South Bend-based data platform company Aunalytics is partnering with the University of Notre Dame to assist northern Indiana businesses as they adopt digital technology. The data company says it will provide a cloud data and analytics platform to ND’s INDustry Labs to assist manufacturers in the region as they compete in the digital and global marketplace.
Manufacturing companies are grappling with the costs associated with digital transformation to remain competitive in today’s data-driven era. Aunalytics says being able to access and organize numerous data points can help companies, whether it’s with inventory reviews or sale performances, to make better decisions moving forward.
“By providing our technology and services to this collaboration, we’re in a position to assist the SBE region’s industrial businesses in remaining competitive as data-driven insights become increasingly critical to standard business operations,” said Rich Carlton, president and CRO of Aunalytics. “We are very excited to be in partnership with the University, and to help facilitate the opportunities created when academic resources, enhancement of student skills, and industry growth intersect in support of a common goal.”
The initiative is currently in its first phase, according to Aunalytics, with a team of data scientists in place preparing the platform for university use.
Once in place, contracted manufacturing companies can move into a pilot phase, where Notre Dame students will aggregate and organize data for analytics use.
