IBM today announced its Bluemix cloud deal with Sogeti, a subsidiary of Capgemini Group, a leading IT service provider.
As part of the cloud deal, Sogeti will offer Bluemix, cloud platform-as-a-service (PaaS) from IBM, to developers and clients across 15 countries to integrate and analyze data.
IBM said Bluemix will assist Sogeti to build hybrid cloud applications across public, private and on-premise infrastructure faster.
Sogeti will utilize Bluemix to power existing end-user solutions for commerce, the internet of things (IoT) and data analytics for clients in retail, healthcare, transportation, and energy and utilities. Sogeti, using its smartEngine gateway, has already built a solution with IBM Bluemix for managing smarter buildings.
The Capgemini company can provide insights on the performance of their heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, lighting and other energy-producing processes to minimize energy costs, optimize environmental impact, and increase security.
Sogeti will use the same combination of its smartEngine and IBM’s Internet of Things service on Bluemix to provide insights on data for clients in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, agriculture, utilities management and more.
Andreas Sjostrom, vice president and global head of Digital at Sogeti, said: “IBM Bluemix Dedicated enables us to address concerns relating to data privacy, security and performance by offering dedicated servers and cloud data centers, while still offering the benefits of a cloud infrastructure, such as accelerated business speed, collaboration and visibility.”
