BlackBerry opens new ‘IoT Centre of Excellence’ in Hyderabad

Software company BlackBerry Limited announced a new BlackBerry IoT Centre of Excellence, Engineering, and Innovation in Hyderabad. By utilizing the BlackBerry QNX product portfolio and BlackBerry IVY in-vehicle software platform, the engineering centre will hire embedded software engineers to help develop the next generation of software-defined vehicles (SDVs) and advance innovation in other Internet of Things (IoT) industries.

By the end of 2023, the Hyderabad facility—which is planned to be the second-largest for BlackBerry’s IoT division globally after Canada—is expected to host over 100 software engineers across a wide range of technology positions and skill sets, including senior management, technical project management, product engineering, cloud software development, integration, and service delivery.

“India is an important market for local and global manufacturers in automotive and IoT sectors—particularly in Hyderabad, an ecosystem of engineering talent. This facility will help BlackBerry IoT to co-develop and co-innovate more closely with our customers and partners based in India, giving talented developers and engineers the opportunity to build the best solutions for complex problems for automotive and other embedded software industries,” said Mattias Eriksson, President of BlackBerry IoT.

BlackBerry IVY software development will begin in 2023, bringing developers and OEMs with operations in India closer to the innovation cycle and providing access to benefits such as optimized data processing via on-vehicle machine learning (ML).
