Business challenge story

Envisioning more accessible telematics

Although telematics technology has been available for decades, traditional telematics systems have proved too cumbersome and costly for many organizations. Envisioning a subscription-based solution designed to make telematics capabilities more widely accessible, TeMeDa needed a highly scalable cloud hosting platform. Additionally, the company wanted to team with an IT leader offering world-class infrastructure management services.

IBM Cloud Infrastructure services offers cost and performance leadership. The platform is prewired, preinstrumented and prestaged for worldwide solution delivery.
