Case Study – AWS
LabSlice and Amazon work perfectly together. For LabSlice, the ability to deliver immediate and cost-effective benefits encourages their customers to stay with the product, which is crucial for a startup company. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been an integral part of LabSlice from the very beginning. When the idea of the startup was conceived, selection of the cloud platform provider was a major decision. Simon Ellis, founder and CTO of LabSlice, explains: “We needed a platform that was mature, reliable, and widely in use. Looking at the momentum and on-going success of AWS made this an easy product decision for our business to make.”
Case Study – Infosys
E.ON began its ServiceNow led digital transformation journey by first setting up a single consolidated platform as an internal tool for service management and then integrating all the other supplier tools into it. Infosys helped E.ON transition to the ServiceNow cloud based platform to modernize IT service management across the enterprise. Infosys powered the implementation with its Enterprise Service Management Café that helped standardize and reduce the overall duration of the implementation significantly.
CASE STUDY – Industry 4.0
CASE STUDY – Industry 4.0 Platform Helps Advance Smart Manufacturing Operations Logo Link leading global tool manufacturing company with multiple lines of business and more than 100 factories worldwide lacked visibility into production metrics, such as overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). With machines varying in age and complexity, and two fundamentally different types of facilities, few assets were instrumented with sensors that provided data analytics to management.
Our client knew it had a greenfield opportunity to transition cleanly to digital. Its objective was to create significant value—in the hundreds of millions—in the next five years as it moves from a focus on efficiency improvements to an Industry 4.0 platform that promotes connectivity and digital visualisation.
