A Powerful Partnership

AT&T brings its M2M globally accessible network, devices, and Global Subscriber Identity Module to help connect assets worldwide to a single global network. These technologies are managed through AT&T’s M2M platforms to securely collect, organize, store and send the data to applications.

IBM brings the Intelligent Operations Center, Maximo Asset Management, its advanced analytics capabilities, and IBM MessageSight MQTT Appliance, which complements the IBM MobileFirst family of solutions. IBM MobileFirst provides the management, security and analytics capabilities needed for organizations to capitalize on the increasing role of mobile devices in the Internet of Things. The two companies will work together to build solutions at the AT&T M2M Foundry in Plano, Texas and IBM Global Solution Centers around the world.

We caught up with Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT, to get his take on the partnership. He told us in order to enable an Internet of Things solution, you need access to a robust network, intelligent sensors or endpoints, and a backend IT infrastructure capable of supporting complex, secure analytics.

“In this instance, AT&T is providing the first two elements and IBM is supplying the third. Interestingly, the combined solution appears fully capable of supporting classic Internet of Things sensor-based applications, like gathering and analyzing data from traffic cameras,” King said. “But it should also be capable of incorporating social media and other information provided by cellular subscribers, allowing granular analysis of local events. Overall, this looks like a powerful partnership that, if successful, will likely be extended by the companies or copied by others.”
