Our Innovation Analysts recently looked into emerging technologies and up-and-coming startups working on solutions for the manufacturing industry. As there is a large number of startups working on a wide variety of solutions, we decided to share our insights with you. This time, we are taking a look at 3 promising Cloud Automation solutions.
Heat Map: 3 Top Cloud Automation Solutions
For our 3 top picks, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 3 interesting examples out of 359 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
Trinity Mobility – Sensor Network Cloud
The Internet of Things (IoT) sensors are being applied in every aspect of the manufacturing process, collecting a lot of different data points that need to be analyzed. The process of collecting and manually recalculating data using analytics is repetitive when different machines use the same data which is stored in different ways. A sensor network cloud provides a platform to consolidate sensor data from various sensors such as vibration, motion, light, and heat. Indian startup Trinity Mobility develops an all-in-one plug-and-play solution for deploying IoT sensors, collecting their data, storing in the cloud, analyzing the data, and providing notifications. This process reduces the repetition involved in the handling of data and allows manufacturers more time to focus on the insights generated from the data.
42Q – Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Cloud
Current MES systems are maintained on-site and not in the cloud because of the large amounts of data generated from the manufacturing process. This data cannot be transferred quickly and efficiently due to the high bandwidth and transfer rate requirements. Improvements in cloud infrastructure technology and the advent of 5G networks have removed these limiting factors for cloud-based MES. The US-based startup 42Q provides a cloud-based MES solution for manufacturers. Their solution allows tracking and control of all critical manufacturing operations without the additional cost of on-site computing infrastructure and storage requirements. The user interface can easily consolidate multiple MES actions to improve the efficiency of the overall manufacturing process.
Rootstock – Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud
ERP systems are used to handle all the day-to-day transactions of a business which make the very nature of the software very repetitive and manually intensive with an increased risk of errors. Having a cloud automated ERP system removes these problems and provides a huge saving in costs to its users. The US-based startup Rootstock provides cloud automated ERP solutions which are used in multiple industries. The versatility of their solution allows for a large portion of labor-intensive processes to be automated through the effective utilization of the cloud network.
