Big data optimises businesses anytime and anywhere Digitalisation now enables details of production and product performance to be measured and optimised in ways that would have been impossible only ten years ago. The engineering pioneers at Eltronic, a business that has worked with some of Denmark’s largest companies, can save all types of organisations significant amounts of time, money and resources by determining anything from ideal production routines to optimised energy use.

programmed to create easily accessible analyses to fit individual company needs. Finally, a secure, specially developed app can alert specific employees or departments when irregularities occur, preventing problems.

DIAP has huge potential outside of traditional production environments too. One of the company’s most challenging projects has been to create a lifting system for windmill construction. “Working out exact carrying capacities and determining wind speeds are crucial when raising windmills, as the wind can easily bring construction to a halt, wasting huge amounts of resources,” Rantala notes. “Now our clients know exactly when and how to strike.” Furthermore, DIAP can be used to predict equipment failure in offices, to easily carry out daily temperature adjustments to save energy, to measure beach water contents or building site noise, and for just about anything else.

The future is here: the Internet of Things (IoT), based on smart technology and smart objects, is already changing the world. Data intelligence collected on a massive scale and honed to fit the exact requirements of a company allows businesses to accurately measure and quantify almost anything. Recording patterns and revealing areas of weakness and strength allows businesses to make adjustments to equipment, spaces and schedules accordingly, letting them realise their business’s full potential.

endless opportunities that data-aided optimisation brings. “So many different areas have the potential for improvement with this,” Rantala explains. “We’ve worked on some really interesting projects for both private and public entities.” The department usually works with clients to set up platforms developed from scratch from the clients’ initial idea through production; but in the autumn of 2016, Eltronic launched DIAP, its own ready-made Data Intelligence & Analysis Platform, which can be modified easily and quickly to fit into a pre-existing network or environment. The huge amounts of data picked up by its sensors are uploaded securely to the Cloud or the company’s own database, and DIAP is then
