Many machine manufacturers are currently facing their customers' digitization needs. The introduction of Industry 4.0 elements, transparency when it comes to individual machines and entire machine pools and the possibilities of predictive maintenance are strategically very popular with many manufacturing companies. Achieving tailor-made solutions for these requirements that can be offered in a standardized way is the goal of AXOOM.
This also applies to the cooperation with Konica Minolta. As a provider of comprehensive IT services, Konica Minolta helps companies optimize their business processes through workflow automation and implements solutions in the areas of IT infrastructure, IT security and cloud environments. That's why AXOOM came to the company's attention.
In order to make its product range future-proof, Konica Minolta has launched the so-called “Workplace Hub” as an all-in-one IT services platform. It combines hardware, software and a whole range of applications and services and thus becomes a small data centre. Using the Workplace Hub as an edge component, machines can be connected in the field without the need for an administrator or an own IT. AXOOM enables this connectivity solution for existing machines with networking software developed in-house.
