Munich/Stuttgart, Germany: IBM and Bosch have announced a collaboration for industrial Internet of Things (IoT), making available Bosch IoT Suite services on open standards-based IBM Bluemix and IBM Watson IoT Platform for clients to efficiently update millions of IoT devices. With an estimated 20.8 billion connected things in use by 2020 (Source: Gartner), customers expect their devices to always have the latest features and performance improvements. Bosch is making available its ‘Bosch IoT Rollouts’ service for advanced device management and cloud-based software updates on Bluemix and integrated with the IBM Watson IoT Platform. Clients of both companies will be able to access ‘Bosch IoT Rollouts’ via the IBM Cloud, backed by the scale, flexibility, privacy and security that is critical for updating connected devices and driving continued innovation in industrial IoT.

Bosch plans to extend its Bosch IoT Suite services on IBM Bluemix and Watson IoT Platform for custom application development and runtime purposes. IoT solution developers will also benefit from the seamless integration with IBM’s Watson IoT capabilities.For example, auto manufacturers can now schedule and organise software updates to millions of vehicles in a managed fashion securely and efficiently, without requiring the vehicle to come into a workshop. A white goods manufacturer can remotely send updates to batches of thousands of washing machines and dryers, providing consumers access to the latest updates, services and offerings, including automatic reordering of detergent, for example.
