Manufacturing automation provider, Invensys Operations Management, inked a strategic relationship pact with enterprise services integrator Cognizant to deliver Invensys’ InFusion enterprise control system.
This move is the next step in a relationship between the two that started with a research and development agreement.
“This is a great complement to our delivery mechanism because, in effect, we have expanded our collaboration from global research and development to a strategic alliance where we will jointly deliver consulting and solutions across our mutual clients’ operations and business systems, specifically focusing on large-scale, open integration utilizing the InFusion Enterprise Control System– the ECS,” said Steve Blair, president, Invensys Operations Management, North America.
The goal for the agreement is to have the entire operation on the same page, so the business side of a manufacturer can effectively collaborate with the manufacturing end.
“By linking independent systems and personnel that do not traditionally communicate or collaborate, the InFusion ECS acts as a system of systems to provide critical, real-time business and operating information and collaboration that can enhance enterprise-wide decision-making and improve overall profitability,” he said.
Invensys will focus on their system for the operations management space.
“These services will be complemented by Cognizant’s consulting and system integration capabilities in enterprise IT solutions, especially for large-scale, enterprise-wide projects,” said Ravi Gopinath, president, Invensys Operations Management, Asia Pacific.
“By combining our deep knowledge of Invensys products with our consulting-led approach, global delivery platform and proven capabilities in enterprise systems integration and analytics, we are delivering a compelling value proposition to Invensys customers by way of industry-aligned enterprise control solutions,” said Venkateswaran Mahesh, senior vice president, engineering, manufacturing and retail practice, Cognizant.
