TechnoAlpin, an Italian company leader in snowmaking system, 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, manage and analyze data and proactively predict and suggest scenarios. The solution was suitable for the company thanks to the scalability and performance.
“We started two years ago with an IoT project idea and we worked with Porini 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 hundreds plants, 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 company to improve services and drive the decision maker for future development.
