Apriso Drives Manufacturing Transformation

Apriso’s global manufacturing solutions powered by Microsoft technology are reshaping the manufacturing landscape

LONG BEACH, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 6, 2013 — Apriso, a leading provider of manufacturing software solutions, today detailed how products from Microsoft Corp. have strategically contributed to recently released versions of Apriso’s FlexNet Global Manufacturing Platform and FlexNet Manufacturing Process Intelligence (MPI) product line. Some of the key Microsoft technologies providing significant value are:

  • Windows 8 and Windows RT
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012
  • Microsoft Business Intelligence (BI) Stack

“Today, manufacturers need technology solutions that improve the basic economics of their plant floor operations, extend their operations on a global basis and provide visibility across their enterprise to the executive suite,” explained Sanjay Ravi, worldwide managing director for Discrete Manufacturing Industries at Microsoft. “Together, Microsoft and Apriso are driving manufacturing solutions to help improve manufacturing efficiency, quality and compliance at a lower IT cost.”

The use of Microsoft technologies has allowed Apriso to deliver exceptional value to their manufacturing customers:

  • Windows 8 and Windows RT expand mobility across operations – take advantage of easy-to-use touch interfaces to help improve worker productivity, data accuracy for greater product quality, resulting in operational efficiency
  • MPI using Microsoft BI platform unlocks greater value from Big Data – delivers manufacturing data into actionable intelligence, which can be acted upon in real-time to improve operational performance
  • Windows 8 tablets hardware footprint – the size and ergonomics make it ideally suited for deployment to the plant floor

“Windows 8, combined with low cost, touch tablets and the Microsoft BI stack, have helped expand the impact technology can have on manufacturing,” said John Fishell, vice president product management at Apriso. “The Microsoft BI stack has allowed Apriso to deliver out-of-the-box analytics and intelligence directly to manufacturing managers and supervisors without IT involvement.”

“Windows 8 and the Microsoft BI stack have also enabled Apriso to build the ultimate in executive consoles to provide management with clear visibility into their global operational activities, including the ability to direct immediate action,” continued Fishell.

As Apriso looks forward to future product releases, the company sees significant opportunities to include other Microsoft technologies such as Office 365, SharePoint and Azure and to expand Apriso’s ability to positively impact customers even further.
