Bosch Software Innovations and MongoDB have announced a partnership under which the two firms will work together on big data solutions for applications involving the Internet of Things in the mobility, retail and supply chain and manufacturing sectors.
The partnership aims to support the development of applications that involve rich new sources of complex, real-time data from sensors and other connected devices, such as cars and industrial machines.
With the Internet of Things expected to see more and more devices become connected, solutions for collecting and making best use of the data these devices can generate will be increasingly necessary, according to the two firms.
Bosch Software Innovations is the software and systems arm of the Bosch Group, the German engineering firm that manufactures automotive parts and industrial machinery, and also developed the controller area network bus used in vehicles and for process control applications.
Meanwhile, MongoDB is the developer of the NoSQL database tool aimed at handling unstructured data, such as that gathered from sensors and other devices.
Bosch said that its software suite allows devices to be integrated securely into business processes on the basis of predefined rules, enabling a platform for connecting distributed things and devices.
The partnership will see this used in combination with MongoDB's proven scalability and dynamic data model, opening up the potential of the Internet of Things for customers around the globe, the firm said.
"The value of Internet of Things applications can only be fully realised when analysis is delivered in real time," said Bosch Software Innovations chief executive Dr Rainer Kallenbach.
"MongoDB's scalable, flexible and secure data management platform and our market-proven software suite for the Internet of Things will allow our customers to profit from a faster realisation of their business models, as well as rapid adaptions and enhancements that are imminent for being successful in the Internet of Things."
Bosch's software suite comprises core products for Business Process Management, Business Rules Management, and Device Management, and can be used in a wide range of Internet of Things situations, including mobility, energy, manufacturing, smart home, and smart cities, the firm said.
Bosch will showcase its portfolio at the MongoDB World show in New York on 24 June.
