The Method83 Connection Manager, Access Manager, and Application Creation Studios already dramatically cut both the time to market and expense to deploy any IIoT solution. Together these tools speed application development, ramping quickly through the value creation steps of "Connect and Monitor", to "Manage and Optimize", and even to "Smart Product" quickly.
But, even with these integrated tools and processes, no two Industrial IoT implementations are alike, and special connectivity issues, data mining requirements, or other application nuances can slow you down. Leveraging IoT83's experts to get past these hurdles often is the most cost-effective and efficient path. Our team is deeply knowledgeable in the workings of the Method83 platform as well as in the most important IIoT use cases that have the biggest impact. In short, IoT83's Software Service will help you meet the challenges you face and get your application running quickly.
Examples of areas where IoT83's team can help are in the development of specialized connectors to 3rd party systems, interfacing to unique devices or control systems, creation of complex business logic and automation capabilities or even simply helping your team to map Industrial IoT best practices into your highest value applications.
The Method83 platform is a licensed platform designed for Industrial IoT scale, security, and tier-1 reliability. For each engagement, initial software service Sprints are included in the software licensing. In the Discovery Sprint our experts engage yours to prioritize high value goals - that will make a real impact - for immediate implementation. In the successive Sprints, IoT83 experts get your application up and running, build your initial "Connect and Monitor" capabilities, and familiarize your industry experts with the Method83 Connection Manager and Application Creation Studios. At this point, your team can use the foundation delivered in these Sprints, along with the Application Creation Studio tools to further develop your applications.
However, after working with our team on these initial Sprints, most customers line up additional Sprints to speed their time to market, leverage the IoT83 team's experience, our low-cost agile execution, and IoT83's IIoT best-in-class use-case experience, to solve particularly complex problems, connect the platform to legacy software applications, and more. Our approach is that of developers, not consultants, and for us, success is a working application and a fast ROI.
The IoT83 team has broad experience in applying Industrial IoT value creation use-cases to multiple vertical industry markets. IoT83 has established templates to handle Next Generation Network Operation Centers, Rule-Based Analytics to drive Fault Avoidance, as well as integration of existing and new IIoT sensors and assets to create extensive IIoT solutions that span the needs of operations, service, and new product or business application creation.
IoT83 has extensive experience in decomposing available data sources in order to establish the means to create Fault Detection, Prediction, and Avoidance solutions. With these solutions, operators can reduce service costs, optimize asset protection, and maximize operational up-time. Time-based analytics of system-wide data makes this possible, and the IoT83 team has established use-cases - that can be used as templates - across multiple industry applications.
Almost all Industrial IoT solutions can be greatly enhanced through integration with existing software applications. Often, IIoT value creation is greatly accelerated through integration with legacy applications that encapsulate a business' deep industry know-how. IoT83 has the experience to integrate legacy applications - and has the tools to port these applications to the cloud - to enable accelerated value creation through these combinations.
Effectively managing the nuances of different asset, sensor or hardware telemetry data formats, the protocols used to send this data, and securely connecting these assets (with root of trust methodologies) can drive time to market and time to value. Through the experience of multiple implementations, the IoT83 team has templates to re-use, modify, or augment, that simplify such deployment issues. IoT83 has experience with HTTP, MQTT, LoRa, WiFi, and multiple physical interfaces, and can establish secure access solutions depending on what the existing assets and hardware can support.
The Method83 platform's Application Creation Studios enable an operator's industry experts to create value immediately. But, by combining IoT83's team with yours creates a value creation catalyst. By combining IoT83's IIoT expertise with your team's vertical market know-how greatly accelerates the power and differentiation of your solution. Working together, your team will get first-hand knowledge of best-practices and a deep understanding of the Method83 Application Creation Studios, and you will realize the value of fast time-to-market and time-to-value from leveraging our experts in deploying your industry unique IIoT value creation.
