Deutsche Telekom and its enterprise customer unit T-Systems will expand its Cloud of Things offering, using Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform. This is a new way of partnering and co-operating to offer complete IoT solutions for the real-time economy.

T-Systems will use Cumulocity IoT’s connected architecture as the new foundation for its integrated Cloud of Things IoT platform. Cloud of Things is the backbone that supports a vast range of mission-critical customer applications, starting small but scaling fast.

It allows companies to remotely monitor, manage and control their connected devices and machines. The platform provides a wealth of insight that helps cut costs, boost efficiency, increase security and create new value by converting raw data into business intelligence.

Customers can simplify their IoT and integration needs with self-service analytics and gain insights to accelerate their businesses for the fully connected future.

DT and T-Systems will be able to service a much larger and more varied global market. Cloud of Things will now operate within a multi-cloud environment, giving it greater ability to scale quickly with customer demand and expand its capabilities with many new functional extensions, including streaming analytics, microservices and new protocols.

These improvements will allow customers to fully realize the power of an integrated platform, tapping into entirely new industries such as the smart home sector.

According to Adel Al-Saleh, CEO of T-Systems and Board Member of Deutsche Telekomm Software AG’s technology is critical in enabling DT to scale an already successful service and introduce new functionality, giving it the confidence to move into new sectors.

Software AG has recently been named a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms. The strategic global partnership with Deutsche Telekom reinforces the company’s excellence in IoT capabilities.
