Bosch IoT Remote Manager is now available for the SAP community
SAP users now benefit from Boschâs cloud services for device management
The Bosch IoT Suite enables developers to rapidly build, deploy, and operate cloud-based IoT applications. Its cloud services are already available on the Bosch IoT Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and IBM Bluemix.
The suite's cloud service for remote management of devices, the Bosch IoT Remote Manager, is now also provided on SAP Cloud Platform. Companies that choose SAPâs cloud infrastructure for their connected solutions will benefit from the leading device management capabilities of the Bosch IoT Suite. This open-standard cloud service makes it possible to efficiently and sustainably realize high-volume IoT scenarios. Using the Bosch IoT Remote Manager, we have already connected more than 1.5 million vehicles and one million smart homes.
"We take our Bosch IoT Suite to the cloud environments where our customers have chosen to build their IoT solutions. For this reason, we aim to make our IoT platform globally available on multiple clouds." Dr. Stefan Ferber, Senior VP Engineering
Complementing the SAP offering for the Internet of Things
The Bosch IoT Remote Manager allows you to connect, manage, control, and update devices easily. It supports widespread device management protocols out of the box â including OSGi, TR-069 / TR-157, and OMA-DM. As a result, it is easy to connect any type of device, machine, sensor, or gateway.
What's more, the software is available for on-premises deployment (ProSyst mPRM) â or as a fully managed service (Bosch IoT Remote Manager) in global, public cloud environments such as the Bosch IoT Cloud, Amazon Web Services and, now, the SAP Cloud Platform. In short, it meets the unique requirements of our customers â regardless of their size, location, or industry.

Open IoT ecosystems
Bosch Software Innovations is committed to developing open IoT ecosystems. The company is likewise highly engaged in partnering with global alliances and players in the worldwide IoT market. In this way, Bosch Software Innovations can help make the connected world a reality.
Following this open strategy, Bosch and SAP have formed a strategic partnership for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0. Their joint approach promises to speed up manufacturing and logistics processes as well as increase the safety and quality of products and services for customers. To name only one example, Boschâs new Zenoway solution offers a complete portfolio of tools for managing fleets of forklifts. An interface shared with the SAP Vehicle Insights system makes it especially easy to manage even large forklift fleets. In parallel, both SAP and Bosch are engaging in the Eclipse IoT Working Group.
"Only those companies will succeed in the IoT that are able to collaborate in ecosystems. Only ecosystems provide the strategic basis for open platforms and interoperability." Rainer Kallenbach, CEO Bosch Software Innovations
