CPS and the in-house user:
In considering the current operational space, or that which is somewhere between Industry 3.0 and Industry 4.0, it is important for the C-suite as well as frontline managers to understand exactly what constitutes a CPS threat, opportunity, weakness, or strength and to act accordingly.
Quickly, CPS is exactly as the name implies or that space in which physical, production-oriented activities meet with more nebulous, but no less important or powerful, sources of data.
But before the CEO and his/her team can make use of such data for key decision-making purposes, the amalgamated inputs from multiple upstream and downstream sources must first be made user friendly, easy to manipulate, and even easier to interpret.
This is precisely where and when the big data hangover or fatigue can set it should the firm have an inadequate database management system or similar ‘translator’ between inputs and outputs.
Enter ParceLive, which allows users to keep the customer-facing systems they are most comfortable with as outputs by simply using Hanhaa’s application programming interface (API) to make sense of the raw data.
Consider that many partners are already using this interlocutor as a means in which to make more robust their existing SAP, CRM, and CSS systems so as to make the transition to the latest industrial revolution not only easier on their end user, but seamless for their employees and management cadre.
