The seamless integration of data along the industrial value chains will gain more and more in importance, becoming a key criterion for the survival of developing / manufacturing companies. The Digital Factory Division aims to provide its customers with a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software products which enable the comprehensive integration of data from development, production and suppliers. The complete digital representation of the entire physical value chain is our ultimate goal. We call the solution platform which we created for this purpose "Digital Enterprise". Under this term the DF product portfolio already smoothly connects major parts of the product and production life cycle today. Powerful Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software, for example, allows us to develop and optimize new products on an entirely virtual basis. In the real manufacturing world the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) concept, which has proven its worth for about 20 years now, ensures the efficient interoperability of all automation components. The TIA Portal, for example, already enables significant time and cost savings in engineering. In close cooperation with its partners within Siemens, and especially the Process Industries and Drives (PD) Division, the Digital Factory Division provides a large and unique portfolio of PLM software tools and industrial automation and drive technology tailored to meet individual customer requirements in various discrete industrial areas. In addition, DF customers can rely on the Division's commitment to the long-term development of their businesses. Protecting our customers' investments now and in the future – a particularly important consideration in the software business – is one of the major pillars of our business strategy. And when it comes to shaping the future of industry, DF is a driving and trendsetting force which joins with its partners worldwide in proven leading-edge technologies to increase productivity and protect a competitive edge.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the futuristic vision of everyday objects having network connectivity—and it's already happening: our phone communicates with our watch and our refrigerator, our car communicates with our address book. Emerson's Pervasive Sensing solutions are our industry's Internet of Things, and only Emerson has the wireless expertise and capabilities to make it happen: both the cutting-edge technology and the process domain expertise critical to analyzing data and recommending actions. The expanded view offered by a Pervasive Sensing strategy enables companies to gain actionable insights into areas previously unreachable or manually managed. A Pervasive Sensing strategy enables manufacturers to address these key areas with more and better data, strategic analyses and actionable information. When companies expand their strategy with more sensors, they easily take control of their plant and experience a considerable business impact.
In this connected world, the proliferation of intelligent devices has created a market for entirely new solutions based on Internet of Things (IoT) technology. With the ever-increasing amount of data that is inherent in an IoT world, the key to gaining real business value is effective communication among all elements of the architecture. Oracle’s IoT platform delivers an integrated, secure, comprehensive platform for the entire IoT architecture across all vertical markets. Its IoT solution allows companies to gain new data-driven insights and drive actions from IoT data, enabling their businesses to deliver innovative new services faster than their competitors, with less risk.
Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people. This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other. Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production. Bosch's software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows clients to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the Internet—essentially a "Connected Everything Platform." These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment. When objects can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them. IoT is connecting new places—such as manufacturing floors, energy grids, healthcare facilities, and transportation systems—to the Internet. When an object can represent itself digitally, it can be controlled from anywhere. This connectivity means more data, gathered from more places, with more ways to: increase efficiency, innovate in product development, increase asset utilization, enhance the customer experience, streamline the supply chain, and improve safety and security. Hitachi Consulting helps apply IoT solutions to drive business value, ultimately allowing companies to be IoT innovators and become an "Enterprise of Things." Companies can learn more about Hitachi Consulting's products, solutions and expertise and how they leverage the diverse product portfolio of Hitachi to help enterprises quickly get value out of IoT capabilities.
