mimik technology collaborated with IBM to build AI-enabled collaborative workflow solutions designed to help accelerate automation and digital transformation across manufacturing, retail, IoT and healthcare.
mimik’s hybrid edgeCloud platform transforms cloud applications from a fixed client-server architecture to a fully distributed architecture, enabling “client” devices to act as servers.
To manage IoT and edge devices
mimik will 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.
Fay Arjomandi, Founder, President & CEO, mimic, said,
“We are excited to work with IBM and to leverage its expertise in hybrid cloud computing and software delivery solutions like IBM Edge Application Manager. Our collaboration will help customers across industries to architect transformative solutions that combine mimik’s edge cloud technology with IBM’s cloud and AI infrastructure to address the industry’s demand for digital transformation.”
While client applications are becoming more complex and difficult to develop, update and maintain, internet bandwidth and computing resources in centralized data centers are straining to manage the amount of new data coming from connected devices at the edge of the network.
To help address these challenges, mimik will bring its hybrid edgeCloud platform together with IBM’s Edge Application Manager, which runs on Red Hat OpenShift. mimik’s hybrid edge cloud platform enables devices with computing resources, such as PCs, smartphones, routers, game consoles, and IoT gateways and FreeRTOS sensors, the broad spectrum of Linux-based edge devices and clusters, to have containerized computing capabilities at the edge.
