IoT Made Simple With IBM Watson IoT Platform

Date: September 20, 2016
Time: 2:00 PM ET | 11:00 AM PT

By bringing together the physical and digital worlds, the Internet of Things (IoT) vastly expands the reach and impact of information technology, offering transformational possibilities.  Yet according to IBM, nearly 90% of IoT data is never utilized.  Cognitive IoT can bring intelligence into things, systems and processes so they can understand your goals, and then integrate and analyze the relevant data to help you achieve them.  

IBM® Watson IoT offerings and ecosystem partners extend the power of cognitive computing to connected devices and systems. IBM Watson IoT Platform is a fully managed, cloud-hosted service that makes it simple to build and deploy apps for IoT devices, sensors and gateways. It provides solutions for device registration, connectivity, control, rapid visualization and storage of data derived from the IoT.    When combined with the IBM Bluemix® environment, and access to secure Watson APIs, the platform allows you to integrate and analyze predictive, cognitive, and contextual analytics for stronger decision-making.  

Avnet and IBM joined together to simplify the development cycle at every stage and give our customers the power to unlock the potential of IoT.   The two companies will provide customers with a wide range of resources from the edge to the enterprise to develop IoT solutions that effectively gather information, connect to the Internet, and securely manage and analyze data.

Attend this webinar to learn about how IBM Watson IoT Platform.
