Tilia Labs, developer of planning, imposition, and ‘Artificially Intelligent’ automation software has launched the Industry 4.0-compliant tilia Cloud, a secure but open framework that aims to revolutionize the way print service providers connect, access, and manage their data.
Tilia Cloud is a cloud-based IoT toolkit customized for printing and packaging. By gathering and storing data in real-time from connected devices and equipment, and molding that data into meaningful information, tilia Cloud allows actions to be automated and decisions made instantaneously. Vendor agnostic and secure, it also enables companies to share licenses, centralize resources, and bring on new facilities and users as required over time.
“When systems communicate effectively, smarter cost-based decisions can be made in real-time,” explains Sagen de Jonge, CEO of Tilia Labs. “tilia Cloud makes this possible by offering automated communication across an open but data-secure framework. Our technology not only provides scalable connectivity and integration capabilities for today but opens up the infinite opportunities of IoT to expedite ongoing business improvements and innovations along the entire value chain.”
A new feature is real-time streaming API for live updates and collaboration across all connected clients. Using a modern microservices architecture and serverless technology, tilia Cloud scales horizontally to meet demand. All microservices are multi-tenant aware and use secure, token-based authentication to provide safe integrations with virtually all private or hybrid cloud environments, claimed to eliminate any risk to existing integrations or processes.
Built for scalability, tilia Cloud is designed to be Enterprise Ready in every facet. Auto-scaling and automated backups provide security against any single-point of failure. User accounts can be created, and roles defined in detail, while policies can be specified, and licenses accessed on any resource in the system anywhere in the world.
“Our vision at Tilia Labs has always been to apply the latest software technologies coupled with first-class UX to gain efficiencies and improve usability for the benefit of print providers,” concludes de Jonge.
