Rockwell Automation software announced a set of new capabilities for FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC. I have previously written about some other updates plus a renewed and expanded partnership between RA and PTC.
Enhancements to InnovationSuite include:
FactoryTalk Analytics now offers a comprehensive array of simplified data science capabilities for multiple personas—process engineers, data scientists, and citizen data scientists—and reduces analytics data preparation effort. New capabilities include end-to-end data orchestration with visual data modelling, open-stack connectivity, pre-built analytical templates, and self-service model deployment for a full-service customer journey.
The Rockwell Automation Digital Thread enables a collaborative workflow across product designers, production engineers, and OEM suppliers, optimizing the design process from the beginning. As data models born in the design phase are automatically used in advanced analytics applications, insights can be leveraged to achieve new levels of performance.
With the acquisition of Kalypso, Rockwell Automation now offers a full suite of consulting, data science, technology, business process management and managed services. With approximately 250 new InnovationSuite customers and a library of dozens of repeatable industrial use cases, the Rockwell Automation consulting and delivery services are a component of the InnovationSuite digital transformation journey to accelerate time to value.
Comments from executives:
“The need for digital transformation has increased significantly as our customers accelerate innovation, maximize workforce productivity, and optimize operations,” said Arvind Rao, director of product management at Rockwell Automation. “These new capabilities combined with our industry-leading partner ecosystem helps us extend our technology and solutions leadership, meeting our customers’ needs for simplicity, scale, and domain expertise.”
“We are pleased to be collaborating with the Rockwell Automation team on the next generation of our InnovationSuite offering,” said Don Busiek, senior vice president, strategic alliances, PTC. “As we help organizations realign their digital transformation goals to combat the current macroeconomic environment, we are confident that InnovationSuite offers the most comprehensive and effective way to optimize their people, products, and processes – empowering manufacturers to embrace their new normal.”
