With this connection, the manufacturers also get the option of including the delivery of events to users, for remote equipment control or alert sending during cases like device breakdowns.
The IBM IoT Foundation hosts a long list of fully managed cloud-hosted offerings on the SoftLayer Infrastructure. The Foundation provides a cinch path for deriving value from IoT devices and provides analytics tools that can deal with large quantities of fast-moving data. It also gives access to IBM Bluemix, which is IBM's Platform-as-a-Service platform, capable of handling the immense flow of data and provides round the clock access for decision makers.

"Deploying IoT technology has to be easy, secure and scalable for it to feel like a natural extension of a company's business," says Krisztian Flautner, General Manager, IoT Business, ARM. "By collaborating with IBM, we will deliver the first unified chip-to-cloud, enterprise-class IoT platform. This will empower companies of any size with a productivity tool that can readily transform how they operate, and the services they can offer."
With this integration taking lead, the clients receive a slew of benefits which includes improved engagement, accelerated innovation and enhanced operations through connected devices and analysis of the data.
IBM also announced the first set of IoT services in the series of IBM Cloud-based, industry-specific IoT for Electronics. With this service electronic manufacturers can gather data sourced from individual sensors which can be coupled with other data for a real-time analysis.
