OnPoint Digital Solutions, a subsidiary of Koch Engineered Solutions LLC (KES), announced today a collaboration with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company and Koch’s preferred cloud provider, to co-develop an intelligent process optimization platform (IPOP). The platform–designed to enable OnPoint’s solutions–will utilize cloud and edge digital infrastructure to provide advanced machine learning and industrial computing capabilities for OnPoint’s connected ecosystem, enabling industrial operators and their preferred partners to integrate and act upon the best available knowledge anywhere, anytime, at scale.
Manufacturers worldwide are modifying operations to address the Industry 4.0 revolution and the associated infrastructure necessary to integrate smart technologies. This unique collaboration between OnPoint and AWS will leverage and complement AWS’s generally available infrastructure services, IoT, advanced analytics and machine learning. Together, the co-developed technology will help connect industrial companies with the solutions they need to optimize their operations in a variety of industrial verticals from oil and gas to food and beverage, electronics, smart grid, paper manufacturing, steel production and more.
“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us, and in the same way that we are teaming up with AWS to co-develop this software platform, we believe the platform will enrich our partnerships with KES customers through the digital application of our world-class capabilities,” said Dave Dotson, president of KES. “This collaboration with AWS seeks to transform the way KES partners with industrial operations, removing barriers and leveraging technology that connects operators directly with subject matter expertise to get more value from their data and make better, more efficient decisions in real-time. We’re working with a sense of greater purpose toward improved connected solutions across industries that will create value for our customers and society.”
