Qualcomm has launched a new platform combining location technologies, sensor technologies and device management to help accelerate digital transformation across industries. 

The Aware platform combines a series of hardware and software technologies from a range of partners to create adaptable solutions that can be tailored depending on the use case. Existing partners include Microsoft, Cognizant, the Royal Bank of Canada and more, with the former providing its Microsoft Dynamics 365 suite.

According to the company, use cases for the new platform include cold chain distribution, utility asset monitoring, cargo shipment tracking, and warehouse and inventory management.

“The interoperability of software and hardware systems is key to delivering IoT solutions that enhance customer experiences,” said Ulrich Homann, Microsoft Cloud and AI corporate vice president. “Through the integration with Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, Qualcomm is providing customers with a seamless way to track assets, manage inventories and improve their operational efficiency.”

The announcement responds to ongoing operational inefficiencies seen in the wake of the pandemic, with the prior lack of supply chain visibility and asset tracking causing delays, spoilage and lost revenue. By providing location tracking and device management, Qualcomm said its Aware platform meets this challenge and provides a “critical piece” in optimizing supply chains. 

“The pandemic has highlighted the complexity and vulnerability of our global supply chains and the need for enterprises to modernize their operations,” said Vibha Rustagi, Cognizant’s global head of IoT. “The Qualcomm Aware Platform is a powerful intelligent edge solution that leverages differentiated services to accelerate digital transformation for multiple industries.”
