IBM and AT&T join forces in the IoT

Share this post:

IBM and AT&T team up to create robust IoT solutions. This collaboration will provide deeper insights from data collected from connected devices. This partnership will bring forth a fully integrated solution that will provide access to powerful design tools, global connectivity, advance analytics, and cognitive services for analyzing IoT data. These features will help to illuminate business opportunities across many industries.

The power of Watson APIs, including visual recognition, personality insights, tradeoff analytics and translation, is captured within the Internet of Things to digest unstructured data through the utilization of cognitive computing, and deep learning approaches. The AT&T platform will enable users to track assets in real-time and provide increased connectivity. The culmination of these services will give users a uniquely sophisticated IoT experience.

Developers can now build IoT apps for connected cities, industrial equipment, cars, homes and health services.


“IBM and AT&T are bringing together powerful platforms and services to rally developers in an open ecosystem to drive collaborative innovation for the Internet of Things, “said Harriet Green, general manager, IBM Watson IoT, Commerce & Education. “Our highly secure solution enables developers to tap the power of cognitive computing together with massive amounts of data streaming from billions of connected devices, sensors and systems to create solutions that can help transform business and society alike.”

What will this partnership give developers?

This partnership will give users access to AT&T M2X, Flow Designer and Control Center with the Watson IoT platform and IBM Bluemix services. Developers will be able to purchase this package within one toolkit. The combination of these services promises to lead to an advanced IoT solution. AT&T is introducing an “IoT in a box” concept that will expedite IoT projects. This initiative will provide the tools necessary for IoT innovation, including connectivity, LTE hardware, application services, cloud storage, and more.  IBM’s DeveloperWorks Premuim subscribers will receive a SIM card with up to 6 months of data to use with AT&T’s new IoT Starterkit for free. These features will enable users to jump right into the world of advanced analytics within the Internet of Things.
