Catalyst Network Solutions for Manufacturing Companies
Leveraging technology to power innovation and fuel Industry 4.0
In the manufacturing industry, time is money. Manufacturers fuel economies by turning cutting edge concepts into real products. That’s why manufacturers are often at the forefront of adopting new technologies, leveraging ideas from other industries, and developing innovative solutions to address inefficiencies.
Leading manufacturers are taking advantage of strong IT partnerships to deliver on Industry 4.0—new automation trends including cyber-physical systems, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cloud computing, and cognitive computing—to differentiate themselves from the competition. However, a robust IT infrastructure foundation is essential to delivering on the promise of Industry 4.0: Resilient, ultra-fast networks and servers to manage data and business operations, flexible cloud platforms to respond rapidly in volatile market conditions, reliable backup and disaster recovery systems to protect your data and give you peace of mind.
As a manufacturer, you face lots of challenges. IT doesn’t have to be one of them.
The expertise you need, when you need it
Predictive maintenance, video analytics, industrial connectivity, OT, IT, and IoT integration, security, and remote monitoring are all critical to your business. So are the people who monitor and maintain your OT and IT systems. You need the best talent you can find with the experience and expertise your business demands.
