Orange Group subsidiary Business & Decision is collaborating with hybrid edge cloud specialist mimik Technology to accelerate adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies. Business & Decision will incorporate mimik’s technology to deliver solutions to reduce latency and lower bandwidth consumption while improving data security for global clients in industries such as finance, and the public sector. The two companies are aiming to harness the full potential of 5G network speeds to accelerate clients’ digital transformation.

Building on mimik’s technology, Business & Decision clients should benefit from lower total cost of ownership because most workloads are offloaded to these devices and processed at the edge versus in the cloud. This should reduce their overall data centre footprint and associated costs, and cuts carbon emissions. Clients can maintain full control of their data, strengthening privacy and improving data governance.

“Although 5G promises low latency, the reality is that application speed and performance are highly dependent on the underlying architecture,” said Carlo Schots, Sales Director, Business & Decision. “As a result, any advantages we’ve seen in network speed disappear on the backend—until now. The mimik platform enables us to bypass traditional, centralised cloud solutions and process development workloads in a high-performance edge environment that enables real-time connectivity at 5G speeds. We are excited to partner with mimik to bring these important capabilities to our enterprise clients, enabling their low-risk and seamless digital transformation journeys in a highly secure data environment.”

“Business & Decision has the proven expertise and experience in systems integration and data-driven technologies that further innovation and accelerate digital transformation,” said Sam Armani, SVP Business Development, mimik Technology. “We look forward to our partnership to help Business & Decision’s customers accelerate their digital transformation and attain unprecedented efficiencies and performance improvements enabled by mimik’s hybrid edge cloud platform and edge-based microservices.”
