Asset-intensive industries face a range of challenges when it comes to ensuring critical plants and equipment operate at top efficiency and uptime. Disruption to service can lead to costly penalties, or worse, churn. It is estimated that unplanned downtime costs the industry over $50 billion a year. Businesses must understand how their products and assets are performing so that they can maximize their use and predict issues and failures.
Availability and uptime require monitoring IT assets like servers and switches as well as the ambient conditions around them
Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions fall short and can’t deliver features like cloud connectivity and predictive maintenance
Edge datacenters will require advanced monitoring and predictive maintenance solutions to reduce the cost of remote operations
Plant outages due to equipment failure result on average 22 thousand dollars per minute in unrealized revenue that severely impact the bottom line
Emergency equipment maintenance needs unscheduled support activities and costly parts
Current monitoring solutions use many incompatible communication protocols and lack data streaming
