Keeping up with manufacturing’s changing dynamics

Manufacturers face many challenges in order to remain competitive in today’s rapidly evolving business environment: identifying new revenue streams, running more efficient operations, scaling resources to meet changing demands, and using the vast amounts of available data to make better business decisions. As the pandemic continues to linger and impact industrial operations around the world, many manufacturers are pursuing digital transformation with greater urgency to ensure continuity of their operations and keep pace with changing dynamics.

HPE GreenLake: Empowering transformation to meet digital demands

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) makes vast amounts of data available to manufacturers; the challenge is to transform that data into insights to uncover inefficiencies and support competitiveness. HPE GreenLake offers workload-optimized services that enable faster access to data and insights, combining the automation, agility, and economics of the cloud with the security and performance of on-premises infrastructure. IT can now deliver a modernized solution that is adaptable, scalable, secure, and streamlined to provide business efficiencies from the shop floor to the executive suite.

Support strategic priorities with agile infrastructure

While the cloud appeals to many manufacturers, gathering IIoT-based real-time insights requires on-premises solutions. HPE GreenLake offers the best of both worlds, providing on-premises IT infrastructure delivered with the flexibility and economics of the public cloud.

Gain faster access to data and insights

One of the greatest strengths of the IIoT is that it enables the use of data to manufacture more quickly, predict failures, reduce unexpected downtime, and increase automation. HPE GreenLake offers integrated solutions that speed decisions, insights, and innovations while reducing complexity.

Scale resources to meet demand

To respond to changing market conditions, manufacturing IT has to support production bursts, new product or factory spin-ups, and facility expansions. With scale-up-and-down flexibility and a pay-per-use model, HPE GreenLake makes it easy to ensure the business has the IT resources it needs.

Ensure IT availability while keeping data secure

The need to reduce unplanned downtime in a plant extends to its IT infrastructure. With services built in, your HPE GreenLake solution is monitored and managed for you, with the protection of on-premises infrastructure for your valuable design, product, and production intellectual property.
