Client challenges that we solve

  • Do we have feasible opportunities to employ condition-based or predictive maintenance solutions?
  • In what ways can the company use IoT to better manage its supply chain?
  • How can we improve the way we present IoT data to end users so that it is more understandable and insightful?
  • In what ways can we use IoT data to modernize our platforms and create opportunities for innovation?
  • How would experts recommend the company best reconcile competing standards and protocols in IoT?

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions

IoT Platforms

Developing IoT applications and supporting data acquisition & aggregation strategies to fuel more effective data analytics. Ness helps clients determine and apply the most appropriate combination of analytics methods – predictive, real-time, cognitive, and machine learning – to better enable data-informed business decisions

Field Devices

Implementing solutions to enable effective data transmission between devices over constrained networks or IoT gateways, including Local Data Acquisition & Visualization, Wireless & Wired Communication, Local Data Reduction, and Physical Devices & Sensors. Ness has expertise in deploying the optimal communications protocols, defining what data can and should be processed locally or in the cloud, and the End-to-End (E2E) lifecycle and asset management of IoT sensors

Work in Action

Engineering a smart thermostat

We helped engineer a smart thermostat, enabling a Connected Home solution to collect and analyze data from smart meters, standard meters, solar meters and smart plugs. The solution integrates end-to-end data services with analysis to track energy consumption and alert customers of unusual and inefficient usage patterns.

Implementing condition-based maintenance

Our software engineers collaborated with a client’s mechanical engineers to create a condition-based maintenance application. The client’s inspectors and engineers can view operational data to determine maintenance needs to sustain machine performance and minimize downtime.

Building a telematics platform

We leveraged the Internet of Things, data analytics, cloud, and our Smart Mobility expertise to deliver a modern telematics platform for a client’s fleet managers. The solution included a redesigned, field engineer application workflow that reduced install times for on-board vehicle monitoring units from more than an hour to a few minutes.
