T.CON GmbH & Co. KG, a SAP Gold partner and consultant based in Plattling, Germany, has entered a strategic partnership with Factor-E Analytics GmbH (FACTOR.E) from Berlin. The cooperation aims at enabling a quick, simple and cost-effective entry into Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) especially for medium-sized production companies. With FactorE.OS, the start-up from Berlin offers an innovative cloud application, which allows a simple digital linking of production lines from different manufacturers – no matter if they have an IT interface or not.

In order to fully seize the enormous market potential that FactorE.OS can offer for medium-sized production companies for the optimisation of machinery productivity, T.CON will incorporate the cloud-based Industry 4.0 solution into its own solution portfolio and is also responsible for sales, introduction and support. Depending on the demands, the application can be implemented as a standalone solution or in combination with the practice-proven MES CAT suite from T.CON, which integrates seamlessly into SAP NetWeaver and therefore SAP ERP. For a simple, bi-directional data exchange between MES CAT Suite and FactorE.OS, REST APIs are available. Furthermore, FACTOR.E will also profit from the new partnership: The start-up can fully concentrate on its core competence and further improve the cloud solution based on the most modern technologies.
