HAT turns plant floor data into actionable, process-improving, real-time intelligence. This advanced data collection and analysis system provides users with consistent, reliable, and provable data in an easy-to-use format. HAT focuses on proactively controlling processes and preventing failures so companies can guarantee their products meet their company's and customers' standards for safety and quality.

  • All data can be viewed in real-time, including failure ranking reports, pre-shipment review, and compliance reports.
  • Data can also be shown on charts and graphs enabled with SPC analysis and Six Sigma capabilities.
  • You may use the data to analyze loss, track root causes of problems, and prove traceability from receipt to consumer.
  • Checks can be configured per your company's HACCP, HIMP, USDA, FDA, QA, QC, and SOP/GMP specifications.
  • Associates may collect weight, size, temperature, grading, and defect data on the plant floor as well as perform yield, retention, and AQL checks.
  • Janam's XM Series rugged mobile computers are certified for the HAT system. The software can also be used on touch-screen, hand-held, or tablet computers.

Janam's antimicrobial version of its popular XM Series is an ideal mobile device for CAT Squared and other partners serving the food industry with solutions designed to improve food safety, streamline operations and increase overall product quality. The Janam XM66AM and XM60+AM rugged antimicrobial mobile computers are the only handhelds in their category that offer "whole device" antimicrobial coverage. The entire unit – not just the plastic housing – is protected by an antimicrobial coating that effectively kills microorganisms.

"Rugged handheld computers are only valuable if workers use them," said Harry B Lerner, Janam's CEO. "Comfort, speed and weight matter. We are excited to partner with CAT Squared who clearly recognizes how important it is for the entire solution to fit the needs of the task at hand." Janam offers the only rugged antimicrobial handhelds that deliver a full 3.5" color display yet weigh less than 10 ounces. While the light, ergonomic design makes the handheld easy to carry, the relatively large display provides superior viewability, making it a welcome tool on any plant floor.

As our global population continues to grow exponentially and the need for affordable, safe, quality food increases with it, more innovations in food technology will have to be made to meet the demand. The combined strengths of CAT Squared and Janam is producing groundbreaking results.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...
After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists l...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
