At CeBIT 2017 Bosch Software Innovations and Software AG are presenting new opportunities in data analysis for the Internet of Things (IoT). The new Track & Analyze cloud service, which the two companies developed in a technology partnership, enables IoT solution providers to use what are known as geospatial analytics functions to detect typical motion patterns of their connected devices and use this information to optimize their products and services.
Track & Analyze can monitor and analyze various characteristics of devices in motion, for instance to determine when they enter or leave a certain area or whether they are in a particular zone.
This service also recognizes typical patterns of motion that correlate with user groups, allows to analyze unusual behaviors, and process them in real time. Track & Analyze incorporates data-mining and machine-learning technologies; it is based on Software AG’s Apama Streaming Analytics platform.
Track & Analyze is one of the Bosch IoT Suite services, an open software platform for the Internet of Things that already connects more than five million devices and machines. These software services enable developers to quickly build, implement, and operate cloud-based and highly scalable IoT applications.
The Bosch IoT Suite addresses the requirements of the most common IoT scenarios: reliable management of devices, machines, and gateways; secure access management; realization of software-rollout processes; connection of third-party systems and services; and data analysis. Track & Analyze is a Bosch IoT Analytics service that Bosch Software Innovations provides on the Bosch IoT Cloud and operates together with Software AG. Other cloud environments are supported upon customers’ requests.
