Get ready for the Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 is a reference to the fundamental changes coming with the so-called fourth industrial revolution where smart objects and humans will interrelate through an elaborated chain of gears reporting data to a server systems, more and more often empowered by artificial intelligence, all combined to shape our tomorrow world with a better use of assets and resources, be it for public or for business purposes.
With its Internet of Things (IOT) experience, Solution Ally routinely advise on the best available interfaces (or gateway) between the real world (machines and/or people) and the Cloud. Such role implies successfully collecting concealed inputs (meter data, human ID’s, GPS positioning, etc.) from the targeted subjects and conveying these data through medias (wired or wireless) to a dedicated remote system (smart grid, payment platform, tracking portal, etc.) where data will be processed.
We are witnessing an acceleration of innovations addressing this exponential-growth market. This acceleration in turn is hardening vendors selections already existing with severe complexity. Many new concepts with attractive advances, but which one to rely on for the next 5, 8, 10 years and sometimes even more? Difficult choice when hypothetical enhancements flood R&D engineers with further benefits at an ever-accelerating rate, almost by the day. Moreover, if that main choice was not hard enough, how to make all parties of a multi-vendors system to cooperate with one another technically, commercially … successfully?
This is where Solution Ally steps in.

We can help
Solution Ally positions itself as an upstream player of the final design. Because a solution can only achieve … a realistic aim, it is essential to know what data will be collectable, right from the start before fancying any theoretical yet unworkable outcomes. For that motive, we partner with hardware specialists (devices manufacturers) and CTO’s carrying at least 20 years in the industry, not less.
Solution Ally position itself also as a network solution provider (when possible) with management services to ease data collection. Indeed, a communication media should be kept as transparent as possible for the final system. In that spirit, we would handle the transport of data between the sensors and the cloud to reduce worries of your operations.
Delivering & Cooperating
Once data could be delivered to your servers, remaining complications are yet to be addressed. Staff training, devices field deployment and commissioning, operational processes, equipment maintenance with life cycle management, continuous improvements … there is a lot to refine for a system to deliver its purposes for its selected life-time.
Helping patrons with dependable vendors to achieve their objectives in a pragmatic manner is how Solution Ally was founded.
