Litmus Automation and BCG Announce Partnership

9 January 2019

Litmus Automation, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform provider, and Boston Consulting Group (BCG), a management consulting firm with expertise in operations and manufacturing IoT, today announced a partnership agreement for joint IoT offerings. BCG services combined with Litmus Automation platforms will help customers adopt Industry 4.0 and gather valuable, real-time data from their assets to make better business decisions.

BCG offers strategic IoT consulting and its Gamma business unit has significant expertise in deploying advanced analytics solutions to transform core processes. Litmus Automation is a leading provider of IIoT platforms to aid the continuous acquisition and use of manufacturing data from disparate sources, with the ability to answer the challenges of the IIoT environment with the LoopEdge and LoopCloud platforms. Through the partnership, BCG will help customers to diagnose, plan, build and grow an IoT roadmap; Gamma will provide advanced analytics solutions while partnering with Litmus to provide those customers with a complete IIoT platform solution for data collection and structuration.

"We partnered with Litmus because although the IoT platform market is crowded, most of those vendors only offer partial solutions for manufacturing IoT," said Olivier Bouffault, partner and managing director at BCG. "Litmus offers a complete, simple and pragmatic solution that combined with our expertise enables a range of opportunities in developing integral manufacturing analytics solutions."

"The road to realizing business value from IoT investments is full of uncertainty," said John Younes, co-founder and COO at Litmus Automation. "Together, BCG and Litmus can offer clients a path to successful Industry 4.0 adoption from concept to completion. We look forward to working collaboratively to leverage each of our capabilities to help companies digitally transform."
