OVERVIEW
Due to Finder's steady growth in the market, Finder needed to upgrade its IT infrastructure to meet the requirements such as increase data availability and storage capacity plus ensure a robust business continuity plan. Any new solution also had to be scalable to match a future expansion of the business.
Finder, an Italian relay manufacturing company, has the widest range of world-wide quality approvals of any relay manufacturer with over 1,000 employees.
Working with Dell partner VAR Group, Finder’s new solution is based on three Dell servers with a Dell controller delivering a scalable, high-performance storage area network, which has an identical setup at a remote site for backup and disaster recovery.
Production data, distribution data, office data
IOT
Cutting Edge (technology has been on the market for < 2 years)
OPERATIONAL IMPACT
System Openness - Further application development and upgrade are possible due to an expandable solution.
High Acceptance - Better user acceptance with less operative training is required.
Data Aggregation - Cloud solutions enable aggregation of 'big data' to enable more robust analysis and lower costs.
QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
Energy consumption is cut by 50%.
Finder would be able to recover all data within 2 hours.
TECHNOLOGY
IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
Connectivity as a service as provided by telecommunications companies, i.e. data transfer, radio waves.
