Samsung Electronics and VMware have announced a new partnership that will focus on devising simplified Internet-of-Things (IoT) solutions for industrial and enterprise customers.

Aiming to devise end-to-end IoT solutions to support both IT and operational technology teams, the companies will showcase the combination of the SAMSUNG ARTIK Smart IoT platform with VMware Pulse IoT Center. The combined offering gives both IT and OT teams the tools to better manage their IoT use cases, all the way from the edge and up to the cloud.

Mimi Spier, vice president, IoT, VMware, said: "VMware and Samsung have a common goal to help enterprises speed their time to market with their IoT initiatives.

"The SAMSUNG ARTIK Smart IOT platform delivers a state-of-the-art IoT platform, and we are collaborating with Samsung to help enterprises simplify their approach to deploying, managing, monitoring and securing their IoT infrastructure and connected devices."

Additionally, both firms will also showcase the integration of the SAMSUNG ARTIK 530 with Liota (Little IoT Agent). The latter a vendor-neutral open source software development kit developed by VMware, the combination with SAMSUNG ARTIK 530 will enable enterprise customers to oversee their respective IoT implementations.

Curtis Sasaki, vice president of ecosystems, Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center, commented: "Enterprises around the world are looking to develop and deploy IoT solutions to augment their product portfolio or expand into new markets. Being able to monitor and manage these solutions across devices at enterprise scale both on-premise and in the cloud is critical for successful rollouts.

"We are developing a joint go-to-market plans to address global enterprises looking for at scale, enterprise IoT solutions.  With mutual customers in key industrial and vertical segments, we believe we can jointly address the growing development, deployment, and ongoing management these customers are looking for."
