The IT landscape is changing: Infrastructure and software are offered "as a service". This allows to create flexible and scalable solutions that cover the actual needs. The user does not have to take care about the systems maintenance and security, the owners focus is on the operation.
The business model known as "Cloud Computing" offers a lot of advantages that can be exploited. focus is your strong partner to bring your data into the cloud and get the best out of it.
The Edge technology provides new possibilities for business models and applications. Even big amounts of data can be collected and processed in real-time - directly at the machine. The use of container technologies such as dockers enables the provision of apps on edge devices, but also in the management system.
Edge solutions add data processing capability to the automation environment. Data can thus be stored and processed locally on the shop floor without long transmission paths.
Due to ever advancing interconnectedness of machines and production facilities including cloud connectivity, the risk of cyberattacks is increasing. The machines and production facilities that partially belong to critical infrastructure, must be protected against cyberattacks. The ISA / IEC 62443 Standard "Cybersecurity of industrial automation and control systems (IACS) " provides an holistic approach to security consideration and protection of industrial OT networks.
We offer support and solutions for the entire process by ISA / IEC 62443 certified employees.
Functional engineering is becoming more and more important in the digitalization process. It forms the central base for all disciplines, starting with concept development, to process and mechanical detail engineering, up to electrical design, process control and IIoT systems.
focus offers a software-supported platform for functional engineering in the field of electrical design, PLC software and SCADA systems. Furthermore, we support your integration process for functional engineering into your existing workflows.
