Infor has made a new product available. It concerns the Infor Internet of Things (IoT), which is a multi-tentant implementation. The solution provides secure recording of IoT sensor data from any location. The data is then synchronized with Infor EAM Asset information, combining the data with transactional data of assets. This provides a deeper context.
According to the company, the solution also offers better detection of exceptions, workflows, reporting, data analyses and artificial intelligence (AI).
Infor IoT integrates with AWS IoT, enabling customers to take advantage of AWS’ scalability, stability, and security. The analyses are delivered via Birst, a cloud-based platform for networked business intelligence. It allows businesses to collect data from hundreds of thousands of IoT devices and model them in consistent metric frameworks. This enables organizations to track, analyze and improve operational efficiency, sales and compliance, and sales and marketing efficiency.
“With this IoT platform, Infor is enabling a step-by-step change in complex asset management. In this way, it can offer its customers something that was inaccessible in the past,” says Kevin Price, EAM Technical Product Evangelist at Infor. “With far-reaching improvements in energy consumption, efficiency and reliability of performance, organizations can understand the condition of a large number of assets in real time, by reliably aggregating different sources inside and outside a given implementation.
According to the company, in a traditional situation it is almost impossible to understand the condition of an asset. There, users have to keep track of a lot of data from both the past and the future. For example, bus companies need to overlay historical asset management, work management, reliability and sustainability data with data from external sources.
Infor offers the possibility to connect these data to EAM, IoT, ION and Birst, making this possible. It would also be easy to understand and quick to use.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
