Automotive supplier Robert Bosch and its recently acquired inubit business process management unit will present their first joint product portfolio at the upcoming CeBIT high-tech fair in Hanover.

Bosch, the world's largest automotive supplier acquired inubit last year in a move that underlined its high expectations for internet-enabled services.

In their joint stand, Bosch and inubit will show a combination of products for business process and rules management and other business solutions.

"The solutions of Bosch and inubit together form a product portfolio offering both multi-faceted and custom-tailored solutions”, said Heinz Derenbach, president of the executive board of Bosch Software Innovations.

The joint exhibit will have as its motto "Enabling business success in a connected world."

Bosch said CeBIT's own motto - "All things smart" - resonates well with the automotive supplier's focus on the "Internet of Things and Services." The company sees huge potential in providing technologies that will network the physical and digital world, in particular in the areas of electromobility, building security and energy management.

At CeBIT, Bosch and inubit will show Visual Rules, a platform for creating, managing and optimizing the specialized logic of a software application. They will also introduce release 6.1 of the inubit Suite software for business process management. This latest release allows the use of business process management for quality control.
Bosch, which posted an 8.8 pc rise in 2011 sales, said recently that it will intensify its activities in internet-based services. "While the classic hardware and software business will still be a main driver of growth for many years to come, Bosch intends to exploit the technical potential of internet connectivity more extensively than in the past," the company said in a press release.

The annual CeBIT fair starts March 5 in Hanover.
