Transforming the myth of the Smart Factory into reality by reducing the implementation effort by 80%: the partnership between Zerynth and Davra is underway

September 27, 2021

On the occasion of IOTHINGS World, the Italian event dedicated to IoT technologies that takes place on 28 and 29 September in Milan at Mediolanum Forum, Zerynth and Davra announce their partnership that aims to ensure companies a fast, flexible, and secure digital transformation.

At a time in which digital transformation is a fundamental objective for the growth of the country and in which there are multiple opportunities for facilitation, from all the measures envisaged by the PNRR, it is essential to understand what the factors are that enable or slow down the innovation of manufacturing companies in Italy. The opportunities made available by Industrial IoT technologies and public incentives are often not seized by manufacturing entrepreneurs, who perceive a return on investment that is too distant or who, even worse, are unable to take advantage of the IoT projects already implemented. Among the main causes for these lost opportunities are: the investment costs in machinery are too high, the difficulty of integrating data from heterogeneous sources, and the inordinately long implementation times

“In fact, the Industry 4.0 revolution has not yet taken place: industrial machinery has an average life of 20 years, 27% of the companies have failed to introduce IoT technologies, and there are, on average, € 500,000 in annual losses per company due to the lack of integration between systems ”, explains Gabriele Montelisciani, CEO of Zerynth which supports companies in the digitization of industrial processes.

The partnership between Zerynth and Davra was born precisely from the desire to provide Italian manufacturing companies with an integrated solution capable of transforming the myth of the Smart Factory into a reality. This will facilitate the interconnection of data in complex environments such as that of Industrial IoT. Davra is a leader in the IoT field, included by Gartner in the “Magic Quadrant for Industrial IoT Platforms”, which allows System Integrators, Manufacturers, OEMs, and Public Administration to build IOT applications in a simple way. This saves 80% of the implementation effort thanks to the “developer-friendly” AEP (Application Enablement Platform) platform.

Thanks to this partnership, Zerynth customers will be able to send the data collected through their sensors to the DAVRA AEP platform and automatically receive them on the platform to be manipulated, viewed, and forwarded to other systems. At the same time, it will be possible for Davra customers to exploit the power and versatility of Zerynth’s embedded devices within integrated applications created on the AEP platform and take action on Zerynth devices.       

“Through this partnership, we aim to ensure companies a fast, flexible, and secure digital transformation supporting entrepreneurs as much as possible in the transition to industry 4.0,” explains Andrea Galizia, Director of strategic partnerships at Zerynth. “The Zerynth IoT platform allows you to digitize industrial processes through the acquisition of data, both from modern and old generation machinery, enabling interconnection and integration with company information and logistics systems in an Industry 4.0 perspective. Thanks to our partnership with Davra it will be even easier and faster to create IoT applications by integrating heterogeneous data sources from machinery and other company databases such as CRM and ERP ”. 

“We are very satisfied with this partnership which allows us to extend the flexibility of our platform and our IoT solutions to the embedded world and allows Italian companies to seize the opportunities of PNRR,” explains Paul Glynn, CEO of Davra. “The incentives for innovation are concrete, but it is necessary to provide entrepreneurs solutions with rapid implementation times that allow them to have a return on investment in the medium term, such as the one that arises from the integration between Zerynth and Davra”.

The partnership will be presented during IOTHINGS World, the most important Italian event in the field of IoT technologies, which will take place in Milan on 28 and 29 September in “Hybrid” format (both live and in online streaming).

It will be possible to learn about the opportunities for this integration between Zerynth and Davra by visiting the Zerynth and Davra stands. Furthermore, during the event, Gabriele Montelisciani, CEO of Zerynth, will take part in the panel “IIOT for INDUSTRY 4.0 and DIGITAL TWINS” (28 September at 9.30) precisely to tell how to transform the myth of the Smart Factory into reality thanks to IoT, without buying new machinery.
