The trend of internet of things which has been growing incrementally due to smart hardware, to which the access is facilitated, and communication costs becoming more affordable creates a great revolution in products and business life. “Internet of things” means the capability of devices or machines connected to the internet to exchange data with each other through the internet. The fact that the things we use in our daily lives become smart and can communicate with each other brings many conveniences to our life. Our alarm clocks’ controlling our organizer automatically, waking us up according to the time of our first rendezvous, and ensuring that we wake up in a warm home by informing the heating system; our smart coffee machines’ being informed that we are approaching the office and ensuring that our coffee will have been prepared by the time we reach the office, are only some of the internet of the things applications that we will witness in the near future.
The internet of things which will help us live our daily life more efficiently and effectively is changing the business models of companies and influencing all the sectors from production to education, from automotive to retail. It is estimated that the number of the devices which are capable of communicating with each other and connected to the internet will reach billions in the upcoming couple of years. The organizations who first meet with smart products are getting the upper hand in competition by diversifying both their operations and the experience they offer to their customers as a result of the connection of those smart products with each other. In the upcoming era, we will witness the existence and communication of the smart and connected products in a total ecosystem, and therefore, the auto-management of this ecosystem.
As KoçSistem we ensure that the new generation business processes, which the companies establish with the support of smart and connected products;
During the 1st Industrial Revolution, the world was introduced to the invention of the steam machines. The harbingers of the 2nd Industrial Revolution were mass production and the use of electricity. As to the 3rd Industrial Revolution, the electronic and digital technologies became a part of the mass production optimization. Today, the world talks about the Industry 4.0 phase. Industry 4.0 means the reshaping of the existing production concept in the industry with the evolving technology. In this new method of production, there is a new approach emerging with the inclusion of various concepts and applications, such as Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of the Things, and Big Data, in the production systems, and therefore in the entire value chain. With Industry 4.0, the production facilities are transforming their machines, warehouse systems and equipment into global networks. In production, the smart devices work more efficiently by interacting real-timely with each other. Connected machines which talk to each other perform the quality control of the product and ensure faster determination of the errors in the production process. In smart factories, where this whole process is managed, the production becomes more productive thanks to big data analysis. As KoçSistem, with our Industry 4.0 approach, we offer you a smart factory concept we built with smart infrastructures, smart machines, and technologies necessary for smart employees, and rendered smart and connected with the technology of internet of things. Thus, we contribute you in benefiting from many opportunities brought about by Industry 4.0 to manufacturers, such as improvement and reduction of time in product development processes, increase of productivity in production, decrease in rates of waste owing to smart production systems, improvement in pre- and post-sales services through big data analysis integrated with CRM systems, and decrease in operational and warranty costs thanks to remote troubleshooting.
Each having become almost a technology company as a result of the opportunities brought about by digital transformation, organizations aim at attaining better results in their businesses with the vision of Internet of Things (IoT) by gaining competitive advantage through the analysis of data gathered from their infrastructures, assets and employees. As KoçSistem, we are continuing our journey of Internet of Things, which we started with the remote management of many devices, such as base stations, electric meters and production equipment, by presenting the vision of “Platform 360”, i.e. our Platform for Internet of Things. With KoçSistem Platform 360 internet of things infrastructure, we offer a platform solution which securely connects different types of things featuring different communication protocols with each other, systems and people.With Platform 360, you can offer a customer experience combining physical and digital experience by connecting your physical things with each other, and you can optimize your value chain through the automation of the processes of logistics, production and sales. Thus, you can gain competitive advantage through market-changing trends, such as Industry 4.0, and transformation of products into smart and connected product systems. With Platform 360, the efficiency and quality of production increase, transportation infrastructures become smart, assets can be managed remotely, and employees can work more productively in mobile and integrated digital workplaces. Within the scope of Platform 360 vision, while accomplishing projects that touch many sectors, we consider production, infrastructure and energy sectors as main pillars and we continue to facilitate our customers’ businesses with our products in these areas.Besides, with the R&D work conducted at KoçSistem R&D and Innovation Center, we shape the future of the technology of Internet of Things. Through Platform 360 Internet of things platform, we develop solutions customized for different sectors:
