FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Robert Bosch, the world's biggest automotive supplier, said it has hired an expert in the "internet of things" from business software maker SAP.
The so-called "internet of things" refers to embedding computing devices in everyday objects.
Tanja Rueckert will join the company on July 1, and will become president of the Bosch Building Technologies division on Aug. 1, Bosch said on Friday. The division has 9,000 employees and generated sales of 1.9 billion euros ($2.3 billion) in 2017.
