Joint Forces Enable Big Data Solutions for the Internet of Things for Major Verticals
CHICAGO and NEW YORK — May 21, 2014 — Bosch Software Innovations, the software and systems house of the Bosch Group, and MongoDB, the database provider for modern applications, announced today that they will work together to deliver big data solutions to the mobility, retail supply chain and manufacturing industries.
It’s estimated that more than 14 billion devices, appliances and systems will be connected to the internet by 2022, creating a large amount of unstructured data and a growing need for big data solutions. Bosch Software Innovations is partnering with MongoDB to support the development of applications that utilize and analyze rich new sources of complex, real-time data from sensors and other connected devices, like cars and industrial machines. The software suite by Bosch Software Innovations allows devices to be securely integrated into existing business processes on the basis of pre-defined rules. This integration, combined with MongoDB’s proven scalability and dynamic data model, creates a platform on which customers around the globe can build applications for the Internet of Things (IoT), such as fleet management and predictive maintenance.
“The value of Internet of Things applications can only be fully realized when analysis is delivered in real-time – providing the ability to react and respond as processes are in-flight. These applications call for innovative software development methodologies and flexible data models,” said Dr. Rainer Kallenbach, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations. “MongoDB’s scalable, flexible and secure data management platform and our market-proven software suite for the Internet of Things will allow our customers to profit from a faster realization of their business models, as well as rapid adaptions and enhancements that are imminent for being successful in the Internet of Things.”
“The Internet of Things is now on the agenda of every major organization and is quickly becoming embedded in the operational fabric of all business,” said Max Schireson, CEO at MongoDB. “Bosch is an established brand that is already entrenched in millions of innovative applications across a variety of consumer and industrial markets. Thus, as the software and systems house of the Bosch Group, Bosch Software Innovations is squarely positioned to address new connectivity needs in a networked world. Together, we share a laser focus on enabling modern applications that address connectivity needs in a networked world and support new business models.”
Bosch Software Innovations works with clients all over the globe to address their connectivity needs in a networked world and to successfully implement new business models today. The company’s software suite comprises core products for Business Process Management (BPM), Business Rules Management (BRM), and Device Management (M2M), and can be used in a wide range of IoT application scenarios, including mobility, energy, manufacturing, smart home and smart cities.
