Scope of IIoT Services Sterison Provides
Our IIoT consulting services help assess and raise the efficiency of technology-enabled business processes. Sterison offers expertise built on best success stories across varied IT needs.
Financial feasibility analysis
To ensure operations automation is beneficial for you, we calculate the potential investments, ROI, and payback period of the IIoT solution.
Consulting at the strategy planning stage
We analyze your business objectives, determine IIoT system capabilities, and create a detailed roadmap of the system implementation. As a result, you can cut implementation costs and reduce risks at all implementation stages.
Consulting at the requirements specification stage
Our team turns your high-level view of an Industrial IoT solution into a detailed project specification. We closely collaborate with project stakeholders to specify the requirements at each layer of an Industrial IoT paradigm: connectivity, embedded software, and cloud software.
Consulting at the application planning stage
Sterison’sIoT experts design tailored IIoT solutions to improve a particular industrial process or mitigate a particular challenge. We define an IIoT application’s feature set and establish integration with other enterprise systems.
Sterison can develop a cost-effective IIoT software from scratch, using Microsoft Azure or AWS cloud services or open-source IoT platforms enabling sensor data collection and analytics, IIoT device connectivity, control and management.
Based on high-level requirements
Sterison’s experts elicit high-level IIoT requirements from stakeholders and study the organization’s processes to further design, develop and implement mature and flexible Industrial IoT solutions. To save investments on large-scale implementation and get value faster, we start with core features and then enrich the solution functionality.
Based on detailed requirements
We thoroughly analyze your IIoT solution specification to determine the project scope, assess its complexity and define necessary Industrial IoT devices. Having provided a delivery schedule and calculated a project cost, we develop, test and implement your IIoT solution. After the IIoT deployment, we offer solution support and performance management services upon request.
IIoT hardware consulting and implementation
Besides software implementation, Sterison’s experts can assist you in selecting appropriate Industrial IoT devices for your solution, creating custom devices using market-available components (subject to certification), setting up and configuring the equipment.
IIoT solution testing
To ensure that your IIoT solution works as required, we check system behavior under a set of expected load variations (load testing), detect the maximum operating capacity of the system (stress testing), measure the scalability and stability of the IIoT solution. We also conduct vulnerability assessment and penetration testing of IIoT systems.
IIoT solution support and maintenance
Sterison’s team is ready to carry out IIoT application monitoring and performance management, proactively diagnose and fix solution defects, and perform administration tasks including security updates, user and access management.
Our AI services will enable enterprises to automate regular business process to increase efficiency & speed with minimal errors.

Benefits of Industrial IoT
Sterison’s IIoT solutions enable remote monitoring, control, and automation of the industrial processes and bring the following benefits
We Know How to Mitigate the Most Acute Challenges
Nothing as massive as Industry 4.0 comes without challenges. Our vast experience and domain knowledge helps us proactively address them.
Legacy equipment should be seamlessly connected to a single IIoT solution
We leverage our vast experience to ensure free data transmission between the cloud part of an IIoT solution and different types of industrial equipment, including non-computerized machines, CNCs, machining centers and robots.
The value of an IIoT solution that functions across separate silos and is not integrated into the factory ecosystem is questionable
To avoid that, we ensure smooth integration of an IIoT solution with both enterprise (ERP, MES, SCM, etc.) and shop floor (SCADA) management systems.
Since businesses are concerned about the ROI, fast pay off must be guaranteed
For that, we start with a simple solution architecture and then expand it both vertically and horizontally.
We Always Try To Understand Users Expectation
