A luxury sports car aims at laying the foundation to provide the Industrial area with an IT platform that enables the implementation and integrated use of the technologies known as Industry 4.0.
Provide near-real-time reliable information, parameters and indicators derived from the data coming from the production infrastructure is the main aim of business stakeholders.
The main current limitation that the platform aims at resolving is the high effort and manual workload required to implement advanced functionalities if they rely on cross-area data.
The platform shall therefore integrate data from various source systems in a short period of time (few minutes), and make data available in an open format through a common data model for use by internal and third-party applications.
The solution is based on Azure services that act as the fundamental blocks of the platform. The ingestion and transformation phase is based on Data factory and Databricks while the data model is represented using documents in a Cosmos DB. API layer is hosted on top of AKS through several .NET Core services
