Continuous innovation is at the core of development for the IoT vision

Bernd Gross

Bernd Gross, chief executive of Cumulocity, was interviewed for IoT Now magazine, on how Cumulocity's IoT platform is now positioned within parent Software AG and the new revolutionary approaches to Industrial IoT.

Bernd Gross, tells IoT Now that, the market is moving decisively towards an informed understanding of the potential of IoT solutions. Therefore, we start to see solid and strategic investment in the Internet of Things. We are in front of very complex projects because of their strategic nature, but also because of their size and their sophistication. For example, we are working on projects involving more than 100,000 machines. And, the project does not only aim to monitor these machines, but to run sophisticated activities such as predictive maintenance of those machines. Bear in mind, 100,000 machines is just the beginning. The project is moving towards a global roll-out, which will involve a larger number of machines.

 

Innovation speed is crucial for Industrial IoT

 

At Cumulocity we have a strong commitment to innovating our platform and actively invest in updating existing services and offering new ones. Consequently, we believe that Cumulocity offers a very reliable, scalable, and innovative platform. We offer capabilities that are not often seen in the market place. One to highlight is our true multi-tenant architecture. In some cases, multi-tenancy is used to describe multi-user access to platforms which present an intuitive UI to users and for multi-user management. However, this is just part of a multi-tenant architecture. Cumulocity offers multi-client architecture at database level. The data can be stored by customers completely separated at the database level. This ensures a strong level of data security. This aspect is becoming especially relevant in the Industrial Internet, in which the data volumes are growing continuously and in diverse ways. Following this, Cumulocity also offers a very flexible and expandable data sharing concept. This is important in the Industrial Internet because applications require interactions between a variety of partners and stakeholders as in the case of the supply chain.

Software AG, a leader in IoT Technology, launches Cumulocity IoT

Software AG launches Cumulocity IoT

  • Fully cloud-enabled and scalable portfolio for the strong growing Internet of Things (IoT) market
  • Pre-configured IoT solutions enable enterprises to fast track IoT Services
  • Products include: industry leading device management, hybrid integration, streaming and predictive analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as improved strategic IoT scenario planning

Darmstadt, Germany, September 14, 2017 – Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) today continued its Internet of Things innovation drive with the launch of an extended Cumulocity IoT technology portfolio for cloud-based IoT platform services enablement. Cumulocity IoT will address today’s market demand for easy, fast, and scalable IoT solutions to support enterprises of all sizes, regardless of the level of sophistication of their IoT requirements. Recent market research shows that whereas nearly 90 percent of executives surveyed feel the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is critical to their companies’ success, only 16 percent have a comprehensive IIoT roadmap. The new Cumulocity IoT portfolio addresses this gap by offering self-service IoT solutions to enable organizations to develop their own IoT applications and solutions. Supporting customers, partners and suppliers through innovative, collaborative digital business models and “smart” IoT products and services is the driving force behind Software AG’s portfolio strategy.

The Cumulocity IoT portfolio operates at the edge, in the cloud or on premise – giving total customer freedom and choice in designing, building, deploying and upgrading enterprise IoT platform, solutions and services. It includes a range of pre-packaged solutions such as Condition Monitoring, Predictive Maintenance and Track & Trace, as well as quick and easy device and sensor management, thus bringing the worlds of IT and operational technology (OT) together. This freedom of choice allows for faster IoT innovation and adoption at a customer driven pace: from streamlining and efficiency of enterprise production processes – through total customer interaction and increased retention – by developing digital business models and the smart products and services demanded by today’s digital markets.

Cumulocity IoT brings together the power of Software AG’s Digital Business Platform and the original Cumulocity products portfolio into a single, comprehensive and leading IoT portfolio. The Cumulocity IoT portfolio will take full advantage of Software AG’s industry-leading integration, business process, advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities, based on its heritage in enterprise middleware platform leadership.

It meets the needs of two distinct groups in the IoT market :

  1. Companies using IoT to enhance their own products and services
  2. IoT service providers seeking to build and commercialize an IoT platform

Cumulocity IoT is unique in that it provides enterprises with the ability to very quickly start limited scale, cloud-based IoT projects and, as their sophistication grows, be confident to build IoT platform and IoT services that will grow effortlessly with them. Enterprises can develop and implement IoT services at the optimal balance between risk and ambition, at their pace, at their choice. Cumulocity IoT is already in use by leading technology companies like Deutsche Telekom, Gardner Denver, Octo Telematics, NTT Communication, Reliance Group, and many more. This gives us a head start in our ambition to become a leading Technology provider in the IoT domain.

We recently announced a joint venture in the IoT area which fully underlines our commitment to this growing market. The joint venture called ADAMOS is a major IoT collaborative alliance with the leading manufacturing enterprises Dürr, Zeiss, DMG Mori and ASM PT. The purpose of this IoT alliance is to establish global industry standards for the manufacturing sector using Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT as the technology foundation. ADAMOS partners and their customers will be able to leverage a comprehensive IoT platform and services at a fraction of the cost of developing their own solutions in a significantly shorter period of time.Wolfram Jost, Chief Technology Officer, Software AG

Best Practices for the Industrial IoT and Industry 4.0

Best Practices for Industrial IoT

Cumulocity shares the best practices enterprises should adopt to successfully leverage Industrial IoT.

The Industrial IoT - the Internet of Things for industrial applications - is about intelligent networking ranging from individual machines to entire production facilities. The integration of machines, processes and data enables new business models with smart devices and services. But how can a company offer new smart services? How can it enter the world of Industrial IoT? The best practices guide gives real world tips and help for the long road from idea to business model.

From the vast number of Industrial IoT initiatives it has supported across Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Americas, Cumulocity recognises that successful initiatives require a combination of: an agile development approach; expandable flexible future-proof technology; comprehensive data security framework; and a recognition of the legacy environment.

"The Industrial IoT requires speed. If a project takes much longer than six months before yielding initial results, the conditions as well as the company’s strategic goals may have already changed. The result, the project hits a dead end. That’s why agility is essential in every project phase, not just during the actual solution development." Bernd Gross, CEO, Cumulocity
