Internet of Things
Getting you ready for a connected future
Organizations have always been striving to make business processes flexible and agile. Much of this has been made possible by mobile, cloud, big data and other powerful technology forces. However, with the emergence of the Internet of Things, businesses are able to combine these technologies, making way to a highly interconnected ecosystem. Be it providing better engagement, improving inventory management or promoting wellness of patients for healthcare organizations, IoT has definitely transformed the way we live and work. In the coming years, number of devices connected to the internet would only grow. In fact, it is predicted that 50 billion things will be connected to the internet by 2020. This expected surge in connected devices is sure to present unprecedented opportunities across industries and processes.
But, certainly, such connected devices can unlock new revenue streams only when harnessed in the right direction. Setting up remote systems and sensors is just the first step of the IoT implementation process. Right from proof of concept stage to the final roll out, IoT adoption is fraught with challenges. Delay in time to value for IoT implementation, scalability, security and difficulty in customizations are posing major hurdles to organizations.

Our Industry-Specific Solutions
IoT for Retail
Despite the steep and persistent decrease in footfall in physical stores, studies show that consumers still prefer shopping in brick and mortar stores to online purchases. Retailers who are reluctant to build and execute an effective IoT strategy makes way for competitors to utilize the situation. We help retailers utilize in-store sensors and video feeds to understand customer hotspots, in-store dwell times and purchase behaviour. By using RFID-tagged products, retailers can gain better inventory visibility and make automatic stock replenishment. With our IoT solutions in the retail space, retailers can experience the ripple effect of customer loyalty and drive better customer satisfaction.
IoT for Manufacturing
Manufacturers across all areas are been investing heavily in industrial IoT to create intelligent and streamlined manufacturing operations. It is estimated by 2020 manufacturers around the globe will invest $70 billion on IoT solutions. Right from transportation and logistics to automotive and utilities, manufacturers rely on us to make the difference. We help manufacturers harness shop-floor smart sensors to track assets across factories, optimize inventory management, and make autonomous decisions regarding execution of manufacturing operations. Our solutions enable manufacturers to analyze real-time machine data to undertake predictive maintenance at the right time.
IoT for Fashion
Fashion has been the only industry that has been slow in the adoption of technology. But, when leveraged in the right direction, the Internet of Things provides innumerable opportunities to fashion retailers. We enable fashion companies merge the power of real-time analytics with customer data generated by RFID-labelled garments to provide personalized shopping experiences. This can also protect brand name by offering product authentication to customers. IoT offers product traceability to prevent loss of goods and improved efficiency of supply chains. Textile specialists harness wearable technology and manufacture smart fabrics to improve the overall health and wellness of individuals.
IoT for Supply Chain
Expanding business functionality is not the only concern that enterprises need to address in moving to an industrial IoT environment. Manufacturers need to also factor in cost and industry reliability to make a successful transition. As embedded systems with IoT functionality make systems smarter, the burden of maintaining the integrity of supply chains comes along with it. Leveraging the blend of SMAC (Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud) technologies, our solutions help manufacturers make a smooth, inexpensive transition to the IIoT landscape. From fleet tracking and inventory management to improving operational efficiency and visibility, we provide end-to-end solutions to transform supply chain operations.
Be it any phase of IoT transformation journey -- whether you are toying with IoT ideas or have IoT challenges to overcome -- we can support you to achieve maximum potential with IoT adoption. We help organizations develop a road map, develop and execute the right IoT solutions for your business, ensure interoperable systems, and make a smooth transition to the IoT landscape. We guide our partners through the best route for an IoT-enabled business ecosystem, enabling them to become the Enterprise of Things. With our advisory services, we help companies address the complexity of IoT adoption in device management, application development, big data analytics, security, and scalability. Our advisory services help organizations to:
- Transform business process landscape with IoT
- Simplify the complexity in IoT installations and future-proof solutions
- Align governance, risk and compliance management with business goals
From smart home systems to wearables, IoT holds potential for innumerable real-world implementations. We work closely with clients across industries to enable smart retail, connected consumer packaged goods, innovative healthcare systems, and intelligent manufacturing. We utilize rapid application development tools and open technology platforms of Amazon, Microsoft, SAP and IBM Watson to bring to market robust apps that bridge the physical and digital worlds. We develop IoT applications that use technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy, Near Field Communication, ZigBee, among others. We provide end-to-end application development services that support multiple protocols and offer cross-platform support. Additionally, our skilled UI designers can create interfaces that are user-friendly as well as visually appealing.
IoT System Integration
Integrating IoT with various devices, complex functionalities, multiple communication protocols and networks is definitely laborious. Added to this, in most cases, workflow in organizations break with IoT installations -- owing to fragmented software and complex manual processes. This calls for extensive planning in IoT integration with legacy networks and applications. We help organizations in end-to-end system integration with IoT, giving due consideration to compatibility with existing infrastructure. We help organizations to integrate IoT with CRM, ERP, PLM and data warehouses to drive improved process efficiency and productivity from accurate machine data. Our seamless integration solutions leverage the power of platforms including SAP, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM and ThingWorx.
Even as the Internet of Things is poised to change the world in ways untold, businesses can unlock real value with IoT technology only with advanced analytics. This, increasingly, is about the capability to detect and act upon data that is freshly generated rather than gather insight from stored data. Powered by SAP HANA, our analytics solutions help organizations to generate instant alerts and signals from the noise of streaming IoT data. By using the right set of tools and technology, we help organizations reach its maximum potential. With our advanced analytics, we create a data supply chain that mobilizes data for faster analysis and extract them to build interactive, meaningful visualizations and dashboards.
