ClearBlade, an industrial Internet of Things (IoT) platform and edge computing software company, has announced that it plans to collaborate with IBM to deliver Edge IoT asset monitoring for near-real time asset management. The ClearBlade Edge Asset Monitor solution integrated with IBM Edge Application Manager, which runs on Red Hat OpenShift, offers a secured out-of-the-box bundle for managing containerised edge-based applications on any hardware.
ClearBlade Edge Asset Monitor is highly configurable with no coding required. Combined with IBM Edge Application Manager, it can offer a seamless and automated deployment of edge applications to available enterprise edge compute. The solution will also be integrated with IBM Maximo to collect near-real time data into enterprise asset management and analysed with artificial intelligence at the edge, powered by IBM Watson. This can allow for a single system of record in the enterprise that is enriched with quality data and can be acted on with intelligent automation.
“Edge IoT Asset Monitoring provides tremendous value for the rugged demands of industries like rail, aerospace, mining, and agriculture. This combination provides an unparalleled digital capability for understanding how assets are used, where they are, where they have been, how they are maintained, and how they are utilised,” said Eric Simone, CEO of ClearBlade. “By integrating our industry-leading solution with IBM Edge Application Manager, we can help companies better understand how their businesses are executing and how they can be optimised.”
ClearBlade’s Edge IoT Asset Monitoring solution provides flexibility for thousands of assets to be tracked across aerospace, mining, railroad, construction, shipping, and logistics industries. ClearBlade supports non-powered, fleet tracking, and open environment use cases with a no-coding required interface. ClearBlade provides broad enterprise digitalisation strategies as application logic is seamlessly streamed and processed from both the edge and the cloud.
“We look forward to collaborating with ClearBlade as part of the IBM Edge Ecosystem,” said Evaristus Mainsah, General Manager, Cloud, Cloud Pak and Edge Ecosystem, IBM. “Together, we can help customers in asset-intensive industries further accelerate their digital transformation by enabling them to act on insights closer to where the data is being created, at the edge.”
ClearBlade is joining IBM’s edge ecosystem, an initiative designed to help equipment manufacturers, networking, IT and software providers implement open standards-based cloud-native solutions that can autonomously manage edge applications at scale. IBM’s ecosystem of partners fuels hybrid cloud environments by helping clients modernise workloads from bare-metal to multicloud and everything in between with Red Hat OpenShift, the industry's leading enterprise Kubernetes platform.
