TechnoAlpin, an Italian company leader in snowmaking systems, has chosen Porini IoT 4 Manufacturing, a solution based on Microsoft Azure IoT & Machine Learning. The company needed a solution enabling data collection from different devices all over the world, managing and analyzing data and proactively predicting and suggest scenarios. The chosen solution proved to be effective for the company thanks to its scalability and performance.
“We started two years ago with an IoT project idea and we worked with Porini as a team to study how to build our data in the Cloud. The project aims to increase the plant efficiency and give us the opportunity to create new business models”
Says Markus Pfeifer, Head of Process Engineering snow making systems.
The deployment was quick and easy using Azure IoT and Data management services. Starting from a pilot project that considered hundred systems, we have now thousands snow guns connected worldwide. Large number of information are collected every 5 minutes from each device worldwide. Real time and historical analysis enable the company to improve the quality of services provided and drive the decision-makers in defining future developments.
