MUNICH. On CeBIT, Telefónica and Software AG present their joint product portfolio of complete Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions. Smart Business Solutions comprises all necessary components from one source: Connectivity, hardware, applications, and hosting. Thus, companies from all branches can individually develop their own M2M-solutions that perfectly suit their business models.
The Smart Business Solutions are presented on Software AG's CeBIT booth in hall 4, C11. The new solutions connect and operate machines for various applications: from vending machines and construction site lights to cooling containers. They distinguish themselves by extremely low implementation costs and a small effort for configuration. "With Smart Business Solutions, our customers can run their internal and external processes, procedures, and applications much more efficiently and cost-effectively", as Kai Brasche, Vice President Digital M2M at Telefónica Germany explains. "Due to this, cost-intensive or long IT projects are no longer necessary."

Model M2M applications fast, flexible and cost-saving

Smart Business Solutions can be realized without making a big IT effort and are particularly flexible and scalable. Because of their cloud-based application platform, new M2M solutions can be quickly developed and integrated into existing business processes or ERP systems. No particular knowledge is required by the companies for using it. Due to this, they acquire competitive advantages that contribute to optimizing processes and to long-term profit maximization. The users receive all information that is needed to optimize business processes from their machines in real time. For the visualization, monitoring, and operating of the data and procedures that are relevant for business processes Telefónica offers an intuitively manageable web tool of Software AG. This can be adjusted to the requirements of the customer as necessary. Smart Business Solutions are already used by a German provider of traffic technology. The Peter Berghaus GmbH is using it successfully for locating construction site lights via the Internet and to retrieve their operating conditions in real time. "Today, we are able to offer our customers an ideal solution consisting of hard- and software in order to being able to monitor their construction site lights they bought from us", says Ralf Gressler, Managing Director of Peter Berghaus GmbH. "Due to this, the reaction time in case of a malfunction of the traffic lights can be reduced eminently. Necessary maintenance trips can also be optimized by the new system." With Smart Solutions, the customers receive a comprehensive solution from one source: from connectivity, hardware and implementation to Cloud applications.
