Supply chain & Logistics
Make business sense of real-time IoT and existing data
The root challenge in logistics and supply chain is the complexity of the environment in terms of the number of intermediaries, regulations, IT systems, and new technologies – or the low level of digitization. Olympe exploits your data from various sources along the supply chain and aggregates it into global dashboards and connected apps to provide relevant and actionable information to each user.
In this use case, the client is one of the largest container shipping companies that introduced smart IoT containers into their highly complex environment. The complexity comes from many factors: their legacy system, the number of stakeholders involved, and the problematic standardization of business rules in a case-by-case context.
If not strategically thought, adding IoT to the existing data mix would affect a tsunami of real-time information. Besides, despite using reputable agile methodologies, developing such innovative systems in-house was impossible because of the low speed and high cost of the company’s development cycles.
Solution – Control Tower
Olympe is unifying legacy systems and IoT technology to build interconnected real-time data-centric applications.
Aggregate key data feeds
The tech team worked directly with the business owners and succeeded in creating operational dashboards within 0.5 day.
The team integrated data feeds from both legacy and IoT networks in Olympe’s processing servers, enabling the company to create customizable dashboards, alerts, and apps along the supply chain worldwide.
Scaling on successes
We delivered an actionable operational dashboard after 15 days.
From day one, the MVP was in production, scaling up the cloud infrastructure and adding some features to make it fully operational.
By gluing together, the value of old existing systems with the latest real-time innovation, our customer leveraged its IoT technology for a higher business impact.
Their CTO commented:
“Before, I was notified each time anything happened to containers. Now, Olympe correlates alerts to business data to only identify anomalies and notify the teams accordingly.”
