#2 Level Up Your Innovation
Innovation is the way to meet evolving customer needs and stay ahead of the competition. With SaaS in the cloud, you can have your own digital lab at your fingertips to run testing and solve production challenges without the risks and costs of conducting these activities in the real world.
Think of what you could accomplish with the ability to collaborate with ease, try new things quicker and at a lower cost, all while reducing the impact on existing production. SaaS in the cloud not only makes this possible, but also brings it within reach.
And with better data quality, increased computing power to correlate bigger data sets, and a single digital thread across the industrial lifecycle, there is significant potential for optimizing operations and taking future design iterations to the next level.
#3 Reimagine How You Support Systems
The cloud makes it possible to manage systems and equipment from anywhere and at any time. With this level of accessibility, you can manage, configure, and initiate connections to deployed equipment in a moment’s notice.
Being able to respond to production needs sooner means you can find solutions quicker, and doing so remotely means that you don’t have the costly travel time and expenses. Routine cloud-enabled remote maintenance makes the likelihood of emergencies even lower. But it doesn’t end there – this level of remote connectivity in the cloud can mean even bigger things for the future, including a more proactive model of support.
Data from the plant floor can drive decisions to improve productivity automatically. With context from the design, operational information can be used to predict and help prevent unexpected downtime and make operations more efficient while they are running.
This amounts to less downtime, increased productivity, and operational efficiencies to minimize waste, promote higher yield, and more. Which is especially beneficial for your operations that are the furthest away.
