Immenstaad/Hannover – At CeBIT, the world's leading high-tech trade show, Bosch Software Innovations will be using the model of a city to demonstrate what the Internet of Things and Services (IoTS) can do and which applications are already out there offering companies and consumers a host of benefits. One of the features on show at stand D73 in Hall 11 will be the software suite that creates the foundation for our connectivity needs, allowing businesses to successfully implement new business models today.

Over the coming years, more and more devices and systems will have the capacity to send and receive data automatically over the internet. By making these systems compatible with one another and connecting them intelligently, we can open up a whole new range of services that will change the way we live and how we do business. Bosch Software Innovations already offers innovative business models and projects based on these possibilities:

Connected mobility: communication between vehicles and fleet operators allows fleet planning to be optimized using real-time vehicle data.

The virtual power plant of the future: intelligent management of a large number of decentralized energy generation plants and their connection to users.

Predictive maintenance: knowing in advance when machinery faults will occur means you can initiate the appropriate measures well before production comes to a standstill.

By picking up a tablet and holding it up to the architectural model, visitors will be able to see its houses, office buildings, factories, and wind turbines depicted on their screen, too. With the help of augmented reality, everyone can discover the potential of the Internet of Things and Services, and what advantages it offers particular target groups.

Another exhibit on the stand demonstrates how software integrated into an industrial machine recognizes the onset of mechanical faults and kicks off maintenance processes in good time, before the machine comes to a standstill. Users of such a solution – manufacturers for instance – stand to benefit in many ways. For one thing it allows better maintenance planning. What is more, it brings down maintenance and repair costs. And finally, this kind of predictive maintenance reduces downtimes, hence increasing productivity.

These solutions and future concepts are built on the Bosch Software Innovations software suite that will also be presented at CeBIT. It comprises our core products for Business Process Management (BPM), Business Rules Management (BRM), and Device Management (M2M). And for the special application fields of IoTS and BPM+, the suite's two editions allow efficient implementation of IoTS projects and new cloud services, as well as process- and rule-based enterprise applications such as risk assessment, auditing, and workflow management.

Device Management connects and manages all kinds of devices to achieve intelligent control in IoTS projects, with the software supporting a flexible authorization model. Since the product is based on advanced security architecture, end customers can feel safe in the knowledge that nobody can access sensitive data without permission. As Bosch relies on open standards for the software suite, expanding the products and solutions is essentially very easy – making them particularly suitable for use in dynamic business areas.
