” for IoT.
Software AG has a broad-range of enterprise offerings including data analytics tools, process automation solutions and IT integration and management products.
“The internet of things, whether through smart industries, smart cities, smart energy and connected cars will impact society and the global economy on a massive scale. It will be truly game changing for every enterprise”, Eric Duffaut, Chief Customer Officer of Software AG, said in a statement. “The power and breadth of Huawei’s cloud and IoT platforms combined with the software based intelligence and integration capabilities of Software AG’s Digital Business Platform will allow any enterprise to harness the IoT and develop global, innovative digital product or services.”
As Duffaut alluded, Huawei is bringing to the partnership its cloud and edge computing portfolio, along with its Open IoT platform and network infrastructure hardware. Software AG is bringing streaming analytics, hybrid enterprise integration, and predictive analytics, according to the companies.
Vincent Pang, president of Huawei Western Europe, said: “With Software AG’s capabilities and solutions, we are able to maximize the value of IoT and make it accessible to our customers wherever required. It fits seamlessly into our IoT vision. This cooperation continues to reflect our ongoing commitment to building cloud ecosystems with partners, and helping our European customers achieve greater business success.”
