CSC Unveils New Machine-to-Machine Solution

CSC unveiled today a new solution, OmniLocation® MachinEdge, that streamlines the development and deployment of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications, enabling developers in the manufacturing industry to create custom applications within days as opposed to months.

M2M connects physical systems with information systems, enabling the remote collection and analysis of machine data, such as equipment temperatures, energy use or inventory supply levels. Using this data, organizations can improve service and increase operational efficiencies. The ubiquity of wireless networks, the declining cost of devices and new government mandates are driving rapid adoption of M2M today.

“While M2M offers much promise, it is evolving quickly and remains poorly defined, making it difficult for organizations to capitalize on it,” said Doc Parghi, CSC’s director and general manager for mobility and social. “MachinEdge is a next-generation solutions development approach that combines CSC’s consulting depth, expertise in the manufacturing industry, and technical capabilities in big data, cloud and cybersecurity.”

Most M2M systems are currently tactical, point solutions and not well-integrated or enterprise-compatible. As a result, most organizations today select one of four suboptimal options: build from scratch; standardize on a single infrastructure provider; use multiple, segmented applications or outsource to a third party.

CSC’s MachinEdge solution provides a new option that enables developers to create their own enterprise M2M applications rapidly without changing work processes, hindering innovation or restricting data types and formats. The solution is built upon CSC’s OmniLocation software portfolio of mapping, scheduling and routing as well as enterprise visibility capabilities, and the ThingWorx™ platform for building and running applications.

“We continue to witness a groundswell of demand for cloud platform usage in custom application development, driven largely by the need to speed up application development lifecycles, empower IT to respond more quickly to business user needs, and in turn, shorten time-to-value,” said Peter Marston, research manager for analyst firm International Data Corporation (IDC).
