Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced the launch of a Customer Experience Center (CEC) in Bengaluru to offer IoT solutions to enterprise customers and partners from across industries.
Last year, HPE India launched a Center of Excellence in Andhra Pradesh to skill students in IoT-based agriculture.
EV Ramana Reddy, additional chief secretary, Department of IT & BT, Science and Technology, Government of Karnataka, inaugurated the IoT facility on Friday. Prashant Kumar Mishra, director, Department of IT & BT and MD, KITS, Government of Karnataka; and Som Satsangi, MD – India, HPE, attended the function.
HPE India’s IoT Customer Experience Center is part of the $500 million investment into India announced by HPE in July 2019.
HPE in a statement said that the CEC will provide customers globally with access to IoT technologies to develop solutions across agriculture, automotive, healthcare, intelligent manufacturing, security, smart cities, smart grid and smart transportation.
The CEC also demonstrates proof of concepts using IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) technologies. Collectively, these capabilities can be leveraged by private and public organizations to propel the growth of local economies.
“IoT is enabling a range of critical services across areas including healthcare, smart cities, and transportation,” said Som Satsangi, MD – India, HPE.
The CEC is co-located with HPE Pointnext Services Global Center, one of the largest technical solutions site for HPE. The center has over 3,000 engineers delivering technical services to customers in over 55 countries in areas such as big data, AI, IoT, intelligent edge, and software defined infrastructure.
Sanjay Mujoo, VP, HPE Pointnext Services, said: “Through the CEC’s collaborative environment we will work closely with our customers and partners to develop, test, and assist them in the deployment of advanced IoT solutions.”
