Smart Devices and Automation in Supply Chain

Smart Devices and the Supply Chain

Ivanti links smart devices to bring automation to supply chain operations

BY MIKE WHEATLEY  in SilicaonAngle

Ivanti Software Inc.’s supply chain business unit, Ivanti Wavelink, said today it’s extending its Ivanti Neurons platform to help companies automate and optimize their supply chain operations to drive more efficiency.

With the new Ivanti Neurons for Industrial Internet of Things platform, enterprises will be able to build scalable applications that integrate into existing processes to drive operational efficiency, the company said.

The security-focused Ivanti Neurons platform was launched in 2020, giving organizations a way to automate the management of endpoints such as employee devices. It works by mapping all of the devices on a corporate network, scanning them for potential issues and then automatically resolving what vulnerabilities, performance and compliance issues it finds.

Ivanti Wavelink said it’s now applying that same concept to the supply chain, taking advantage of numerous smart devices, including smart conveyors, sensors, cameras and robots. With Ivanti Neurons for IIoT, available now, companies can create low-code or no-code applications to link these disparate smart devices with existing systems in order to automate and enhance their supply chain processes.

The idea is that Ivanti Neurons for IIoT can help organizations to overcome problems such as labor shortages, poor distribution management and a lack of visibility that impact their supply chains, through increased digitization. A customer might integrate Ivanti Neurons for IIoT with Ivanti Velocity using the MQTT protocol for IoT devices, for example. By doing so, that will help them to create more automation for existing task-worker processes without needing to invest in expensive warehouse management system changes. The platform can also generate more insights on those processes..... '
