IoT enabler Telit’s DeviceWise platform is now fully interoperable with the IBM IoT platform. Working together, the two companies aim to help manufacturers and other businesses reduce the cost, risk, complexity and lead time of deploying monitoring, control, industrial automation, asset tracking and field service operations.
 
This is the latest example of Telit's expertise in onboarding and integrating industrial devices and assets into the IoT, highlighting the Italian company’s device side experience and industrial technology and services expertise.
 
The combination of IBM's Watson IoT platform and DeviceWise gives manufacturers and other industrial businesses options for near-instant onboarding of industrial products, systems and assets, and applying analytics, artificial intelligence and application development.
 
"This new agreement enables manufacturers and other industrial businesses to leverage the combined strength of the world's two best solutions for industrial IoT and AI," said Yosi Fait, Telit CEO. "By working together, Telit and IBM are ensuring that IIoT lives up to its full potential for maximising efficiency, productivity and more."
 
DeviceWise streamlines the process of integrating industrial IoT devices and applications by providing a large library of native device drivers and industrial protocols. This eliminates the need for custom coding and other expensive, time-consuming integration tasks, so businesses can add value to their IoT bottom line and realise competitive benefits faster.
 
The IBM Watson IoT platform, available on the IBM cloud, brings real-time insights to IoT data and powerful artificial intelligence based capabilities including cognitive analysis, machine learning and natural language processing.
 
"AI makes it easier and faster for manufacturers to aggregate, analyse and act on data from multiple sources," said Stephan Biller, vice president for IBM Watson IoT. "Telit's DeviceWise complements IBM Watson's AI capabilities, making the two a natural fit that benefit manufacturers and other industrial businesses worldwide."
