The Corlina team came together in Menlo Park, CA recently to plan the company’s official launch in early 2018. Our team members are located across the globe, so it was both fun and productive to sit in a room together and brainstorm our go to market, product and channel strategies. Our goal: bring “trust as a service” to the millions of small and medium manufacturers worldwide that are building new and upgrading existing production facilities with smart factory technology.
Right now, Corlina is still in the early “pre-launch” phase, developing our product and working with key “lighthouse” manufacturing customers to get critical feedback on features and functionality. We can’t share names at this point, but this work has been critical in helping us shape the development of our product and our overall strategy.
The adoption of Smart Factories starts with the concept of “connected devices.” As new sensor-enabled devices, from cameras to PLCs to large industrial machines proliferate, the idea of the connected factory is becoming a reality. With that new reality come risks. Factory IT administrators, production supervisors, and plant managers need to know that these devices can be trusted on the factory network, and spot potential issues the moment something changes.
Corlina’s Smart Factory System of Trust will be the first system designed from the ground up around the concept of of “trust.” We envision a lightweight and non-intrusive solution, with a distributed SaaS architecture built for easy scalability and resiliency.
Manufacturers will be able to easily and quickly onboard, verify and monitor thousands of trusted devices on the factory network. Systems integrators and industrial equipment manufacturers will be able to use Corlina’s Smart Factory solution to make their equipment and services more valuable. Intelligence from the factory will be available to both OT and IT business leaders to drive smarter decisions.
Manufacturers are undergoing one of the biggest transformations since the dawn of the industrial age: using digital technologies to build and modernize their systems and processes into Smart Factories. To help them on their smart factory journey, several global initiatives have been launched: The U.S. has adopted the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) The production power-houses of Japan are focusing on the value of “Connected Factories” to bring about the next innovation in manufacturing (monodozkuri ). In Europe, Germany is leading […]
Manufacturers are adopting Smart Factory technologies that connect devices, production systems, processes and even entire factories in networked ecosystems that are more intelligent, adaptable and self-aware. The goal: actionable insights that can be used to increase productivity, make production processes more agile and generate new “outcome-based” revenue streams. But are smart factories secure? This digitization of the factory is part of an overall trend toward digital transformation that no modern industrial enterprise can ignore and remain competitive. However, moving from […]
