Bosch is launching its own cloud for web-based services. The Bosch Internet of Things (IoT) Cloud is designed to run various applications for its connected mobility, connected industries, and connected buildings businesses. The first cloud is located in Germany. The Bosch IoT Cloud comprises technical infrastructure as well as platform and software offerings. The supplier of technology and services will use it for in-house solutions.

From 2017, it will also be made available as a service to other companies. The software core of the Bosch IoT Cloud is the company’s IoT Suite. It identifies any objects that are web-enabled, orchestrates the exchange of data, and enables a multitude of services and business models. Big data management allows enormous amounts of data to be analyzed. Rules for automatic decisions can be stored in the Bosch IoT Suite such as when patterns of wear and tear should be reported and preventive action taken to service machinery. The Bosch IoT Cloud currently connects more than five million devices and machines.
