With the launch of the new Voith OnCumulus offering, Voith customers now benefit from an IIoT platform with specific visualization and analytics functionalities. OnCumulus enables customers to leverage data across the enterprise from all equipment within all facilities to optimize reliability, achieve targeted performance and increase savings that impact the bottom line. 

OnCumulus.Platform: One central data hub for digitalization 

The OnCumulus.Platform serves as the data hub for data from all kinds of sources – plants, production lines, machines and devices for example. Customers benefit from one central platform for their data from which they can launch their digitalization initiatives. The OnCumulus.Platform is based on open-source and highly standardized technologies. It provides fast, reliable and secure access to data from local machines and systems in the cloud as well as fast provisioning for value creation. The platform is scalable, flexible and extensible at any time. 

With OnCumulus, Voith offers an IIoT platform that meets the highest privacy, security and compliance industry standards and best practices, such as CSA, NIST and OWASP. Voith cybersecurity experts ensure end-to-end security, so that the full lifecycle of data is secure at all times. OnCumulus customers stay in control of their data in every usage scenario and define the data access. Furthermore, Voith supports local control of the data by providing data centers in every region.

OnCumulus.Suite: First step towards visualization and analytics 

By pre-structuring the available data using visualization and analytical functionalities, customers benefit from the first basic, easy-to-use tools, namely: Information Flow, Monitoring and Alarming Tool as well as Analysis. Therefore, customers can access their data in near real-time and take the first step for optimizing their operating process by using persona-based dashboards. 

Industry-specific applications: OnEfficiency and OnCare

In addition to OnCumulus.Suite, Voith is offering further value to its customers by launching the first solutions from the existing product families OnEfficiency and OnCare as cloud-based OnCumulus applications: OnEfficiency Pulp, OnEfficiency.Strength, OnEfficiency.DIP, OnEfficiency.Dewatering and OnCare.Asset. OnEfficiency applications support customers in improving their process efficiency while OnCare focuses on the availability of assets. 

Using the applications on the same cloud-based technical platform, customers benefit from bridging information and data views cross-site and cross-app and therewith leverage untapped correlation possibilities for more advanced insights and transparency. External information sources like raw material prices, weather data, or connections to webshops or warehouses can be easily integrated and correlated with existing operational data. 

By combining OnCumulus.Suite with the new cloud-based applications of the proven solutions, customers profit not only from the increase of efficiency, productivity and quality of the entire production supply chain but gain also new additional possibilities.

“Thanks to the enormous developments within information and communication technologies, customers can now take the chance to benefit from technologies that offer faster data exchange, big data analytics and cloud solutions," says Dr. Roland Münch, CEO Voith Digital Solutions. “OnCumulus enables our customers to intelligently benefit from this digital transformation – with optimized processes, improved use of resources, flexibility and security - so that they improve competitiveness and achieve future viability.”
