Cognitive IoT – Group Big Bet

IoT will soon be the single largest source of data on the planet – next year (2018) IoT sensors and devices are expected to exceed mobile phones as the largest category of connected devices. We work with IBM because our long-standing partner´s cognitive technologies are a clear differentiator.


The Internet of Things becomes the Internet that thinks with Watson IoT. Hence make Watson IoT platform the hub of your enterprise IoT.


Our Group Big Bet “Cognitive IoT with IBM“combines three streams: Digital Manufacturing, Connected Products, and Asset Management


Digital Manufacturing

  • Predictive Maintenance & Quality
    Capgemini’s Predictive Maintenance and Quality predicts potential breakdowns of industrial equipment or a machine through data analysis (self learning). Along with monitoring and controlling production process based on all collected data, it also provides real-time, fact-based understanding of asset performance and usage.
  • Cognitive Robotics
    Sogeti has developed a cockpit for Big Systems and Big IoT Systems leveraging IBM software and IBM Cloud solutions (Bluemix, Watson). We also presented one of our first implementations of Cockpit for Big Systems (CBS) and Cockpit for Big IoT Systems (CBIoTS) for precision farming with Drotek—a new solution for better analysis and control of crop production with improved efficiency and reduced environmental impact.

Asset Management

  • Maximo + IoT

Capgemini’s enterprise asset management plus IOT combine asset information with real-time data from asset and 3rd parties (e.g. weather) to dynamically adjust maintenance schedule.

  • Maximo + New add-ons

maximo along with new add-ons focuses on making the most of Maximo’s analytical add-ons. It also gives us an insight into Worker Health and Safety along with Asset Health Insights.

  • Smart Building

Capgemini has developed a platform and a methodology to help companies innovate in this new space, and to do it quickly and efficiently, focused on the following areas:

  • Conference room utilisation
  • Climate monitoring
  • Predictive maintenance of building equipments
  • Workspace utilisation
  • Recycle bin monitoring for work force planning
  • Bathroom utilisation and cleaning

Partnership with IBM set to make Cognitive IoT come alive

Capgemini Group becomes one of IBM’s premier partners, collaborating on the development of cognitive IoT technologies. This is an opportunity to drive significant business together, providing clear differentiators to marketing and sales in maintaining our position as a leader in digital transformation. had announced a major Internet of Things (IoT) “ecosystem drive” with new clients and partners co-locating at its global Watson IoT headquarters and expects to drive hundreds of millions of dollars in new revenue from IoT. Capgemini is joining IBM as one of its first partners on the journey to cognitive IoT, with an initial team of six technical and business development experts co-located in IBM’s new flagship customer experience centre in Munich.

Together we will help customers maximise the potential of Industry 4.0 and develop and take to market sector-specific cognitive IoT solutions.

Capgemini plans a close link between its Munich Applied Innovation Exchange and IBM’s new Customer Experience zones to collaborate with clients in an interactive environment.

"We decided to collocate Capgemini’s technical and business development experts alongside IBM’s in order to forge an even deeper relationship between two companies that will accelerate the digital transformation of our clients. Our people and clients will have full access to IBM’s technologies, experts and resources, thereby significantly shortening the time to market", said Fernando Alvarez, Corporate Vice President and Global Head of Strategic Initiatives and Partnerships.
