Zabbix out of the datacenter. Success stories in the retail and automotive sectors
How much does one minute of production downtime cost to my business?
This question is becoming more usual in companies. According to a study carried out in the USA, the cost per minute of line stop in the automotive companies costs the firms an impressive amount of around 22,000 dollars. On the other hand, a similar study focused on data center downtime yields an average of $ 8,000 per minute. Today it is of the utmost importance to ensure the operation of production lines for business stability, which gives us an idea of the current impact of IT technologies on industrial companies.
That is why the control and monitoring of both parts of the business, IT and production, must be unified. The idea is to "monitor everything" in the same system: software such as ERP, PLCs, robots, servers, databases, switches, and routers among others, as well as equipment security, especially today that all things are connected. The concept goes beyond the "connected production plant" or "smart factory" to become a "connected company" or "smart business".
LibreCon 2017: Business and Open Technologies Conference
Under this concept of "connected company", Muutech gave a speech within the framework of LibreCon 2017, which has been held this year in Santiago de Compostela. The program of LibreCon 2017 has been structured in two conferences and lectures of great interest, open technologies and success cases dedicated to the two fundamental axes: Industry 4.0 and the Primary Sector.
Our presentation focuses on the importance of offering a more extensive monitoring service than the classic monitoring of IT systems and networks. The differentiating proposal, which is in line with the concept of "connected company", is to offer a complete monitoring service, end to end, as well as to combine in a single proposal an industrial and IT solution. Unlike most companies that offer this type of services, the service offered by Muutech allows and is designed to be customized to each particular and individual clients needs, with a very personal and close technical and commercial attention, understanding his business and adding value to the solution.
Several cases of success, which Muutech has made in the real application in Galician companies of different sectors, have been highlighted:
