... boosting your innovation with engineering and manufacturing solutions in the cloud...
The Digital Agora is a dynamic web application with its own business logic and data management, supporting multiple services, in order to enable consumers and providers to get together and benefit from building business relationships with one another.
The manufacturing industry is continuously being challenged by the ever changing circumstances, such as the individualization of products, the complexity of regulations, and the dependencies in a globalized market, among others. These challenges can only be overcome if the manufacturers develop the capacity to rapidly adapt and innovate their processes and productions under different conditions. ICT-driven solutions are becoming key enablers in the manufacturing industry toward strengthening their resilience and their ability to cope with new challenges.
To this end, clesgo GmbH - a German startup - is working toward facilitating the democratization and adoption of ICT-enabled solutions in the manufacturing industry. clesgo has joined forces with other partners to work on projects that empower innovative manufacturers with technologies and solutions such as:
clesgo aims to offer a digital ecosystem, where manufacturers and ICT experts get together, discover one another, and build trustworthy business relationships. On the one hand, manufacturers can look for ICT-related know-how, interact with experts and other peers, and find experts with proven solutions for specific challenges. On the other hand, the ICT experts can respond to challenges posed by manufacturers, promote and showcase their solutions and infrastructures, and offer their experience and know-how.
This digital ecosystem is realized by means of clesgo’s Digital Agora; a B2B cloud-based platform that seeks for streamlining the access to and adoption of ICT technologies and solutions, thanks to its dedicated functionalities to support Community interactions and Marketplace services around ICT-driven solutions.
The Community of the Digital Agora aims to empower its members to share and to interact with one another and to benefit from the collective intelligence of other participating manufacturers and experts. The Community has the following custom functionalities:
The Marketplace of the Digital Agora focuses on enabling the exploration of the technology experts’ capabilities, in order to boost the innovation and competitiveness of the manufacturers’ production processes. The Marketplace has the following tailored functionalities:
A manufacturing end user is challenged by the innovation speed within their development and manufacturing process; thus, the representative of the manufacturing end user visits the Digital Agora to explore how other manufacturing companies are increasing their competitiveness and innovation. By reading the experience of other manufacturers and by reading some related discussion panels, the end users decide to start call for a solution. This is answered by some technology experts, informing the end user about possible options and the possibility to start a one-to-one consulting project or to go through some training courses before start using the technology. After doing this, the manufacturing end user starts using the cloudified solution and shortly after, the innovation speed and competitiveness start improving.
There are no dependencies; the manufacturing end users and the technology experts could use a standard web browser to explore, use, and exploit the functionalities within the Digital Agora.
