Bausch Lomb, Kyocera, WhirlpoolThis week, three companies in healthcare and manufacturing announced that they’re adopting IBM Cloud.

Eye health company Bausch + Lomb launched two new Eyetelligence applications that will run on IBM Cloud. The applications use Internet of Things (IoT) services on IBM Cloud to give the company a centralized view of operational and performance data to help eye surgeons work more efficiently using the company’s Stellaris Elite vision enhancement systems. Surgeons can make service requests and report technical issues, as well as sync settings across all of the Stellaris Elite machines on which they operate.

Whirlpool is using IBM Cloud to manage and provide around-the-clock access to critical enterprise applications for its 70 home appliance manufacturing global sites, distribution and call centers, and other systems. The company’s SAP HANA environments, which include enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management and business warehousing, will use IBM Services for Managed Applications for SAP HANA, which offers cloud support for up to 24 terabytes using IBM Power Systems and IBM Storage.

KYOCERA Document Solutions America, the arm of the company producing office document imaging equipment, will use IBM Cloud-based services to manage mission-critical applications, thereby reducing costs and increasing flexibility. IBM Services will facilitate daily IT management for the company’s cloud-based services and offer technical support to help automate business operations, thereby freeing up infrastructure staff to focus on modernization and innovation.
