As a consistent implementation of the Industry 4.0 concept, digital business platforms merge the relevant business applications from all areas of the company and merge all available data streams into a company-wide data pool (Data Lake, Big Data).
The digital business platform is supplemented by additional micro services, such as data stream analyses via the so-called IoT Hub, predictive maintenance, deep learning algorithms (artificial intelligence), speech recognition, geo-localisation, etc. This increases the flexibility of the systems as well as the possibilities for a holistic approach.
The different platform providers show that you have significantly improved your flexibility in terms of size, complexity and openness. A further asset in this context is the integration of suppliers, customers and other business partners. By mapping numerous or, as far as possible, all relevant systems, all providers now offer companies the opportunity to obtain a 360-degree view of their customers and their own company. On the cost side, almost all manufacturers of digital business platforms have attractive models that are geared to the number of users. The operation takes place mainly in the cloud, so that complex on-premise installations are not necessary.
Through our high competence in interfaces, implementations with all major manufacturers and numerous individual software projects, PTA is your ideal partner, both in the implementation and objective consideration of opportunities and risks, as well as in unavoidable updates and manufacturer loyalty.
