  • 2

    months to realize first version of protected cloud storage

Aiming to reinforce its market leadership in the Benelux countries and break into new markets in Europe, Honeywell Customized Comfort Products (HCCP) needed a partner with expertise in the Internet of Things (IoT) and web connectivity. Smart, internet-connected products are being installed in an increasing number of buildings and houses. HCCP is responding to this Internet of Things (IoT) trend and has developed new functionalities for heating and ventilation systems in partnership with Altran. Altran’s IP based solutions have enabled HCCP to focus sooner on its go-to-market strategy.

Our solution

Using Altran’s existing solutions on a license basis, HCCP was able to dramatically reduce time-to-market. In fact, thanks to Altran’s Internet of Things Framework, which links product data to the cloud and makes it available to applications, the first version of protected cloud storage was realized in less than two months. Working in close collaboration, HCCP and Altran experts also created a demo kit for Honeywell’s OEM partners. One OEM partner is already selling the new ventilation system, which enables users to use their smartphones to communicate with their ventilation systems and provides system monitoring, service and maintenance. Building on the successful co-creation project, HCCP aims to expand cloud connectivity and storage to at least 100,000 ventilation systems over the next three years.
