HPE Radically Simplifies Application Deployment in Manufacturing Plants
Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced a new platform that radically simplifies application deployment in manufacturing plants and unifies the operation of legacy and smart-factory applications. Express App Platform – Manufacturing is an on-premises solution that is integrated with Cloud28+, the world’s largest cloud aggregator, and allows manufacturers to accelerate digital factory transformation while avoiding disruption of their ongoing operation.
Digitizing manufacturing processes brings many benefits including operational savings, improved flexibility, and new revenue streams, but traditional applications such as Manufacturing Execution Systems are often complex and difficult to modernize. Conversely, applications hosted in the cloud can drive digital innovation, but also lead to data protection, cost, and latency issues. By hosting both old and new applications on one single platform in factory premises, the Express App Platform – Manufactur- ing eases the transformation and dramatically reduces the need for the separate hosting of legacy and bespoke applications.
“Traditional manufacturing applications support a stable, yet rigid automation of production processes”, said Volkhard Bregulla, Vice President, Global Manufacturing Industries at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “The Express App Platform – Manufacturing helps customers integrate smart-factory applications into their operations to create an adaptable factory without affecting the current foundation of their ongoing business.”
