Use Case

Improving connectivity to factory assets and machine data

Manufacturing firms that have adopted the Industrial of Things (IIoT) as a part of their digitization strategy have shown tremendous benefit to productivity and efficiency. Firms that have been wary of larger capital investments in connecting machines have missed out on these benefits, putting them at a competitive disadvantage.

New connectivity capabilities and architectures now exist to extend IIoT capability in more cost effective and flexible manner, remaining hardware-agnostic. This enable more organizations to embrace a digital transformation within their manufacturing business without large scale capital expenditures.

We have a solution

A flexible microservices architecture enables easy deployment across your environment

This solution use case, provided by Atos Codex CIS on the MindSphere® platform, enables organizations to more easily connect to the Industrial IoT and related systems in a cost effective manner.

Arranged around 4 pillars of connectivity, CIS Smart Node software enables hardware agnostic connectivity.
