Maltese telecommunications operator Go is to provide its enterprise customers with value-added services using Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT platform.

The project enriches connectivity with an end-to-end offering complete with platform, connectivity and devices. Thanks to Cumulocity, an IoT platform originally built for the telco world, Go will realise several use cases for its customers, starting with asset tracking.

Cumulocity is a multi-tenant and open platform that offers device management functionalities supporting multiple types of connectivity and protocols.

In addition to the IoT platform, Go has added integration, which provides more than 300 connectors for agile cloud-to-cloud integration of third-party platforms.

“As the leading telecommunications provider in Malta, Go is always on the lookout for innovative ways to expand its service offering, while providing the best to our customers,” said Arthur Azzopardi, chief of Go business. “We understand that our business customers are increasingly seeking to leverage the power of data through IoT to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs and create new business models. Through this partnership, Go will accelerate its vision to provide best in class end-to-end IoT to the Maltese market and beyond.”

He said Go would also leverage the flexibility of Cumulocity to offer ad-hoc IoT to its customers operating in various verticals with specific requirements.

“We firmly believe that, through this collaboration, we will be providing our customers a unique, secure and scalable IoT offering in our market,” he said.

Giulio Ballarini, head of Software AG in Italy, added: “We are pleased to collaborate with Go in the creation of innovative IoT to support new high-value business models. Thanks to Software AG’s cloud technology, Go can accelerate the market launch of new IoT offerings with asset tracking, building management, smart city among others.
