Altizon and Cross Company ISG Team Up to Accelerate Industrial IoT Adoption and Digital Transformation
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. and KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Altizon, a global industrial IoT (IIoT) platform company creating connected intelligence for enterprises and Cross Company Integrated Systems Group (ISG), a systems integrator specializing in critical industrial controls and data solutions, today announced their plans to help accelerate the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and digital transformation technology for the industrial enterprise.
With Altizon’s Datonis®, the highly advanced Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform for smart manufacturing, Cross Company ISG will enable customers to quickly and more easily implement Smart Manufacturing initiatives, modernize Asset Performance Management, and pioneer new business models for service delivery.
The Datonis IIoT platform accelerates IT/ Operational Technology (OT) integrations by connecting diverse industrial assets and launching new applications over a hybrid infrastructure using edge computing, sensors, advanced in-stream analytics, and deep learning capabilities.
“Altizon’s Datonis is widely recognized and recommended by leading industry analyst firms, and is a massively scalable platform with support for device management, big-data analytics and machine learning with end-to-end security,” said Richard Consoli, President of Cross Company ISG. “Coupled with our 25 years of experience in design, implementation and systems integration, our alliance with Altizon will enable us to rapidly connect machines, devices and sensors – providing our customers with real-time actionable insights that deliver real value and ROI.”
According to a recent survey by Gartner, Inc., organizations are keen to integrate IoT and IT technologies (sensors, data stewardship, security and analytics) into OT systems. Since IoT deployment is still in the early stages, most organizations don’t yet have the skills, expertise or time to drive the IT/OT alignment requirements. Gartner predicts that 50% of OT service providers will create key partnerships with IT-centric providers for IoT offerings by 2020.
“At Altizon, we continue to accelerate frictionless deployment of IoT technologies across the industrial enterprise by partnering with a global network of systems integrators, the latest of which is Cross Company ISG,” said Vinay Nathan, CEO of Altizon. “With Datonis, companies can monitor and control all of their smart manufacturing systems while optimizing productivity of their personnel and economizing resources to bring their finished products to market with increased accuracy and at improved costs.”
