Continuous innovation is at the core of development for the IoT vision
Bernd Gross, chief executive of Cumulocity, was interviewed for IoT Now magazine, on how Cumulocity's IoT platform is now positioned within parent Software AG and the new revolutionary approaches to Industrial IoT.
Bernd Gross, tells IoT Now that, the market is moving decisively towards an informed understanding of the potential of IoT solutions. Therefore, we start to see solid and strategic investment in the Internet of Things. We are in front of very complex projects because of their strategic nature, but also because of their size and their sophistication. For example, we are working on projects involving more than 100,000 machines. And, the project does not only aim to monitor these machines, but to run sophisticated activities such as predictive maintenance of those machines. Bear in mind, 100,000 machines is just the beginning. The project is moving towards a global roll-out, which will involve a larger number of machines.
Innovation speed is crucial for Industrial IoT
At Cumulocity we have a strong commitment to innovating our platform and actively invest in updating existing services and offering new ones. Consequently, we believe that Cumulocity offers a very reliable, scalable, and innovative platform. We offer capabilities that are not often seen in the market place. One to highlight is our true multi-tenant architecture. In some cases, multi-tenancy is used to describe multi-user access to platforms which present an intuitive UI to users and for multi-user management. However, this is just part of a multi-tenant architecture. Cumulocity offers multi-client architecture at database level. The data can be stored by customers completely separated at the database level. This ensures a strong level of data security. This aspect is becoming especially relevant in the Industrial Internet, in which the data volumes are growing continuously and in diverse ways. Following this, Cumulocity also offers a very flexible and expandable data sharing concept. This is important in the Industrial Internet because applications require interactions between a variety of partners and stakeholders as in the case of the supply chain.
