The road to ultimately becoming a smart manufacturing enterprise is paved with a multitude of challenges. It starts with the hurdle of connecting disparate devices and equipment and is followed by the management of voluminous streams of data, to building real-time actionable insights – all while scaling edge initiatives securely and consistently across multiple factory sites and locations.
Up until now, these challenges were not easy to address, and even more difficult to overcome. Help has finally arrived courtesy of the Dell Technologies Validated Design for Manufacturing Edge with Litmus solution.
The Dell Technologies Validated Design for Manufacturing Edge with Litmus is a solution that simplifies the path to smart manufacturing outcomes by:
• Streamlining deployment and integration from edge devices to cloud for faster time to value
• Powering live insights for OT, IT, and business agility with better, faster decisions
• Ensuring resiliency and security to manage at the global scale while minimizing disruptions
The benefits to customers are compelling, as they can immediately:
•Simplify deployment and integration from edge devices on the factory floor to enterprise applications in the cloud, for faster time to value
•Gain business agility with live insights using high-speed data connectivity with unconstrained edge storage, rich analytics, machine learning, and business KPIs, for better and faster decisions from OT to IT
•Scale up with resiliency and security by using a secure solution powered by a fast compute, high-availability HCI, to centralize management at global scale while minimizing breaches and disruptions
The opportunities for Partners are limitless since they can:
•Realize upsell opportunities for high-value solutions as customers expand edge initiatives
•Offer differentiated services with combined IT and OT expertise that are tightly coupled with customer outcomes
•Provide a trusted, single supplier service and provide comprehensive support throughout the entire IT lifecycle for peace of mind for customers
•Take full advantage of commercial benefits of the Dell Partner Program and growth rewards through tier progression that will boost profitability
Integrated into the solution is the Litmus Industrial IoT Platform, a premier IIoT application for connecting the edge to the enterprise to drive operational improvement. It is the only platform built to collect, analyze, and put OT data to work at the edge and across the enterprise. And when combined with powerful lineup of edge computing solutions from Dell Technologies – most notably Dell EMC VxRail and PowerEdge servers, along with Dell’s Edge Gateways and EMC Streaming Data Platform, partners have a validated Industrial/Manufacturing edge solution that is unrivaled in the marketplace.
