IBM India yet to sign big clients for IoT business?

IBM IoT and India clientsIBM India has revealed the name of its Internet of Things (IoT) clients in the country. But these clients are not India’s leading enterprises.

Kone, KPIT, Avanijal Agri Automation and Acculi Labs are the latest IoT clients of IBM India. Out of this, Kone is a global company based in Finland.

“With a growing global ecosystem of over 6,000 clients, 1,400 partners and 750 IoT patents, IBM is uniquely positioned to lead the IoT revolution across industries and help companies in India plug into critical new revenue streams,” said Karan Bajwa, managing director, IBM India/South Asia.

IBM and IoT clients

KONE, a global elevator company, will use the IBM IoT Cloud Platform to connect, monitor and optimize the management of elevators, escalators, doors and turnstiles in buildings and cities. The system will analyze data from sensors embedded in equipment.

Rather than calling a service engineer, KONE can resolve selected technical issues remotely by running tests and making commands over the cloud, allowing it to identify and predict issues and minimize downtime.

KONE plans to leverage a vast developer ecosystem via Application Programming Interfaces (API’s) that will allow developers to make a smoother, safer and more personalized flow of people in some of the world’s busiest cities and buildings including India.
