Amazon Web Services (AWS) has declared that Apollo Tyres is going all-in on AWS to digitally transform.
By moving all of its IT infrastructures to AWS, Apollo Tyres can use AWS’s broad portfolio of services to innovate new customer experiences while driving productivity, compliance, and process efficiency gains globally, across seven factories.
“By digitally transforming with AWS, we can unlock productivity and efficiency gains in our factories globally, innovate new products and services faster, and enhance customer experience,” said Hizmy Hassen, Chief Digital Officer, Apollo Tyres. “We are using AWS capabilities, like IoT and machine learning services, to connect our factories and make them smarter. This fosters collaboration between our IT and business teams to make the production process more efficient while delivering higher quality products at a lower cost.”
“Apollo Tyres is using the cloud to digitally transform, improve the tyre manufacturing process, and deliver better value to customers,” said Vaishali Kasture, Head of Enterprise, Mid-Market, and Global Businesses, AWS India and South Asia, Amazon Internet Services Private Limited (AISPL). “By moving its entire infrastructure to AWS, Apollo Tyres creates an environment of rapid and continuous innovation to provide safer and better-quality tyres, and enhanced customer service experiences.”
Using data from the factory floor and real-time information from production machines, like tyre rubber mixer machines, Apollo Tyres can expand operational intelligence capabilities and more accurately manage machine utilization, ensuring high-quality levels and machine efficiency.
With AWS, Apollo Tyres is connecting all of its factories in the cloud this year in India and Europe.
By 2022, Apollo Tyres plans to migrate all mission-critical enterprise applications, including its SAP applications, to AWS to enhance customer experience, improve process efficiency, and enable process automation.
Using AWS IoT SiteWise, a managed service that makes it easy to collect, store, organize and monitor data from industrial equipment at scale, and AWS IoT Greengrass, an open-source edge runtime and cloud service for building, deploying, and managing device software, Apollo Tyres developed an IoT-in-a-box solution.
Apollo Tyres uses Amazon Redshift, a cloud data warehouse, to create a global dashboard for visualizing production information from the data lake, providing business teams and plant managers with real-time visibility into the manufacturing process.
Apollo Tyres also launched an automated tyre inspection program that checks for tyre defects using photos of the tyres taken as they progress along the production line.
