Organisations can remotely manage and control their devices, ranging from tablets to robots, by using Ooredoo’s IoT Builder platform
Ooredoo, a leading global telecom company based in Qatar, has launched IoT Builder – a new Internet of Things (IoT) platform that allows it to create applications and to integrate connected devices for the business clients.
The IoT Builder solution is powered by Software AG’s Cumulocity, which is an industry-leading independent, open and telco-grade secure IoT platform.
Speaking at the launch, Yousuf Abdulla al-Kubaisi, Chief Operating Officer, Ooredoo, said, “IoT Builder combines integrated real-time data analytics visualisation, with scalable storage and device security, to drive new digital business. We’ve invested in developing this product because we understand that as Qatar’s organisations enter the IoT era, they need scalable IT infrastructure to meet their future business needs. We have the capabilities and experience to help businesses use IoT Builder to have full control over their IoT solutions.”
Importance of data management
David Milot, Vice President – Solutions for EMEA, Software AG, said, “In a region that is leading the way in development and innovation, having solutions in place to discover and amplify the value of data is of strategic importance. Cumulocity IoT provides the leading IoT platform covering the whole value proposition cycle – from data collection to device management, real-time analytics and API interaction with a growing ecosystem.”
“This allows data to be deployed at the right time and in the right format to empower people, nations and businesses. It creates a pathway to smarter cities, safer societies, better energy efficiency, increased comfort and authentic innovation,” he added.
Benefits for businesses
The users of IoT Builder can be benefited from increasing integration of machines, mobile devices, sensors and data that Ooredoo integrates into a single platform. Organisations can remotely manage and control their devices, ranging from tablets to robots, by using the new IoT platform.
The platform also offers real-time analytics on a single visual dashboard, that can enable the organisations to enhance monitoring of their assets, automating their supply chain, and predict the maintenance.
Ooredoo’s IoT solutions will be hosted at its Qatar Data Centre that provides high security and data sovereignty.
