AUTOSOL And Solace Partner to Connect the Dots between Industrial IOT and Enterprise IT

Enterprises can now bridge the information gap between operational technology, the Internet of Things, and informational technology

January 11, 2021– Houston, Texas and Ottawa, Ontario– AUTOSOL, the leading provider of solutions for industrial data delivery and SCADA automation, and Solace, the leading provider of event streaming and management solutions, have partnered to enable real-time information flow between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) systems. This information flow enables enterprises to optimize their operations, enable predictive maintenance and introduce innovative new data-driven services by applying analytics, business logic and machine learning to their industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems.

The Solace/AUTOSOL partnership helps companies extend the reach and value of their IIoT edge technologies by connecting process control and automation systems to an “event mesh” that streams data to and from production and operation execution systems, as well as to business/planning systems like ERP, SCP and PLM applications, across clouds and around the world.

“We are excited to grow our partnership with Solace to broaden both companies’ digital factory, energy, and transportation solutions,” said Suzzette Rainey, Vice-President, Canada, AUTOSOL. “This opens up PLCs, proprietary protocols and interfaces in a vendor-neutral way so companies can apply the business logic and insights of diverse applications and analytics engines to the optimization of the operational technology that powers their business.”

Solace PubSub+ Platform is an event streaming and management solution that runs in any cloud or on-premises environment, and supports a wide range of open APIs and protocols. This neutrality and interoperability lets systems in multiple edge sites interact with applications running in different regions of popular clouds, and even the IoT platforms offered by different providers such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. This union of technology combines the advantages of edge computing with the secure, reliable, instant data delivery associated with event-driven architecture.

Solace works with AUTOSOL to de-silo and liberate data in the oil and gas sector. AUTOSOL’s data collection solutions, AUTOSOL Communication Manager (ACM) and edge-based eACM, can convert proprietary field operational data to MQTT or SparkplugTM B and publish it to an event mesh powered by Solace’s PubSub+ Platform. The event mesh distributes the data to diverse data consumers across the enterprise who can use it to identify opportunities and make more well-informed decisions.

The joint solution meets the needs of enterprise architects and data scientists alike by enabling the delivery of alerts and notifications using the best protocol for each interaction. Solace’s work with AUTOSOL enables bi-directional delivery of data between IT and OT systems, including highly optimized communications over wide area networks (WANs) that link many sites across geographic regions. It also supports streaming translation between popular messaging APIs and proprietary machine-centric protocols such as Modbus, OPC UA, and DNP3.

The partnership between Solace and AUTOSOL allows greater process optimization and operational efficiencies through effective data analysis, allowing entities to connect disparate dots within their organizations. Clients glean insights from data sooner to improve asset management with predictive maintenance and supply chain optimization. They can also avoid fines with accurate emissions monitoring for regulatory filings, and reliably maintain personnel safety and health.

“This partnership demonstrates the impact event streaming can have when combined with the expertise and sophisticated tools that solution providers like AUTOSOL offer,” said Paul Fitzpatrick, chief business development officer, Solace. “We look forward to working with AUTOSOL to enable enterprises to optimize operations, and create value for customers, with event-based solutions that bridge the data gap between IT, operations, and edge systems.”
