Cumulocity partners Cisco Jasper on IoT services
April 27, 2016
IoT application platform provider Cumulocity is partnering with Cisco Jasper, Cisco’s IoT Cloud Business Unit, to streamline the delivery of IoT services and applications through connected devices.
Cumulocity will integrate the functionality of the Cisco Jasper IoT service platform, making it easier for joint customers to manage the delivery of IoT services and applications on the Cisco Jasper platform from within Cumulocity.
“Our goal is to make it as simple as possible for enterprises to deliver and manage IoT services while working within their IT solutions of choice,” said Macario Namie, Head of IoT Strategy at Cisco Jasper. “This integration gives Cumulocity customers access to their Cisco Jasper IoT service platform, and all of the visibility, intelligence and control they need to manage their connected services, from within Cumulocity.”
“Over 3,500 enterprises rely on the Cisco Jasper platform to deliver their IoT services, and many of those enterprises already utilise Cumulocity’s powerful application enablement platform to create, deploy and manage IoT applications that facilitate control of devices and their data,” said Jari Salminen, MD Sales & Strategic Partners at Cumulocity. “This collaboration enables our existing joint customers to easily manage their IoT connectivity, devices and data within a single solution, while also streamlining the ability for new customers to bring IoT services and applications to market.”
Control Center is the Cisco Jasper IoT service platform, a cloud-based IoT platform that enables companies of all sizes to rapidly and cost-effectively launch, manage and monetise IoT services for any connected device. The platform, which is easily configurable to meet the unique requirements of businesses across a broad range of industries, helps companies accelerate time-to-market, automate operations, optimise performance, troubleshoot and fix issues, and manage costs.
The Cumulocity IoT application enablement platform is designed to enable an open ecosystem with free and immediate access to test accounts, open developer documentation and tools. The Cumulocity platform is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, which is sold through mobile operators and is extensible to enterprise end customers. Through this integration, mobile operators who resell Cumulocity services will have the benefit of having Control Center functionality built into the Cumulocity-based applications they make available to their enterprise customers.
