Because of reasons like cost reduction, non-availability of replacements or re-certification issues companies often wish to keep their machines and equipment operational as long as possible. However, the increasing need to integrate them with modern production and business processes often forces companies to look out for alternative solutions. One often chosen follows the idea of applying upgrades to match the raised requirements. Our products support the upgrading activities in various ways.
Outdated devices often do not have or only possess legacy interfaces not suitable to be connecting with modern applications. Expensive and risky hardware-/software- updates are the common consequence. In this context our strategy follows the way of mounting embedded conversion modules relying on our middleware to the target devices. This way no modifications need to be applied and the device can be easily integrated with other systems.
Extend your machines an equipment using the latest IoT devices like sensors or GPS-tracker to monitor the current state and position of your assets. Get informed about the current workloads and the energy consumption and evaluate potential risk or maintenance scenarios. All of that becomes possible when integrating the data delivered by the IoT devices within your business processes and workflows. Our platform and middleware solution paves the way to inter-connect the IoT devices with your on-premise ERP-, process monitoring or additional cloud analytics systems.
