Your Digital Transformation Journey Starts Here

In simple terms, digital transformation is about utilising data and analytics to create a "digital twin" of key processes and physical assets. This digital foundation enables a company to drive down costs while delivering consistent quality.

It also enables the company to run a "digital thread" through the design, build, and service functions—using analytic intelligence to create a virtuous loop that delivers continuous improvements to equipment and processes. This enables industrial companies to rapidly refactor operations, improve existing offerings, support critical decisions with meaningful data, and innovate with new outcome-based business models.

Catapult has partnered with GE Digital to help organisations successfully define and implement change through technology. A wide range of customers covering industries such as industrial, manufacturing and transport are exploring how they can use technology and data analytics to reduce costs and optimise their assets and operations.

The foundational digital industrial components emerged in the 1990s: industrial control software (HMI/SCADA), manufacturing software (MES), and asset management software (APM). These technologies are common in industrial environments. They deliver important capabilities that are necessary, but not sufficient, for digital industrial transformation. Up until the last 10 years, it was cost -prohibitive for many industrial companies to fully digitise and analyse their operations. Full digital transformation—with comprehensive digital twins and a complete digital thread— has been made possible by low-cost innovations.

Catapult Digital Transformation Journey Hart Design

This diagram illustrates a common path for digital industrial transformation. Connecting to smart devices and monitoring them from a SCADA or HMI solution enables automation. Collecting and analysing data from these devices is often facilitated through a Historian and reporting solution. Being able to predict issues or maintenance needs and optimise your production are some of the ultimate outcomes for Digital Transformation. 

This journey towards digital transformation is illustrated above. Collecting and storing data from your assets is a common technology practice in today's manufacturing and industrial environments. However, simply retrieving this data doesn't immediately result in the ability to effectively use it to drive efficiency and transformation. To achieve this GE Digital provides a portfolio of solutions that enable you to visualise your data, gain insights and finally begin to analyse operations, predict problems and ultimately find ways to optimise your assets, human resources and processes. Catapult and GE Digital can guide your business based on this data analysis and digital transformation journey.
