Samsung Electronics and VMware announced a new collaboration to help simplify Internet of Things (IoT) for both information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) teams by expanding end-to-end IoT solutions for industrial and enterprise customers.
The companies will showcase the combination of the Samsung Artik Smart IoT platform with VMware Pulse IoT Center, offering a secure, enterprise-grade, end-to-end IoT infrastructure solution that allows IT and OT teams to have complete control of their IoT use cases, from the edge to the cloud.
In addition, the companies will showcase the integration of the Samsung Artik 530 with Liota (Little IoT Agent), a vendor-neutral open source software development kit developed by VMware, to help enterprise customers with the management, monitoring and securing of their IoT implementation.
While Samsung Artik Smart IoT platform provides customers with all the upfront IoT hardware and software they need to kick start their IoT developments, VMware will help manage IoT infrastructure from the edge all the way to the cloud.
The combination will provide an end-to-end solution, including the hardware and software components, security, cloud connectivity, building services, and ability to monitor and manage the products over the product's lifecycle.
"Being able to monitor and manage these (IoT) solutions across devices at enterprise scale both on premise and in the cloud is critical for successful rollouts," said Curtis Sasaki, VP of ecosystems at Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center.
