Optimise Manufacturing Data Exchange to plan for supply chain disruptions, expanding operations or markets, and joint ventures

Data is the heart of your global operation

Through 2024, global 2000 (defined by Forbes’ annual ranking of the world’s 2000 largest public companies) Manufacturers will face an acceleration of Data Gravity intensity which is expected to increase by a compound annual growth rate of 144% globally1.

This explosion in data growth is coming from the need to participate in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), to compete with direct-to-consumer services, and to design for supply chain transparency. All these applications result in an increase in the number of data sources participating in the Manufacturing Data Exchanges.

To solve for Data Gravity, the IIoT ecosystem must operate ubiquitously and on-demand. And real-time intelligence will be used to change how Manufacturing companies create and deliver value to best serve customers, partners, and employees across channels at multiple points of business presence.

How We Enable Manufacturing Centres of Data Exchange

  • Secure, compliant data centres across 50+ metros

  • High-performance networks across the globe

  • 100% renewable coverage for US colocation and European portfolios

    Manufactoring Put your manufact data to work

    Put Your Manufacturing Data to Work

    Data exchange across multiple internal and external platforms can't be achieved with current backhaul IT architecture. To solve for these needs, the infrastructure must integrate core, cloud, and edge at centres of data exchange. This involves implementing a secure data-centric architecture at these points to work between supply chain, plants, and partners.

    Manufacturing Let your data collaborate

    Let Your Data Collaborate Like it’s a Part of Your Team

    The IIoT in Manufacturing requires a connected data community approach. It's important to consider cloud and content providers when adding new markets, evolving on-ramps, and building hybrid offerings. At the other end, there is a focus to meet the users or devices at their points of presence through connectivity providers. And in the middle, where the centre for data exchange occurs, will be a neutral and secure meeting place connecting these connected data communities.
