IBM has announced new Watson IoT Consulting Solutions, including specific offerings for the automotive, electronics and insurance industries.
Jesus Mantas, GM for IBM Business Consulting explained that the goal is to help enable organizations recognize and benefit from the business transformation benefits that IoT can help to provide.
“We wanted to create an easy way for clients to consume IoT services in an integrated way,” Mantas told eWEEK. “So instead of organizations needing to buy a platform, hire consultants, put it all together and then build a business, we’re putting it all together inside of an IBM stack.”
The IBM IoT stack is made of multiple layers, including the physical layer with hardware as well software, security and consulting services. Bret Greenstein, Vice-President, Watson IoT at IBM added that real value for organizations from IoT is derived from business transformation.
