The Internet of Things connects our private and professional worlds. At Bosch Software Innovations, we believe that companies and private individuals can benefit from added value only when these four areas are seamlessly and effectively integrated with each other.
The IoT focuses heavily on benefits for end customers, since they ultimately decide whether to use the things and services on offer. To encourage users to take advantage of them, products and services should be designed to capture users’ interest in their own personal environment, enhance their quality of life, and be easy to use.
Process optimization, device management, end-to-end processes, real-time decisions, and data integration are just some of the critical topics that are increasingly demanding the attention of businesses worldwide. To stay on top of these trends and ensure that everything runs smoothly in the IoT, companies need to optimize their existing services or develop new ones. The Bosch IoT Suite provides key support in this process – starting from the customer inquiry, continuing through incorporating device data, and all the way to payment.
In the connected world, partnerships between businesses are becoming more important than ever. That's because no single company can successfully tackle all of the increasingly complex challenges on its own. These partnerships can be anything from technology partnerships and service partnerships to groups of companies that have decided to jointly market their products. If companies can model and implement these partnerships using software, they can cooperate more quickly and efficiently, benefiting all involved.
The IoT links the physical world of things to the virtual world of the internet. By linking together computer networks, sensors, actuators, machines, and devices, the IoT offers a multitude of new opportunities for businesses to develop new products and services. The Bosch IoT Suite lays the necessary groundwork, providing efficient device management and one platform for connecting things to a wide variety of applications as well as to market players.
