Over the last few years internet revolution has presented Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and the users of devices that controls, detects, monitors, reads, or display with an opportunity to improve their solutions by delivering connected, integrated, faster, accurate and cost effective systems resulting in new business and revenue opportunities. The end users can now get a holistic view of their business processes and optimize.
OEM Manufacturers including low cost device manufacturers are reluctant to adopt Internet of Things (IoT) for their solution with the concern of increased cost or fear of adoption.
In most cases, OEMs who adopted Biz4Intellia solution has realized ROI instantaneously as the cost of IoT solution is offset by the cost reduction in redesign of the device. For example, a BLE device manufacturer can realize cost offset by not having a LED panel which can be replaced by Biz4Intellia IoT Mobile App solution which can deliver far richer interface than a LED panel at a cheaper cost.
The industry has started to embrace IoT and begun reaping its benefits. We help the industry transition from legacy to end-to-end wireless automated systems. Here are few areas of IoT adoption.
An OEM of these devices can easily adopt Biz4Intellia IoT out-of-box with its point and click install. This integration with enable these devices with the ability to remotely manage, monitor, and control. The ability to self-diagnose and predictive analysis reduces failure points, increases customer satisfaction, generate new revenue opportunities, and reduces operational costs. Imagine now all the devices talking to each other and taking advantage of information for each other devices – this can result in a staggering level of new opportunities and increased efficiency.
An OEM who uses these protocols already have the devices IoT enabled. Some OEMs have tried to build their own app. Over a period they have recognized the challenges of building, maintaining the application. Biz4Intellia IoT out-of-box implementation would be as easy as point, click and install. Not only OEM manufactures can take advantage of the robust, secured, monitored and maintained solution, they also can take advantage of custom look and feel to complement the product. Adopting Biz4Intellia enables OEMs to focus on their core competencies and device manufacturing.
The true benefit of IoT driven connected system can be realized when most devices engaged in business process are part of integrated system enabling a holistic viewpoint of the business process. Biz4Intellia offers custom services to engineer solutions that offers legacy to digital conversion. Biz4Intellia’s engineering team reviews the current legacy and analog devices, design, and incorporate appropriate sensor technology and advance you to the next level.
All OEMs already know that M2M interaction, industry 4.0, the internet era, and adoption of IoT is the only way to be ahead in this competitive world. The unprecedented advancements in technology have facilitated automation of business process and increased aftersales control of their devices. OEMs not only can monitor their devices, but also provide enhanced customer service experience, creates new business opportunities, better ROI. With advances analytics, now OEMs can focus easily identify the real utilization of their devices and thus can address any issues proactively.
As the world connects via smartphones and matured cloud technologies, the internet-based technologies are replacing traditional forms of controlling and monitoring systems. Many of our clients are already reaping the maximum benefits by adopting the Biz4Intellia, while still utilizing the implemented SCADA (System Control and Data Acquisition) systems.
What are the monetary benefits of implementing Biz4Intellia with SCADA?
It is difficult to quantify benefits of Biz4Intellia implementation along with SCADA in monetary terms. Our research shows that 70% to 85% of all initiatives provide direct benefit that can be measured by accounting metrics. These are typically cost reduction (for example head count) and maintenance cost prevention.
What SCADA is being utilized today is for the business benefits those are intact and well-proven but due to some inabilities of SCADA systems, we cannot avoid the technological advancement of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) solutions. Biz4Intellia is a well-proven IIoT business solution, which can co-exist with SCADA without disrupting the existing business processes.
The innovation of IIoT is causing the disruption among OEMs, Biz4Int4ellia has already provided an edge to many OEMs in USA and helped them attain business process integration. Biz4Intellia has put many capabilities on steroids like real-time data ingesting, predictive maintenance alerts, real-time control, data logging, data analysis, and visualization.
The full potential of SCADA can only be realized with the adoption of IIoT. – McKinsey
|Traditional SCADA||Biz4Intellia IIoT with SCADA|
|Standard Reports||Customized BI Reporting|
|Autonomous Commands||Aggregated Data|
|Alarms and Alerts||Valuable Data Generation|
|Supervisory Control||Prescriptive Analysis|
|Standard Dashboard||Personalized Dashboard|
|Servers Required on Site||On Site Equipment Not Required|
While SCADA’s focus is on controlling and monitoring equipment, IIoT focuses on analyzing machine data to increase operational efficiency and over the time, the IIoT will take over SCADA.
The SCADA systems lack:
Another drawback that the SCADA systems have is the lack of integration capability with enterprise systems. The existing SCADA system requires devices of same version from same vendor in order to integrate with them. On the other hand, Biz4Intellia can easily be integrated with many Enterprise systems and provide open APIs as out of the box capability.
Standard supported protocols by Biz4Intellia such as MQTT enables communication between platform and devices, even if they are from different vendors.
Biz4Intellia IIoT uses protocols Such as MQTTS, HTTPS or CoaP with TLS that help industries to stay connected or to get real-time notifications while supporting configurable multi-layer security features. Biz4Intellia IIoT solution, the next phase in the technological evolution of industries, offers a standardized, scalable, inter-operable solution without compromising the data security.
Business decisions are increasingly dependent on external context data obtained from various "big data" sources. The traditional practices of custom design and programming of data gathering for decision support and automation cannot handle the scale, speed and variety of Web-scale information sources. The basic logical model of an IIoT solution is arriving at a decision to act, based on information sent from an IoT endpoint.
The logical model of IIoT decisions involves some or all of the steps in the decision intelligence pipeline, including (not always in this sequence, some steps maybe repeated):
The decision pipeline can be triggered by the arrival of data from an IoT endpoint (an IoT event), or by a request from an application to pull data from an IoT endpoint. Each step may be enriched by considering the available context data.
