IBM IoT MessageSight has always been a part of the Watson IoT Platform family of products and we have now announced a new name in order to make this clearer. IBM IoT MessageSight is now “IBM Watson IoT Platform – Message Gateway”.
IBM IoT MessageSight has always provided the MQTT messaging that underpins the Watson IoT Platform and that will, of course, continue with the new name that brings it closer to Watson IoT Platform portfolio.
In addition, the bridging capabilities introduced last year mean it has never been easier to use IBM WIoTP Message Gateway as a local MQTT server and forward messages between it and the Watson IoT Platform in the IBM Cloud.
A rebranded version of the software featuring the new name will be available on February 28th, 2019.
