Vancouver’s mimik technology is collaborating 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 – where server functionality is limited to servers in data centers and gateways – to a fully distributed architecture, enabling “client” devices to act as servers.
Through this relationship, mimik intends 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.
“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,” said Fay Arjomandi, Founder, President & CEO, mimik.
“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.”
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.
