Internet of things (IOT)

Sense > Analyze > Act

The Internet of Things (“IoT”) is about to revolutionize our lifestyles, our ways of producing and to deliver services. If one can consider our smartphones were among the first objects to be connected to the network, it is estimated that by 2025, more than 150 billion objects will be able to connect to each other, to people and to the Internet: temperature sensors, biometric sensors, smart meters, home automation devices, etc …

These different objects will allow us to connect our real world to the network and our information systems. It is more than likely that the latter will progressively evolve in order to be able to capture data produced by connected objects, filter it in real time, analyze it and react or collaborate with humans to react appropriately. The very same way they are asked to question their ways of delivering and sometimes their complete business models, companies will certainly see their hardware and application IT architectures challenged. Like the companies they fuel, these information systems will have to evolve into much more agile, distributes, and more abstractive models which can generate value quicker.

OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE

PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE

Detect performance degradations and enable a smooth orchestration of the maintenance to minimize their impact and interruptions on the production line.

FIELD SERVICE MANAGEMENT

Quickly identify and locate competent personnel, assign a task, provide the appropriate information and documents according to the task and the material involved, while providing a tracking of interventions

SMART FACTORY

Provide industries on-going transformation with technologies that will allow them to be more competitive, safer and more responsible: increased energy efficiency, better use of materials and production tools, optimized quality control, easy and sustainable maintenance, …

INTELLIGENT LOGISTICS

IoT solutions have a crucial role to play in transforming the logistics industry. Some of the benefits and opportunities of introducing IoT in logitics include: accurate inventory control, real-time visibility, damage detection, location and condition monitoring, product integrity, fleet management.

CONNECTED PATIENT

Collect data and evidences during clinical studies and in the post-marketing phase (Real-World Data RWD and Real-Word Evidence).

SMART RETAIL

Faced with the still vertiginous rise of e-commerce, retailers must transform themselves and transform the customer relationship: customer “in-store” localization and behavior analysis, intelligent inventory, reduction of waiting times, intelligent signage, etc …

FLEET MANAGEMENT

Identify and assign the equipment and vehicle which are the most appropriate to an intervention or delivery, follow the current intervention while already planning their future assignment.

EVENT-DRIVEN ARCHITECTURE

Event-oriented architectures automate processing in response to events of any type. These architectures meet the IOT needs of companies and can ease their transformation.
