IP1409CA - Build v. Buy: A Case Study from BennitAI

BennitAI offers augmented intelligence for the manufacturing workforce, but before this became a reality, company leaders had to make the difficult decision on whether to build or re-platform. An early proponent of AI in Manufacturing, BennitAI recognized the power of data, analytics, and Machine Learning long before these concepts went mainstream. The company decided to invest significant time, money and energy to develop its own platform's back end inclusive of data connectivity, storage, and analytics infrastructure, with the goal to build a solution that seamlessly connected workers with the equipment and digital information they provide.

Ultimately, building the backend infrastructure proved too costly and the company re-platformed their solution. Attend this session to hear one company's journey from "shining star startup," building the next industrial software platform on their own, to leveraging the power of an existing IIoT platform to take their solution to market faster and with more capabilities. You'll hear lessons learned, best practices and the pros of leveraging an existing IoT platform to build your own solutions.
