Overview

Today’s consumers have high expectations for the products we use on a daily basis, particularly when it comes to electronic devices. We want new products to come out faster, at lower prices, and with more capabilities than previous versions. But we also demand increased reliability with these products. Siemens PLM Software, a veteran in the enterprise manufacturing and supply chain space saw this trend and identified an opportunity.

Siemens PLM is addressing this with its supply chain cloud solution - OmneoTM- which runs on an enterprise data hub (EDH) from Cloudera. Based on conservative numbers from clients, customers have reported that utilizing Omneo has driven total annual operational savings between USD $15 and 25 million. The company has over 15 million licenses users and over 144,000 customers worldwide.

Solution

Omneo ingests machine-generated and existing system data from the manufacturing process, including clients’ own factory data in addition to data from their suppliers, field services, and after-market repair and re-manufacturing data. All of that data in its raw form is loaded into Cloudera, and from there it is transformed, contextualized, stored, and analyzed using various tools -- including MapReduce, HBase, and Cloudera Search -- to support different workloads.

One of our customers has about 9 billion records in the search engine which we can search in seconds.

Impact: Better Visibility, Better Products

Omneo’s supply chain product quality SaaS brings together data from end to end in the supply chain—from suppliers, manufacturing, equipment, field service, and repair/re-manufacturing operations—delivering a 360-degree view of the supply chain process in seconds.

The enterprise data hub delivers this raw storage format which is fault tolerant, redundant, and reliable. The different technologies that make the Cloudera offering so appealing is that the MapReduce, Search, and analytic storage frameworks make it possible for us to build our industry-specific solutions on top of it.

Impact: $15 to $25 Million in Annual Operational Savings

The increased business visibility provided by Omneo’s solution means that problems can be identified and addressed as soon as they start occurring, and manufacturers can spend more time resolving challenges and less time trying to pinpoint them, which directly impacts the bottom line. Siemens PLM clients report total annual savings between USD $15 and $25 million each conservatively, due to insights from its EDH.
