Partnership will help companies get the most out of the mountain of data created by the Internet of Things
HP has announced it will be teaming up with Intel in a further bid to help more companies benefit from the Internet of Things.
The two companies will work together to create and develop new products that will help organisations quickly gather and analyse data from their connected devices.
The partnership will also see three new ‘global IoT Discovery Labs’ established in Houston, Grenoble and Singapore to allow companies to test out the latest applications and devices, and also see Hewlett Packard Enterprise introduce new reference architectures to help provide customers with the tools they need to build their own IoT solutions
“Achieving business outcomes from IoT can be daunting for organisations today due to the complexity of integrating many heterogeneous systems and technologies across devices, edge, network and data centres,” said Alain Andreoli, senior vice president and general manager of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Servers.
“With Intel, we will deliver new IoT solutions for data analytics and control at the edge of the network, empowering customers to quickly make informed decisions and drive business outcomes.”
Intel has long been a major investor in the IoT, with CEO Brian Krzanich heralding the IoT as bringing on “the third wave of computing”, earlier this month.
“The alignment of Intel and Hewlett Packard Enterprise is the latest example of a growing IoT ecosystem forming to fulfill the IoT promise,” said Doug Davis, senior vice president of Intel’s Internet of Things group.
“Together, we are delivering new IoT solutions to customers, as well as providing the opportunity to test IoT applications in the IoT Discovery Labs, enabling lower integration risks and accelerated time-to-value.”
Recent estimates from analyst firm Gartner predict that as many as 5.5 million devices will be connected every day in 2016 as the total number of ‘things’ comprising the Internet of Things (IoT) reaches 6.4 billion next year
Researchers at the firm expect the IoT will support services totaling $235bn next year – up two percent from this year – and will continue to rise as more devices are connected.
