Seebo, IBM Collaborate to Simplify IoT Development

Seebo, a development platform for smart products, and IBM have announced a collaboration to bring together the Seebo platform and IBM Watson Internet of Things (IoT). Connecting Seebo's IoT development capabilities with IBM's Watson IoT Platform and Bluemix enables manufacturers to accelerate the delivery of smart products and gain insights from user data.

A growing number of manufacturers are connecting their products to the IoT to enhance value and increase revenue streams. The complexity of developing smart products, including parallel software, firmware and hardware design, alongside new design and production considerations, often deters manufacturers from pursuing innovation through the IoT. The addition of IBM's Watson IoT Platform alongside Seebo's SaaS platform, the companies report, helps to address these obstacles. The collaboration gives manufacturers access to tools to help build smart products quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively, as well as out-of-the-box connection with the cloud.

"We are excited for Seebo to join with our Watson IoT Platform," said Neil Postlethwaite, the director of the IBM Watson IoT platform, in a prepared statement. "Seebo offers a unique set of tools that enable quick time to market for new IoT products in this fast-growing space. IBM sees this collaboration as one which will enable clients to rapidly design and develop their IoT products; while also having the ability to use cognitive capabilities from IBM's IoT and Watson services."

As an IBM Watson IoT business partner, Seebo joins IBM's IoT ecosystem, linking the two platforms together for use by developers and product managers. Seebo's customers can use IBM's capabilities alongside its own innovative hardware simulator and testing app to reduce development costs and accelerate smart product time to market.

"In less than an hour of using Seebo's platform, product managers see data from their newly-developed online prototype visualized on the cloud dashboard," said Lior Akavia, Seebo's co-founder and CEO, in the prepared statement. "We are proud to be joining forces with IBM. Through our collaboration, we allow our customers to enjoy the synergy of IBM's most advanced IoT, cloud and analytics tools and Seebo's fast development capabilities to become active players of their sectors' growing digital transformation trends."
