IBM and Samsung have announced a collaboration to develop a technology that will further deepen business automation powered by edge computing for vast data analysis, 5G services for ultra-fast data transfer, and hybrid cloud solutions.
KC Choi, EVP, and Head of Global Mobile B2B Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, said the move to standalone 5G has fast-tracked the adoption of IoT solutions, thereby requiring businesses to adopt edge computing strategies that will allow them to manage their IT environments from anywhere.
Samsung will be deploying its vast 5G infrastructure alongside IBM’s cloud technologies, including its edge platform, integration services, and Artificial Intelligence products.
IBM’s general manager for communications business, Steve Canepa, highlighted that the synergy would enable the integration of business data with a variety of advanced applications, following the recent launch of the tech giant’s cloud platform for telecom operators deploying 5G built using technology from its software firm Red Hat.
