Cumulocity and Micro Technology sign a Strategic Partnership Agreement to offer IoT / M2M services under the brand of “CUMoNoSU” in the Japanese market.
Micro Technology Co., Ltd., a solution provider for embedded system development and Cumulocity GmbH, the global leading cloud based software platform provider for the IoT (Internet of Things) have announced their Strategic Partnership for the Japanese market.
The Japanese IoT/ M2M market will soon become one of the globally leading innovation hot spots in the area IoT/ M2M for B2B and B2C.
The aim of this partnership is to respond to the increasing demand for IoT / M2M solutions in the Japanese market.
The offering enables Japanese enterprises to kick start their IoT/ M2M deployments without the need to re-invent the wheel. They can simply focus to innovate ‘around’ the CUMoNoSU SaaS offering. By doing so Japanese Enterprises are going to speed up their innovations as well as reduce their project costs fundamentally. Furthermore the overall project risks including software development, operations and support are lowered to a minimum. CUMoNoSU SaaS offering will be hosted and operated in Japan with multilingual support including Japanese. The service will become commercially available in 3Q 2015.
Mr. Shinichi Ishimatsu, President of Micro Technology states:
“I am realizing the expanding demand of the IoT platform in Japan, but in reality, there are a lot of cases where the introduction of the IoT services makes no progress since ‘traditional’ IoT solutions cannot meet customers’ requirements from the viewpoint of ROI. We are sure that our new IoT Cloud platform service “CUMoNoSU” will meet such customers’ needs in the future.”
“The ‘CUMoNoSU’ is perfectly suited to the realization of IoT services, not only in the aspect of function but also of price”.
Bernd Gross, CEO of Cumulocity, said about the partnership with Micro Technology:
“This partnership will enable ‘Industrie 4.0’ solutions for the Japanese market, which our company has been participating in Germany since 2010. Our partnership creates excellent end customer value and promotes an adoption of innovative IoT solutions in Japan. With “CUMoNoSU” we can expand our offering in one of the most important markets globally”.
