Device Partner Program

The device certification tool represents the core of our device partner ecosystem. It is available to all device partners without any associated charges. This year, in March 2023, our certification tool celebrated its first birthday and since we implemented the concept of annual recertification, the first partners have already renewed their certifications. This way we can provide up-to-date information for Cumulocity IoT customers on pre-integrated hardware.

Since time to market is crucial the technical integration is a great basis for a successful partnership business. Certified hardware is recommended for all projects with Cumulocity IoT and is listed on the Device Partner Portal.
