IBM and mimik technology have joined hands to build AI-enabled collaborative workflow solutions designed to help accelerate automation and digital transformation across manufacturing, retail, IoT and healthcare.
Through this alliance, mimik aims to extend IBM Edge Application Manager’s management of IoT and edge devices, and support for edge clusters by enabling the deployment of containerized workloads to mobile devices running on iOS, Android, QNX and Windows.
mimik will bring its hybrid edgeCloud platform together with IBM’s Edge Application Manager, which runs on Red Hat OpenShift, to enable devices with computing resources as well as the broad spectrum of Linux-based edge devices and clusters, to have containerized computing capabilities at the edge.
mimik’s hybrid edge cloud platform enables heterogenous devices, applications and processes with cloud serverless capability to autonomously communicate in small local clusters regardless of operating systems and networks.
The aim is for IBM Edge Application Manager to help manage these local clusters globally and create hyper connected ‘super clusters’ that can communicate directly or through servers and gateways regardless of hardware, operating system and networks.
