IBM Watson IoT platform gets enterprise engineering functionality

IBM says continuous engineering is key to IoT

IBM Watson, a data-analyzing computer platform that can answer open domain questions, first became famous in 2011 when it beat two “Jeopardy” champions, and has since involved into medical use and more recently the “Internet of Things.”

The Watson IoT platform essentially uses cognitive computing to analyze data from IoT sensors and other networked software to make decisions. In its latest application, IBM has partnered Watson with Persistent Systems to use the super computer to transform engineering services processes by turning IoT data into product development insight. Persistent Systems specializes in continuous engineering, analytics and enterprise transformation.

According to the companies, “IBM IoT Continuous Engineering Solutions are designed to help manufacturers create smart, connected devices, while addressing the cost, time and quality challenges in delivering complex, connected products for the IoT.”

Chris O’Connor, GM of IBM Watson IoT Offerings, said the partnership would help “drive industry disruption in the ‘Internet of Things,’ which requires a new approach to solution development. Through continuous engineering, we can help customers to more quickly adapt to the huge amounts of data available to make strategic decisions and innovate more seamlessly. From improving the customer experience and offering new services to boosting operational performance, continuous engineering is key to the success of IoT.”
