Global Partnership Drives Digital Business Transformation by Securely Connecting Complete Ecosystems of People, Systems and Things 

Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq:COVS) and Tech Mahindra, a leader in digital transformation for the Telecommunications and Manufacturing industries, today announced that Tech Mahindra will be using the Covisint IoT Platform to enable digital transformation solutions across a variety of IoT initiatives - including smart cities, and the telecommunications and automotive markets. 

Through this partnership, there will be a focused solution building and joint go-to-market efforts around:
