Crate ios Crateom to Enhance Operational Efficiency

By CIOReview | Tuesday, December 7, 2021

CrateOM transforms device data into meaningful insights, monitors equipment performance, lowers downtime, cuts resource and expense waste, and boosts overall efficiency.

Fremont, CA: The way a company runs changes as a result of digital transformation. This process includes systems, processes, workflow, and culture. This transformation affects every level of a business and brings data from many departments together so that they may collaborate more efficiently. Crate.io introduces CrateOM, a clever solution that turns process data into useful information. CrateOM can be used in the cloud, at the edge, or in a hybrid setup. CrateOM helps production businesses improve decision making and cross-functional cooperation by facilitating digital transformation through real-time data and in-app communications. CrateOM supports manufacturing complexity and enables firms to digitalize processes and streamline operations by running on CrateDB, an enterprise-grade open-source database built for huge data volumes. CrateOM is a software solution that avoids unexpected downtime, improves staff performance, optimizes resource utilization, and eliminates waste.

As part of their ALPLA Smart Production Program, the ALPLA Group, an international plastics producer, has teamed with Crate.io to create and administer CrateOM over the past four years across 20 German and American plants. They've been able to increase efficiency by simplifying operations, reducing time to resolution, avoiding waste, improving communication, and avoiding risks.

Crate.io CEO Eva Schönleitner comments,” ALPLA has been a great development partner in the creation of CrateOM. Together, we saw a need for a smart factory solution that would use the advanced functionalities of CrateDB on the shop floor. With the launch of CrateOM, we want to extend our value offering from data collection to enabling operational data analysis in real time across several plants. We also partnered with Microsoft to ensure CrateOM runs on Microsoft Azure as the primary cloud provider.”
