Pronovias Group, a global business group that designs, manufactures, and sells wedding dresses and evening gowns, faced a unique challenge. The company operates six brands, each with its own online portal. Unlike traditional e-commerce portals, these websites serve as a gateway for customer relationships and as a booking point for in-person appointments, linking the online experience with the in-store experience. The challenge was to optimize these experiences and bring them on par with the personalized and exclusive service offered in-store. The online stores required fast and frictionless loading in users’ web browsers. Pronovias Group was looking for a universal solution for all of its brands that would facilitate the daily management of their online presence while allowing them to handle traffic without losing connectivity from anywhere in the world. It was also essential to protect the websites and distinguish between different types of requests to rule out all kinds of attacks.
About The Customer
Pronovias Group is a global business group that designs, manufactures, and sells wedding dresses and evening gowns. The company is headquartered in Barcelona and operates in 12 countries, generating €160 million in revenue. Its brands - Pronovias, House of St. Patrick, White One, Ladybird, Nicole, and Vera Wang - are distributed via 4,000 multi-brand points of sale in 105 countries and 102 single-brand stores. Each of these brands has its own online portal, serving as a gateway for customer relationships and as a booking point for in-person appointments, thus linking the online experience with the in-store experience.
To address these challenges, Pronovias Group partnered with Onestic, a Fastly partner specializing in the development of e-commerce and security solutions. They migrated Pronovias to a new infrastructure and gradually proceeded with the rest of the brands. Pronovias Group adopted Fastly’s technology for its customization options and the ability to run logic within Varnish, allowing the Pronovias team to organize, manage, and modify the delivery service rules when needed. To protect its endpoints and solve the primary issue of bot traffic, Pronovias adapted Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF. Its rate limiting abilities and filtering enhancements greatly reduced unwanted traffic without harming the performance of the different sites. Two other highlights of Pronovias adopting Fastly’s technology were GeoIP and Image Optimizer. GeoIP allowed tracking the source of each request for fine-tuning the identification of incoming traffic. Image Optimizer transformed images, eliminated latency, and reduced load times, which was crucial for Pronovias Group’s websites where images are taken care of down to the smallest detail.

Improving Production Line Efficiency with Ethernet Micro RTU Controller
Moxa was asked to provide a connectivity solution for one of the world's leading cosmetics companies. This multinational corporation, with retail presence in 130 countries, 23 global braches, and over 66,000 employees, sought to improve the efficiency of their production process by migrating from manual monitoring to an automatic productivity monitoring system. The production line was being monitored by ABB Real-TPI, a factory information system that offers data collection and analysis to improve plant efficiency. Due to software limitations, the customer needed an OPC server and a corresponding I/O solution to collect data from additional sensor devices for the Real-TPI system. The goal is to enable the factory information system to more thoroughly collect data from every corner of the production line. This will improve its ability to measure Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and translate into increased production efficiencies. System Requirements • Instant status updates while still consuming minimal bandwidth to relieve strain on limited factory networks • Interoperable with ABB Real-TPI • Small form factor appropriate for deployment where space is scarce • Remote software management and configuration to simplify operations
How Sirqul’s IoT Platform is Crafting Carrefour’s New In-Store Experiences
Carrefour Taiwan’s goal is to be completely digital by end of 2018. Out-dated manual methods for analysis and assumptions limited Carrefour’s ability to change the customer experience and were void of real-time decision-making capabilities. Rather than relying solely on sales data, assumptions, and disparate systems, Carrefour Taiwan’s CEO led an initiative to find a connected IoT solution that could give the team the ability to make real-time changes and more informed decisions. Prior to implementing, Carrefour struggled to address their conversion rates and did not have the proper insights into the customer decision-making process nor how to make an immediate impact without losing customer confidence.

Ensures Cold Milk in Your Supermarket
As of 2014, AK-Centralen has over 1,500 Danish supermarkets equipped, and utilizes 16 operators, and is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. AK-Centralen needed the ability to monitor the cooling alarms from around the country, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Each and every time the door to a milk cooler or a freezer does not close properly, an alarm goes off on a computer screen in a control building in southwestern Odense. This type of alarm will go off approximately 140,000 times per year, equating to roughly 400 alarms in a 24-hour period. Should an alarm go off, then there is only a limited amount of time to act before dairy products or frozen pizza must be disposed of, and this type of waste can quickly start to cost a supermarket a great deal of money.
