The Internet of Things (IoT) has many facets in the electronics supply chain. One of these is in the benefits IoT has in streaming analytics in order to gather intelligence about production manufacturing. Such analytics offer a huge opportunity to improve the time-to-market and efficiency of global manufacturing services.
Because of this, Wipro and Software AG are teaming up in order to create a streaming analytics platform using IoT and other emerging technologies. The platform provides businesses with an edge by responding to events in real-time with unlimited scalability, the companies said.
Wipro has developed a streaming analytics based IoT platform based on its Wipro Looking Glass architecture framework. Wipro is using this framework in conjunction with Software AG’s Big Data Streaming Analytics product suite in order to give vendors a fast and easy entry into the business possibilities offered by IoT, Wipro said.
Intel recently developed an IoT factory automation platform in order to see if they could improve efficiency and productivity of industrial applications using real-time streaming of analytics. The result was that Intel was able to save $9 million in manufacturing costs using its IoT model by monitoring the output the factory and making changes on the fly before something broke and to improve decision making while manufacturing.
The Wipro/Software AG combined platform includes a real-time analytics engine, a real-time interface and mashup technologies that provide scale in high speed and big data environments for industries such as financial services, manufacturing, supply chain and telecommunications, the company said.
Audi Lucas, senior architect for connected products, manufacturing and hi-tech industries at Wipro, said in a statement that IoT poses a new challenge for designers and the architectures “can continuously analyze streaming data, make smart decisions in very short timeframes and intelligently evolve system behavior.” He added that businesses can use the platform then to reduce cost and take advantage of yield opportunities as well as “navigating around threats in real-time.”
