Driving digital transformation to optimize operations and create new business models

INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT)

Our loT Practice helps organizations securely connect devices, processes, and people to create new levels of data integration and insight.

Today's companies are facing demands to deliver value to their customers in ways never before imagined. These demands are driving digital transformation initiatives across most organizations in an effort to fundamentally change the way they provide value to their customers. From optimizing operations to enhancing customer experience, these initiatives leverage technology to impact the business in ways previously unattainable. This is what enables leaders to transform their business and shift to new, disruptive models that often incorporate an IoT component.

Imagine a world of intelligent things, processes, and services all interacting together to provide people and businesses with enhanced experiences and optimized opportunities. It is these experiences and opportunities that are the driving force behind loT. This hyper-connected world presents the ability to create new insight that fundamentally changes the way we interact with the environment around us.

By securely connecting intelligent things, organizations can harness the power of data to create impactful insight and uncover new revenue streams or potential.

Areas of value creation

We can meet the IoT needs of any size organization across a wide range of industries….

Industrial IoT (IIoT)

Spanning multiple industries (such as manufacturing, utilities, transportation, healthcare, agriculture, and building management), the IIoT is generally focused around the connectivity of industrial control systems, automation, and sensors in these environments. The goal of the IIoT is to derive actionable insights resulting from that connectivity.  These insights are used to improve operational efficiency, provide increased visibility, and offer increased collaboration between humans and machines in a fully secured environment focused on system availability.

  • Examples of solutions that Arraya can provide in this space include:

    • Connected Manufacturing

    • Connected Machines

    • Fleet Management

    • Mobile HMI

    • Energy Management

    • Predictive Maintenance

Connected Things

According to Gartner, over eight billion connected “things” will be in use during 2017. Already up thirty one percent from last year, the number will only continue to skyrocket over the next decade. All types of sensors, tags, and monitoring systems are being utilized to improve organizations’ understanding of how the things in our world interact together.

  • Examples of solutions that Arraya can provide in this space include:

    • Fleet Management

    • Cargo Monitoring

    • Field Personnel Safety

    • Remote Asset Monitoring

    • Location Tracking

    • Agricultural Monitoring

    • Connected Field Service

Customer Experience

The IoT represents a huge opportunity for hotels, retailers, healthcare institutions, and other hospitality-related industries to recapture customer mindshare by adding value to their “in facility” experiences. Additionally, marketing-focused IoT initiatives provide for an opportunity for differentiation and increased revenue opportunities.

  • Examples of solutions that Arraya can provide in this space include:

    • Digital Signage

    • Remote Video Expert

    • Customer Dwell Time

    • Wayfinding

    • Self-Service Kiosks

    • Asset Usage Benchmarking

SMART SPACES

IoT is delivering improved experiences in the area of Smart Spaces as well. It is enabling building management systems to deliver more accurate and actionable information for improving operations, lowering energy utilization, and providing an exceptional tenant experience. Additionally, IoT is allowing for the improved efficiency and security of HVAC, lighting, fire/life safety, and security access controls.

  • Examples of solutions that Arraya can provide in this space include:

    • Video Surveillance

    • Smart LED Lighting

    • Energy Management

    • Environmental Monitoring

    • Access Control Systems

    • Structural Health Monitoring

IMPROVED INSIGHT

Unfortunately, ninety percent of data created in the IoT is never captured, studied, or utilized. And that is where the true potential of the IoT lies. It’s not just the devices that generate valuable data, but also the intelligence that is built to consume that data, analyze it, and generate actionable insights. Analytics is the key to creating meaningful insights from the plethora of data that comes in every day.

  • Examples of solutions that Arraya can provide in this space include:

    • Yield Loss

    • Predictive Maintenance

    • Video Analytics

    • Location Analytics

    • Streaming Analytics

    • Security Analytics
