As an emerging technology the Internet of Things strongly paves its way in our ever-connected world. A wide variety of smart IoT solutions, apps and services are increasingly available. Individual developers and businesses now can tap into cognitive computing, machine learning and deep learning and combine it with massive amounts of data streaming from billions of connected devices, sensors and systems.
For instance, the new collaboration between AT&T and IBM puts at the core of stakes:
- Open standards-based tools on the IBM Cloud to enable developers to more quickly build and implement a wide variety of IoT solutions,
- Skilled IoT developers,
- Investment in open-source based tools, such as Node-Red, and open standards like MQTT, all essential for creating IoT solutions,
- New level of IoT possibilities and solutions for developers,
- Massive amounts of data streaming from billions of connected devices, sensors and systems.
In effect, developers can now use IBM's open Watson Internet of Things (IoT) Platform and Bluemix services together with AT&T IoT Platforms to gain deeper insights from data collected from connected devices.
