The Adoption of Cloud-Based Solutions

Many companies have already migrated to enterprise software in the cloud. As a result, enterprise and office productivity have been transformed with digital ERPs (Enterprise Resource Planning), HR solutions and office suites. Fewer and fewer people have word processing and spreadsheets installed on their physical computers or laptops. The benefits of autosave and sharing often provide enough of a reason to switch at the end-user level while the executive suite considers the capital vs. operational expenditure decision. In the factories, the adoption of cloud manufacturing execution systems (MES) has been slower, with on-premise applications still the dominant solutions.

  • Serve their customers better
  • Incorporate the capabilities of digital smart assets
  • Adapt to the market by establishing high-value processes

Even in the cloud, these manufacturing execution systems (MES) can collect and analyze high-volume, real-time data being collected from the shop floor. The result is improved performance and scalability, faster resolution of production-related issues and increased traceability.
