Collaboration Using Cloud-Based Omneo™ SaaS Solution Intended to Unearth Product Knowledge with Big Data Analytics, Identifying and Resolving Product Issues in Seconds
PLANO, TEXAS | MUMBAI, INDIA, MAY 16, 2016: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, and Siemens, (ETR: SIE) a leading global technology powerhouse, are leveraging their longstanding partnership to expand and enhance the delivery of big data analytics to the global manufacturing industry.
Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business will support TCS’ big data experts in the delivery and effective use of the Siemens Omneo™ Performance Analytics solution. By leveraging Omneo big data analytics, which is provided as a cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) offering, manufacturers will have the potential to unearth product performance intelligence that will enable them to identify and resolve complex product issues in seconds instead of days.
Omneo creates a complete big-data picture of product performance by connecting, unifying and contextualizing big-data sources – such as PLM, enterprise resource planning (ERP), manufacturing execution systems (MES), quality management systems (QMS), and customer relationship management (CRM) – into one easily accessible hub.
“Through its ability to analyze massive data combinations in seconds, our Omneo solution can help our customers reveal the hidden intelligence that pinpoints the source of product issues,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, Executive Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Service Delivery, Siemens PLM Software. “Combining the power of this cloud-based solution and our PLM expertise with the world-class IT services, consulting, business, and big data expertise of TCS, we can help more manufacturers worldwide leverage big data to significantly improve product development efficiency and innovation.”
TCS’ experience on the Omneo platform will bring extensive domain and global technology experience that will accelerate the process of continuous platform engineering and enrichment. This collaboration will build statistical tools and industrial solution accelerators to simplify and automate the processes on product performance intelligence.
“The rise of digital technologies including Big Data and the Internet of Things are driving radical changes across the manufacturing sector,” said Regu Ayyaswamy, Global Head of Engineering and Industrial services, Tata Consultancy Services. “Technologies like Siemens Omneo have the potential to revolutionize the manufacturing sector, giving businesses the ability to track and monitor product performance and then react accordingly.”
