Mirka's products need to be of high quality, since approximately 97% of the production is exported, and the products are sold in over a hundred countries.
To start off the project, Mirka chose the technological solutions and planned the necessary architectures. After that, Mirka contacted a number of potential suppliers with appropriate business experience and references.
Prior to the project, Mirka had already been using Microsoft Azure's IoT Hub technology to stream the IoT data.
"Our goal with this project was to build an edge solution which would utilize Azure in a way that would enable us to manage application components from the cloud, but execute and run them at the factory," says Mathias Rönnlund, Systems Architect at Mirka.
