Nokia acquires SpaceTime Insight to expand IoT software portfolio

Nokia has acquired SpaceTime Insight to expand its Internet of Things (IoT) portfolio and IoT ana-lytics capabilities and to accelerate the development of new IoT software for key vertical markets.

SpaceTime Insight provides machine learning-powered analytics and IoT applications for some of the world’s largest transportation, energy and utilities organizations such as Entergy, Fed-Ex, NextEra Energy, Singapore Power and Union Pacific Railroad.
