Logicalis is expanding its capabilities and partnerships to bring Internet of Things (IoT) solutions directly to the manufacturing plant floor.

In addition to the development of its IoT practice earlier this year, Logicalis has forged new partnerships to deliver the end-to-end comprehensive solutions its manufacturing customers need for predictive maintenance, remote monitoring, asset and supplies control, operational tests monitoring, and workforce automation. These collaborations with new partners RoviSys and N3N, as well as long-established partners like Cisco, are driving growth for Logicalis customers.

“As companies are focusing on digital transformation strategies to grow their businesses, we’ve seen the need for advanced IoT solutions and analytics in the manufacturing space,” said Mike Trojecki, VP of Internet of Things (IoT) and Analytics for Logicalis. “While many manufacturing organizations recognize the benefits of IoT, they’re not quite sure how to approach an implementation. By leveraging our expertise in IT with our partners’ proficiencies in operational technology (OT), we are well positioned to deliver the solutions our customers need for further growth.”

RoviSys is an independent provider of comprehensive process automation, systems integration, and building management solutions. The RoviSys and Logicalis partnership will enable the companies to bridge the gap between enterprise IT and the manufacturing environment.

“Providing manufacturing customers with insights into their operational environments, safety and security, maintenance and engineering operations, and process optimization is necessary to provide value,” said John Cunningham, Director, Business and Industrial IT, RoviSys. “Partnerships with companies like Logicalis are critical because it’s almost impossible for one integrator to do this alone. Together with Logicalis, we’re able to provide complete outcome-based solutions in an Industry 4.0 world.”

N3N provides a visualization platform that enables remote access and control of manufacturing systems and applications via a centralized command center that can integrate data from traditionally closed systems. Logicalis will provide consulting, design and integration of N3N into manufacturing environments, providing customers with complete visibility and control across complex operations through N3N's real-time integrated view of a sensor, map, video and other application data. By leveraging the N3N for Manufacturing solution, Logicalis customers will benefit from video capabilities not available previously to provide sensor monitoring, and overall plant safety and security.

“In partnership with Logicalis, N3N's Unified Operations Command Control Solution for manufacturing will simplify the digital transformation process by consolidating existing disparate data sources onto a single pane with real time alerts and actionable insights for manufacturing organizations,” said Sandra Schlotter, VP Global Partnerships, N3N.

"Scale up" versus "scale out" doesn't just apply to hardware investments, it also has an impact on product features.

Network Packet Brokers play a critical role in gaining visibility into new complex networks. They deliver the packet data and information IT and security teams need to identify problems, recognize security issues, and ensure overall network performance. However, not all Packet Brokers are created equal when it comes to scalability. Simply "scaling up" your network infrastructure at every growth point is a more complex and more expensive endeavor over time. Let's explore three ways the "scale up" approach to infrastructure growth impedes NetOps and security professionals (and the business as a whole) ...

As a consumer, when you order products online, how do you expect them to get delivered? Some key requirements are: the product must arrive on time, well-packed, and ultimately must give you an easy gateway to return it if it is not as per your expectations. All this has been made possible via a single application. But what if this application doesn't function the way you want or cracks down mid-way, or probably leaks off information about you to some potential hackers? Technical uncertainty and digital chaos are the two double-edged swords dangling over this billion-dollar ecommerce market. Can Quality Assurance and Software Testing save application developers from this endless juggle? ...
