"The world is becoming ever-more digital and IoT is the next step on that journey—delivering better customer experiences and helping organizations achieve a competitive advantage," said Bhagat Nainani, group vice president of IoT applications development at Oracle. "Oracle IoT Applications enable businesses to leverage connected devices and equipment to modernize the digital supply chain."
Oracle IoT Applications support three important functions: device registration and data collection; signal analysis and interpretation; and connection to specific business processes. By applying advanced, predictive analytics to the device signals, Oracle IoT Applications calculate complex business-specific KPIs and trigger automated actions in real time. The solutions can deliver capabilities, such as predictive maintenance, diagnostic dashboards, and increased real-time visibility, and can be applied to manufacturing, quality, and product data, as well as logistics and employee movements.
The new cloud applications integrate with Oracle Supply Chain Management (SCM) Cloud Applications to make IoT signals actionable and include the following products:
- IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud: Monitors assets, utilization, availability, and data from connected sensors and creates incidents in the backend SCM, ERP, or Service Clouds to automate the workflows
- IoT Connected Worker Cloud: Tracks employees to support safety, service, and regulatory compliance initiatives
- IoT Fleet Monitoring Cloud: Monitors position and progress of passenger, service, and delivery vehicles and driver-behavior
- IoT Production Monitoring Cloud: Monitors production equipment to assess and predict manufacturing issues
These aforementioned IoT Cloud applications are built on the Oracle IoT Cloud and Oracle Big Data Cloud. They integrate with Oracle SCM Cloud and Oracle Service Cloud, as well as on-premises software, to enable operational visibility, and facilitate better customer service and responsiveness.
"Noble Plastics is an innovative custom injection molding manufacturer that leverages robotics for automation. We see tremendous potential in IoT to drive predictive maintenance of industrial robots," said Scott Rogers, Technical Director, Noble Plastics. "Oracle IoT Asset Monitoring Cloud will help us in monitoring FANUC robots that are deployed on our plant floors and alert technicians proactively on their mobile device. This will enhance product quality, production efficiency and throughput while controlling costs."
