Seebo and IBM Collaborate to Simplify IoT Development for Product Companies

Bringing together IBM and Seebo IoT capabilities allows manufacturers to derive business value from smart products

MUNICH, February 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Today Seebo, the development platform for smart products, and IBM announced 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.

"We are excited for Seebo to join with our Watson IoT Platform," said Neil Postlethwaite, Director, Watson IoT Platform at IBM. "Seebo offers a unique set of tools that enable quick time to market for new IoT products in this fast-growing space. IBM sees this collaboration as one which will enable clients to rapidly design and develop their IoT products; while also having the ability to use cognitive capabilities from IBM's IoT and Watson services."

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.

"In less than an hour of using Seebo's platform, product managers see data from their newly-developed online prototype visualized on the cloud dashboard," said Lior Akavia, Seebo Co-Founder and CEO.

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.

 "We are proud to be joining forces with IBM. Through our collaboration, we allow our customers to enjoy the synergy of IBM's most advanced IoT, cloud and analytics tools and Seebo's fast development capabilities to become active players of their sectors' growing digital transformation trends," said Akavia.

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.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
