BlackBerry Project Ion aims to help businesses benefit from the 'Internet of Things'

This week BlackBerry has announced Project Ion, which is designed to help businesses handle data generated from the ‘Internet of Things’.

Details are relatively vague, although the QNX platform for embedded devices - acquired by BlackBerry in 2010 - appears to be a key part.

The company is planning to develop a collection of resources as part of Project Ion, including a secure cloud-based platform from QNX to manage data from connected devices. It also aims to help create an ecosystem of partners, carriers and developers - and will form strategic partnerships as part of the project.

John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO of BlackBerry, said “As connectivity costs continue to fall and connected technologies become pervasive, a new market is emerging – the Internet of Things. Billions of connections, generating trillions of transactions and exabytes of data daily, will require platforms that can operate securely on a global scale. No other company is in a better position than BlackBerry to provide the technological building blocks, applications and services needed to enhance productivity, improve real-time decision making and deliver on the vision of the Internet of Things.”
