Software Provider Better Leverages Big Data for Manufacturing Needs
January 1, 2016
Founded in 1998, iTAC Software AG (Internet Technologies and Consulting) provides Internet technologies for the manufacturing industry. This white paper describes how iTAC wanted to integrate business intelligence and analytics software into its Enterprise Manufacturing Execution System (iTAC.MES.Suite), which bridges the gap between planning and production. Doing so would offer its customers the greatest possible transparency and decision-making capability for production control and meet growing demands related to the Internet of Things (IoT). The solution iTAC chose was the unified architecture of the OpenText Information Hub (iHub).
Benefits iTAC has realized from iHub include:
- Secure access to big data and extensive analytics capabilities enhance KPI analysis and allow for more data-driven operations
- Customized reporting creates a clearer view of performance, enabling continuous improvement, increased transparency, better decision making, and sustainable advantage
- Support for IoT and Germany’s Industry 4.0 initiative contributes to smart factories
