During 4Q17, we added three new 3rd party services to our growing partner ecosystem on the IBM Cloud platform. From IoT to A.I. to wealth management, we’re adding more services to give you, our developers, the services you need for build compelling digital solutions.
Here they are in alphabetical order:
Bosch Software Innovations
Bosch IoT Rollouts, a cloud service of the Bosch IoT Suite, helps you manage and control software updates for IoT devices. This Bosch service allows you to manage and control software updates on constrained edge devices, as well as on more powerful controllers and gateways.
Your devices can connect to the Bosch IoT Rollouts server either directly through an optimized interface or indirectly through federated device management servers. The service can be found under the Internet of Things category in the IBM Marketplace and the IBM Cloud catalog. Key features of Bosch IoT Rollouts are:
- Reliable and scalable software and firmware provisioning system for IoT.
- Enables software and operating system updates for IoT gateways (typically, though not necessarily, running Linux) and firmware updates for embedded devices connected via cable or over the air (OTA).
- Supports the following use cases: direct software updates, large scale rollout/campaign management, reporting, audit logging and rollout monitoring.
- Designed from the beginning as a cloud service with a focus on scalability, security, integrity, and cost efficiency.
- Various device integration options with open interfaces and flexible data models.
- Support for IoT application integration.
- Support for arbitrary device management and IoT connectivity services integration (e.g. IBM Watson IoT Platform).
- Based on open source and fully API compatible with Eclipse hawkBit™.
Updating software (components) on constrained edge devices, as well as on more powerful controllers and gateways, is a common requirement in most IoT scenarios. For example, auto manufacturers need to securely and efficiently schedule and organize software updates transmitted to millions of connected vehicles in a carefully managed fashion, without having to bring the vehicles into a workshop. White goods manufacturers need to remotely send updates to batches of thousands of washing machines and dryers, thus providing consumers with access to the latest updates, services and offerings – including convenient options such as the automatic ordering of detergent. Bosch IoT Rollouts was developed right from the beginning as a fully managed cloud service that targets precisely these kinds of large-scale use cases.
