MUNICH --- Today Seebo and IBM announce a collaboration to bring together the Seebo platform and IBM Watson Internet of Things (IoT). Connecting Seebo's easy-to-use IoT development capabilities with IBM's Watson IoT Platform and Bluemix empowers manufacturers to accelerate the delivery of smart products and gain insights from user data.
A growing number of manufacturers are connecting their products to the IoT to enhance their product's value and increase revenue streams. The complexity of developing smart products - including parallel software, firmware and hardware design, alongside new design and production considerations - often deters manufacturers from pursuing innovation through IoT. The addition of IBM's Watson IoT Platform alongside Seebo's SaaS platform helps to address these obstacles. The collaboration gives manufacturers access to tools to help build smart products quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively as well as out-of-the-box connection with the cloud.
As an IBM Watson IoT business partner, Seebo joins IBM's IoT ecosystem and links the two platforms together for easy use by developers and product managers. Seebo customers can use IBM's capabilities alongside Seebo's innovative hardware simulator and testing app to reduce development costs and accelerate smart product time to market.
The combination of hardware and app simulators, alongside the Cloud integration, empowers developers to build and test software independent of hardware, reducing the resources needed during smart product development.
One company taking advantage of the integration is Greengage, a manufacturer of lighting systems. The company is currently developing a smart solution with Seebo to enable remote control and monitoring of livestock houses for farmers, improving productivity and animal welfare management. "We are excited to be using Seebo's platform and the integration with the cloud and analytics from IBM Bluemix to launch a unique product solution that will revolutionize livestock management for farmers," said Derek Liddle, Director of Engineering at Greengage.
