Data is the lifeblood of the digital transformation. This is especially the case in operations, with its massive volumes and varieties of data ranging from machine sensors to enterprise resource planning systems (ERP).
Through IIoT, Industry 4.0 and the Smart Factory, data, connectivity and disruptive digital innovations are becoming even more important – for existing factories as well as for new plants.
With PA Facts we connect your physical manufacturing with the cloud to continuously increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your production, thus enabling the digital transformation of your production to predictive operations, prescriptive operations or even autonomous operations.
