HCL Technologies has entered into a partnership with Microsoft to launch an incubation centre for Internet of Things in Redmond, reports the Mint. The incubator will focus on solutions for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, like healthcare, fleet management, industrial manufacturing and life sciences.

The companies are yet to reveal when the incubator will be operational, how many startups it will incubate, and if it will provide funding and to what extend. Interestingly, HCL had also set up an incubation centre in Noida in September last year, to jointly develop IoT solutions with IBM. This initiative would focus on solutions around remote monitoring, inventory management, smart buildings etc.

HCL currently offers end-to-end IoT solutions in partnership with Hitachi, IBM’s IoT platform, Intel, Microsoft, Tele2 etc., to various sectors including manufacturing, healthcare, utilities, logistics and transportation, mining and energy, and smart cities.
