ILS Technology enables the information-driven enterprise
Feb 18, 2015
ILS Technology, a Telit company, has announced enhancements to its popular deviceWISE Application Enablement Platform for the Industrial Internet-of-Things, adding upgraded Cloud Service capabilities that help redefine the information-driven enterprise - transforming manufacturing, energy and natural resources, transportation and retail transaction management with improved connectivity, real-time data that increase performance, reliability and competitiveness within factories, remote locations and across the entire supply chain.
"Visionaries have been preaching the benefits of the Industrial Internet of Things and its potential to transform entire industries and the way business is done for quite some time." according to Craig Resnick, Vice President, ARC Advisory Group. "The deviceWISE enterprise-grade platform from ILS Technology was developed to convert this vision into reality for its customers and continues to be selected by companies looking for a secure, application-proven and scalable solution for the Information-Driven Enterprise."
For over a decade, leading organizations have been relying on the purpose-built deviceWISE platform to connect and integrate their manufacturing assets and processes with their enterprise systems to improve operational efficiencies, save money, and reduce disruptions. deviceWISE supports popular PLCs from Siemens, Mitsubishi, Rockwell, Omron, Emerson and most widely-used production equipment, and is compatible with virtually any database, message queuing and application server system available, including IBM, SAP, ORACLE, and Microsoft. It also facilitates Cloud-to-Cloud integration with Google Cloud Platform, SAP HANA, or any other public or private Cloud. Using a simple click-to-configure portal, companies can easily move data to and from their enterprise systems and a wide variety of new and legacy production equipment from different suppliers, with different protocols and interfaces - thereby eliminating costly custom-programming, consultants and complex home-grown solutions.
Building on its legacy in industrial automation within the factory, the deviceWISE platform also provides seamless and secure integration with the Cloud for remote control and monitoring of business operations and equipment by company personnel or authorized third parties via web-based and mobile applications and dashboards. Cloud-to-Cloud integration lets companies improve operational efficiencies and create business innovation around collaboration, predictive maintenance and big data analytics.
Existing and new customers now also have full access to a new management portal and a range of added features and platform enhancements, including new actions and events, local database CSV import updates, transaction server updates, HTTP Transport Pool, mapping log event, expanded TR-50 functions and support for tunneling. In addition, several drivers have been added or updated and the list of deviceWISE-Ready Enterprise Gateway and Asset Gateway products continues to grow as more partners join the thriving deviceWISE Community.
"For those who are trying to figure out what it means to be an Information-Driven Enterprise, deviceWISE offers the unique combination of a proven industrial platform with enterprise-grade Internet-of-Things services that help drive instant business innovation and operational efficiencies," added Fred Yentz, President and CEO of ILS Technology. "Everything we do is focused on making solution deployment fast and easy for our OEMs and enterprise customers who want to capitalize on opportunities in Industrial Internet of Things."
The deviceWISE Cloud service is widely deployed around the world for monitoring and control, asset tracking, and field service of fixed and mobile remote assets and things across many industries. The platform has already been adopted by leading industrial OEMs and is supported by a thriving global deviceWISE Community of connected IoT and industrial gateways, network operators, system integrators and developers. The company also provides professional consulting services, integration support and extended maintenance - reducing risk, cost, time and complexity versus building in-house solutions.
