The new era of Industrial IoT

Industrial IoT and the connected factory concept are currently hot topics in industry. But yet, often times there is confusion among professionals in discussions both online and offline on the role of IIoT. Questions like, "Does IIoT replace SCADA?", " Can the two be integrated? " and "What really is the difference between the two?" always arise. The confusion is justified though, as there really is no clear line of differentiation between IIOT and SCADA. Personally I believe IIoT should be viewed as a technology that builds on top of SCADA.

In conclusion both SCADA and Industrial IoT are about the sensors and data acquisition. They differ in many aspects, but their common goal is to optimize equipment use, to provide correct production data and have better control over some devices and processes.

As per my thinking, these are some points where we differentiate IIOT and SCADA

  • 1) IOT tries to reduce hardware,system ownership cost, skills(some of the few that comes to my mind)for the owners/end users. For example historian can store data but only to a certain extent after which it will be overwritten by new data which means owner has to invest in bigger sized servers which can be avoided if data is transferred to the cloud. IIOT has the ability to process large amount of data from machines, All the data is sent to cloud and accessed using login details.

  • 2) Data analysis(short term/long term) requires skills and a normal SCADA engineer can't do this. This activity can be easily moved to cloud where the analysis can be done by experts both on the process as well as equipment based on customer requirement. Analysis need not be limited to "things" alone. IIOT is all about long term data storage for analysis, Big data analysis and machine learning algorithms can be applied to predict outcomes. This gives more power to the system by being able to predict maintenance schedules and so extending equipment life.

  • 3) Software licensing and upgradation of the same is a regular feature of SCADA systems which includes Windows as well. For example If an end user wants a reporting feature to be added in SCADA he has to buy a separate license and has to keep upgrading it regularly whereas cloud based services can help in avoiding this licensing ownership.

  • 4) Certain features like process control, alarming, real time operations, etc can be done by SCADA and not IIOT.

So SCADA and Industrial IOT can work with hand in hand, The measure benefit of IIOT is right data analysis is available anytime, anywhere and on any device which is useful to decrease downtime, to take production related decisions and to increase productivity.

Rebranding Aaryak !!!

“What’s in a name?” A famous dialogue in William Shakespeare's play. In our real life play we are very conscious about name - whether it’s our name or our child’s name or our business name. Especially while starting a startup it’s a greatest confusion “What should be our business name?“ I think this a first challenge for every entrepreneur. Five years ago we were also in a big confusion that what will be our name, fortunately our best friend Prasad Devasthali suggested us the name Aaryak means ambitious which is a Sanskrit word. Before that we were trying different names, in search of name which is easy to remember and which tells a story but when we listen this word Aaryak,we had first sight love with this word. Later on Prasad started his agro product business named Aaryak Agro Products, you can say it’s an agro division of Aaryak.

After all the name will be remembered only when we deliver that kind of products or services. The weight of name increases only when we deliver qualitative services or products to simplify complex things. It feels really proud when you go for a meeting at your customer’s office and receptionist call her boss and says “Three Aaryaks has come for meeting”, actually it’s a sign that people likes your work that’s why they remember your name.

The key of brand building is to continuously improving a quality of service for which we need to continuously learn new things, adopt new technologies, new methodologies and much more. At the same time we noticed one thing that as our business grows we should present ourselves in more dynamic way. The goal of rebranding Aaryak is to influence a customer's perception about the company overall by revitalizing the brand and making it seem more modern and relevant to the customer's needs.

As a part of rebranding, we changed our logo and look n feel of our website. A new logo is very simple and attractive; also through website visitors can get more information about Aaryak. We have started a blog in website through which our programmers, technical experts will write about new trends in IT, coding techniques, Logic development, Case studies, etc. We are sure that it will definitely beneficial for IT freshers and programmers.

Our Startup Story

Few years ago in 2009 at a small city-Ratnagiri (Maharashtra, India), two friends who neither having any idea about how to form a company nor having any funds or customer base, were talking about forming their own company. They want to grab the huge (!) local market & create IT employment in a small city like Ratnagiri, But is it possible without any experience? They might be thinking on the same and hence after completing M.Sc. in Computer Science, they joined an Industrial Automation startup as a software developer. During their job they travelled across India and met different people from different industries.

After completing one year job now they had enough (?) courage to fall in business. They were finding an opportunity for the same and one day they met a businessman who had having an idea of healthcare related project which had a huge scope (according to their knowledge), So both of them left the job and started to work for their own business, it was 1st September 2012.

Now they decided to form a company but what name should be given that was the question. One of their friend - Prasad Devasthali suggested the name “Aaryak” which is a Sanskrit word (Aaryak Means a Passionate Person). They finalized this name and finally “Aaryak Solutions” started.

So we are that two aaryaks - Prashant Acharya and Hrushikesh Sarpotdar. we started working on that project and some other project from government sector were also clicked. At that time company had only one computer, one of our friend-Medha Karmarkar came forward and given her computer. So now Aaryak Solutions started with two computers and Rs.20000 (token amount received from the first project) in 20X20 room at Ratnagiri. After that we never looked back, some up and downs were there but we survived because of positive attitude, concentrated hard work and blessings of our well-wishers.

Fourteenth day of June 2014 was a memorable day for us because on that day “Aaryak Solutions” became “Aaryak Solutions Private Limited” which is nothing but the power of Dreams. Yet we are walking on the path and looking for the best equipments to run faster and faster.

It’s Just a beginning, much more to go!
