Two of the biggest players in Industrial IoT/Industry 4.0 — Bosch and GE – are to collaborate on open source IoT platform development and on common standards to help machines and devices understand each other. GE Digital and Bosch Software Innovations have signed a MoU to “further facilitate openness and growth of the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT),” they say.
According to a joint statement, their agreement focuses on technology interoperability and platform integration through GE’s Predix operating system and the Bosch IoT Suite. They intend to make complementary software services available on the other company’s cloud platforms “to enhance the overall value of each cloud offering and provide solutions to a wider customer base.”
