Today, all you hear about is data, data and more data. It is becoming increasing critical for leading manufacturing organization to have the ability to access, analyze and manage the vast amounts of data to stay competitive and ensure profitability.
Today’s challenges from increased competition, complex regulatory requirements and heightened safety demands are putting pressure on the manufacturing industry. How can organizations face these challenges and excel in this competitive environment?
Azure IoT Edge is an Internet of Things (IoT) service that builds on top of Azure IoT Hub. This service is meant for organizations who want to analyze data on devices “on the edge” vs “in the cloud”.
Successful ERP evaluations and implementations are essential for long-term profitability and performance of an organization. ERP software has been around since the 1980s and their purpose is to manage end-to-end business processes.
Reaping the benefits of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is about measuring just about everything in the factory of the future. As we enter the Industry 4.0 era, where computers and automation are coming together in an entirely new way, with equipment connected remotely to systems equipped and ready with machine learning algorithms - the benefits outweigh the concerns in many facilities worldwide.
Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a form of wireless communication that uses radio waves to identify and track objects. Today, RFID tags are being attached to a variety of “things”: pharmaceutical products, clothing, identification cards, even farm animals are equipped with a tag so they can be identified beyond doubt along the whole supply chain. RFID Tracking is one of the areas that is making manufacturing intelligent.
The industrial internet of things, or IIoT, is defined as “machines, computers and people enabling intelligent industrial operations using advanced data analytics for transformational business outcomes”. We are now in the middle of the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0 where smart, connected devices and technologies are transforming how products and equipment are designed, manufactured, maintained and ultimately used.
The Life Science industry includes organizations in the fields of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biomedical technologies and in general, organizations and institutions that devote the majority of their efforts in various phases of research, development and commercialization.
There used to be a time when a cloud-based ERP solution was to be avoided at all costs. Now, however, people realize that moving data and applications to a reputable cloud vendor makes more sense and isn’t the end of the world as it was once perceived.
Many organizations have made investments in digital transformation with the goal of gaining improvements, making work repeatable, removing waste and increasing value for customers – but how many can say that this goal has actually been achieved?
