About IoT-Based Solutions
The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the billions of physical devices around the globe that are now connected to the internet, gathering and sharing data. It promises extraordinary connectivity among people, places, and things, inspiring innovative changes in many sectors, including manufacturing and distribution, and providing smarter actionable business analytics for smarter business decision-making.
Thanks to inexpensive sensors, affordable connectivity, scalable cloud platforms, and the immense storage and processing capabilities of big data platforms, the IoT offers state-of-the-art solutions for supply chain operations, with processes and applications never thought possible.
The incredibly fast real-time analytics generated by these systems provide your company with operational visibility that:
- Improves speed and delivery timeframes
- Reduces the time employees waste while searching for missing assets
- Provide real-time insight on shipment environmental conditions, e.g., cargo temperature, humidity levels, etc.
- Ensures product integrity and the quality of cargo in-transit
- Helps you troubleshoot anomalies and quickly mitigate the risks if something goes wrong
- Complies with complex regulatory requirements related to the condition of shipments
- Improves customer service with more accurate pick-up and delivery information
- Improves cost management through data analytics
Asset Tracking/Monitoring Solutions
IoT devices and systems are helping manufacturers and distributors track and monitor global shipments more accurately and reliably than ever before. Many solutions involve sensors and digital devices that send data to a server on a regular basis (typically every second). This quickly leads to vast amounts of data that needs to be stored, analyzed and visualized.
SenseIT IoT by Domain utilizes innovative sensors to capture data from around the world, standardizes, consolidates and maintains it in a SAP HANA database in the cloud, and pushes the data to ERP. It enables you to remotely track assets in real time, both in-transit and at facilities, alerts you to condition changes, and helps you address problems related to improper handling before damage is irreparable.
SenseIT IoT currently measures:
- GPS Location
- Tilt Axis X
- Tilt Axis Y
- Tilt Axis Z
- Impact Shock / Drop
- Broken Seal / Tampering (Planned; not yet available)
SenseIT IoT by Domain works with various types of sensors. If we do not support the sensor you use, we can most likely add it to the SenseIT interpreter. If your company is not on an SAP platform, SenseIT IoT can also be integrated with other ERP platforms.
SAP solutions that incorporate IoT device connectivity can be one of the most transformative investments your business can make.
