The Cloud platform Template in PowerPoint format includes ten slides. We will discuss those issues such as what is industrial internet platforms? What is the reason behind its development? The relationships are among IaaS, SaaS and PaaS. Top industrial manufacturing solution providers are now competing for the OS of industrial internet. Manufactures will experience what kinds of transformations with industrial internet platforms etc. As the same diagram PowerPoint template series, you can also find our Data Mining, Machine Learning, cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, Industry 4.0 and BlockChain , Digital marketing and other more PowerPoint templates.
Slide 1, Industrial revolution has evolved into the digital era
Since the beginning of Industrial revolution, the human beings have experienced the Mechanization, Electrification, Automation stages, and now the digitalization. Each revolution is the combination of industries and disruptive technologies, resulting in revolutionary efficiency dramatically increase. With the acceleration of digital network technologies, it is expected to witness reforms in our traditional manufacturing.
Slide 2, Cloud platforms are the combination of matured emerging technologies and industrial software, automation technology.
More and more cloud platforms have emerging in recent years, representing the latest industrial digital revolution. In this revolution, we can capitalize sensor technology, Internet of Things (IoT) technology, cloud computing technology and Big data technology, together with current industrial automation technologies and software creating a brand new business landscape.
Slide 3, Four Industrial cloud platforms compete for the operation system of IoT
GE, Siemens, ABB and Schneider have released their industrial cloud platforms successively in recent years, i.e. Predix, MindSphere, ABB Ability, and EcoStruxure. They position themselves as platform as a service (PaaS) suppliers, with a purpose of establishing their own IoT operation systems. Meanwhile they have cooperated with infrastructure as a service (IaaS) vendors, such as Microsoft’s Azure, Amazson’s AWS, IBM’ Softlayer and Google Cloud. Then the ultimate objective is to build an ecosystem to attract the third parties such as System Integrators and Software Companies to use these platforms to develop customized applications, that is software as a service (SaaS) for Industrial Companies.
Slide 4, What is the operation systems for industrial internet platforms?
For personal computers, Microsoft Windows operation system has dominated the landscape, followed by a fast distance position of Linux. Then Apple’s IoS and Android operation systems take the lead in smart phone era. So what will be the operation systems for industrial cloud platforms? GE which has promoted industrial internet platforms, Siemens which has proposed Industry 4.0, or others?
Slide 5, Business models of industrial internet platforms
What is the business model of industrial internet platforms? Significant efforts have been made for those industrial giants. What is driving force behind them? It is obvious to charge fee from the third parties to be the major source of revenue. Currently cloud platforms can charge based on the data traffic, the number of assets, the number of links, platform resource consumption, and software resource occupation etc.
Slide 6, The manufacturing companies can develop Digital Twin with cloud platforms
In addition to the actual production lines, manufacturers have enjoyed the capabilities of developing the virtual production lines in cloud platforms, which is described as Digital Twin. They will digitalize every link of the production line, from design, production, operation to sales, service, exchanging data with cloud platforms, benchmarking with accumulated industrial expertise, analyzing to optimize the efficiency of all links.
Slide 7, Smart services with industrial internet platforms
What are the new services resulted from cloud platforms? Firstly is the cognition service, which will enable every software solution to become as smart as Siri in its own scope. Secondly, it is the Machine learning service, which is the scientific study of algorithms and statistical models that computer systems use to perform a specific task without using explicit instructions. Last but not least is the Big data service, using flexible, smart and accurate methodologies to uncover the insight from the collected data.
Slide 8, Smart manufacturing transformations with Cloud platforms
There are three transformations when cloud platforms take shape. One is from the extensive management to lean management, which will lead to the great improvement of efficiency and reduce cost. The other is from automation to Artificial intelligence, that will dominated by predictability. Finally is from product to service, which will differentiate the manufacturer from the others by customized services.
Slide 9, The advantage of manufacturing companies
Manufacturers’ advantages lie in the Industrial expertise accumulated after years of practice. It is the most important thing to commercialize this valuable experience, instead of focusing on IT technologies and commercial models of cloud platforms. Manufacturers can take advantage of state-of-the-art technology and cloud platforms to boost the performance both in efficiency and effectiveness.
Slide 10, Ecosystem capabilities of industrial internet platforms
The winner of industrial internet platforms will be those ones of openness and compatibility, with more industrial users use these platforms, more developers and system integrators design their solution packages in these platforms, more applications developed to fit the needs of industrial manufacturers.
