Hitachi Solutions America, a leading provider of global industry solutions powered by the Microsoft Cloud, has announced the latest version of its IoT Service Hub. This update provides the same powerful remote monitoring, predictive analytics, and autonomous decision-making capabilities as before, but new utilities make it faster and easier to deploy.
Built on Microsoft Azure and Dynamics 365, the Hitachi Solutions IoT Service Hub now features a host of functionality that speeds and simplifies client projects. Most notably, the digital transformation platform now includes:
- A New Deployer Package – This helpful feature streamlines the implementation process, helps maintain consistency and control, and ensures best practices.
- Asset and Device Cloning – This simple set-up capability speeds and automates sensor registration and connection for large deployments and makes it easier to upgrade or make changes to existing setups.
- Clean Up Utilities – An array of new organizational and administrative features enhances implementation efficiency and productivity and saves time and resources. The new tools help quickly and easily:
o Update the rules to Azure Storage Blob devices
o Register IoT devices
o Configure the Azure app service
“The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the manufacturing and field service industries. With it, companies are no longer limited to managing the maintenance of production assets based on equipment age or usage to stay ahead of costly issues,” said David Bishop, Senior Vice President and Head of R&D at Hitachi Solutions America. “Our IoT Service Hub allows industrial equipment clients to connect and monitor their assets and analyze the data in real time, delivering capabilities that transform their asset performance management model from react and replace to predict and prevent.”
The Hitachi Solutions IoT Service Hub is a SaaS, or self-hosted platform for aggregating, analyzing, and acting on real-time telemetry data.
