We live in a world where the only constant is change. Consumer tastes shift, operational demands evolve to keep pace, and the programs and processes you leverage to keep pace with it all need to evolve as well. That’s why today’s industrial operations platforms must be quick and easy to implement, but also be quick and easy to scale, flex, and grow.

As production environments become increasingly complex and interconnected, solutions designed to optimize the performance of those environments are evolving as well. Object-oriented programming has long been a mainstay of workflow and application development in the industrial sector, but the emergence of “low-code” and “no-code” solutions takes application development to a whole new level.

Designed specifically to put the power of application development into the hands of non-technical team members, no-code platforms make it possible for individuals to develop and refine highly-specialized solutions with minimal effort. In the hands of an experienced IT or engineering pro, however, its power is amplified.

The ability to quickly pull together solutions without relying on already overburdened IT resources means engineers, data scientists, operations professionals, and virtually any other role within an industrial environment can become more independent. It also means that data extracted from a predictive analytics platform can be used and reused in novel ways, unlocking the creativity and ingenuity of your team.

Our “Optimization for All” whitepaper unpacks this issue and much more. If you would like to learn more about the predictive operations platform assessment and selection process, download this powerful asset today!
