Information is recognized as a business asset that can create real value. The magnitude of information is continuing to increase driven by the proliferation of data from the internet of things (IoT).
Manufacturers are especially affected by this new environment – the amount of product data produced on a daily basis has reached unseen peaks. Therefore Product Data Intelligence is becoming the tool of choice for discrete manufacturers.
We’re starting to see this aspect of a connected enterprise and their cyber/physical systems. However, it’s not only about machine and sensor data. Those are key tools where data is authored. The same is true for data being authored by employees within enterprise applications. Today’s business problems are not about creating more data or buying additional expensive and complex technology, but rather accessing the existing business data and gaining insight. Over the years manufacturing companies have spent a fortune on expensive CAD, PDM, PLM and ERP systems without ever gaining the promised results. Just imagine if you could release the business value that is trapped in these applications and other key data sources like spreadsheets.
Disruptive technologies like Actify Product Data Intelligence can help liberate your enterprise data and increase results without the typical costs! Actify helps create a network where manufacturing organizations can view, manage, and investigate product data with CAD Visualization, Data Discovery, and Data Visualization & Dashboards.
Product Data Intelligence facilitates data visibility and data usability. Having the maximum amount of information available to contextualize the current state of play allows managers to make the best decisions and improve business outcomes. However, value is not found, it’s made! Business benefits come from converting ‘accessibility’ and ‘usability’ into Value. Product Data Intelligence makes enterprise information meaningful to your users and your organization by managing it effectively.
Product Data Intelligence builds a rounded understanding of project, parts and data assets by uniting line-of-business systems and analysis tools. With extensive data source coverage across the enterprise, you can manage big data environments on-premise or distributed to provide a value-chain-centric information platform. The need for organizations to treat information as an asset will make Product Data Intelligence a strategic business tool.
The high-end customized offerings of Actify have not only helped businesses gain altitude but also have made them proactive with their businesses. Because deployment is measured in days, not months or years, as with more traditional solutions. Customers are reporting significant return on their investment from the deployment of Centro because of the greater insight to their existing data.
The associated benefits of Product Data Intelligence are illustrated above as a demonstration of value. Do not hesitate to contact us for a more information and a personalized demonstration of value for your organization.
We define our technology as Product Data Intelligence because today’s Business Intelligence solutions do not understand product definition information or handle the types of files that are synonymous with engineering and manufacturing organizations. Discrete manufacturers data is unique because your information assets include 3D models and 2D drawings with information hidden within CAD files (dimensions, eBOM, PMI, GD&T, etc.)
