M2M data to be stored on Oracle app servers
Siemens is announcing a new partnership with Oracle Deutschland GmbH for the joint development of corporate solutions in the field of machine-to-machine communications. This cooperative effort relates especially to the new line of business offered by Siemens: M2M One. With M2M One Siemens provides companies with tailored M2M solutions from a single source and uses, amongst others, ORACLE's application server.
Siemens uses the Oracle Application Server as the basis for developing a framework for M2M server solutions. These solutions ensure that data sent to the company from external machines and devices via GSM/GPRS communication is stored in an Oracle database and processed from there. With the aid of the Oracle JDeveloper as development tool and prefabricated modules, the framework for this can be adapted very quickly to individual M2M needs. "We are delighted to be able to support Siemens with our expertise in the development of the M2M framework", declared Werner Keller, Vice President of Sales at Oracle Deutschland GmbH. "The M2M market is highly attractive and we are hoping for further interesting developments in this field in cooperation with Siemens."
The two companies also intend to work together on the marketing of the new M2M One service offering. They are planning, among other things, a joint roadshow in Germany in the first half of the year in which companies are to be shown on-site the opportunities for boosting efficiency and reducing costs by using machine-to-machine communication.
"The M2M market has been highly fragmented up to now and there are many individual solutions. Together we are now striving to achieve greater standardization of M2M solutions on the server side", said José Costa e Silva, President of Wireless Modules at Siemens Communications. "Due to the presence of Siemens and Oracle worldwide we can offer our customers not only regional but also international implementation of their M2M solution along with global support which will include the server application."
