Cumulocity signs ‘Charta of the digital Society’ together with leading technology companies including BMW, Bosch, Cisco, Deutsche Telekom, Intel and Oracle
The ‘Charta of digital Society’ was signed on October 21, 2014 in Hamburg, Germany, and handed over in person to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The 14 initiators of the Charta are Alstom, BITKOM, BMW, Bosch, Cisco, Cumulocity, Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Telekom, Hasso Plattner Institut, Intel, Oracle, RWE, VATM and Vodafone.
The objective of the Charta is to stimulate and broaden the dialogue about digital transformation and its impact on our society. This digitalization of society is already happening and it is changing the way we live, learn and work. Data privacy and security will become even more important with the emergence of the ‘Internet of Things’.
Internet of Things, or IoT, is about a rapidly growing number of devices, products and machines connected to the Internet. It is about enabling them to exchange information with each other and to communicate with people, no matter where they are.
“Cumulocity is the global leading Internet of Things platform provider for public and private cloud deployments. The industry Charta will broaden the public dialogue by highlighting the benefits of new technologies, and therefore it will increase the acceptance within our society. Cumulocity fully supports the Charta principles”, said Bernd Groß, CEO of Cumulocity.
