KPN and Dyzle Collaborate to Offer Integrated Platform for Real-Time Monitoring Solutions to the Food and Pharmaceutical Industry

KPN, the leading telecommunications and ICT service provider in the Netherlands, and Dyzle BV, the global leader in measuring and analyzing business process data for the cold chain in real-time, have announced a collaboration to offer an integrated platform for monitoring, tracking, and providing real-time data analytics and visualization for the food and pharmaceutical industries.

The collaboration is part of KPN’s innovation drive, helping customers in the food and pharmaceutical sectors to improve their core business activity and efficiency and to comply with health regulations. Dyzle’s platform is a cloud-based solution that collects data such as temperature, humidity, energy consumption and CO2, analyzes that data, and makes it visible on a personal dashboard accessible securely over the web from any internet-enabled device. The main purpose of delivering this data is to help customers provide undisputable evidence and proof of product quality for temperature-sensitive products.

Jimmy Wind, Managing Director of KPN M2M, said, “This partnership is in line with our strategy of growth through value added services, and innovating in sectors like machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies, which are now being more widely adopted in almost every industry sector. By combining our M2M and RFID asset tracking solutions with Dyzle’s monitoring and analytics platform, we will truly be able to move up the value chain in our service offering to business customers. Not only can we track the location of a product in a logistic chain, but also we collect the environmental conditions during its shipment.”

Bert Zandhuis, CEO of Dyzle, added, “We are extremely pleased that KPN chose to adopt our platform and combine it with their products and services. This integrated platform offers customers a solution to a growing industry trend: that of huge amounts of data being collected, and needing to make sense of that data relevant to the business. That’s where we have considerable experience, where we measure and present data on personal dashboards to provide a snapshot at any time, or to warn of any excursions in real-time. This is essential for our customers to demonstrate proof of product quality and integrity.”

The partnership between KPN and Dyzle serves a market need for what one analyst firm calls ‘one-stop shop application enablement platforms’. According to ABI Research, these platforms ease data extraction and normalization activities so that M2M applications and enterprise systems can easily consume machine data. The firm says that application enablement platforms will be a ‘critical and necessary’ enabler in the use of M2M in small, medium and larger businesses. In particular, it says that adding value added service capabilities is almost a necessity to avoid commoditization pressures and capture revenues in the largest segment of the M2M value chain.

ABI Research also forecasts that the M2M analytics industry will grow 53 percent over the next five years, to US$14.3 billion in 2018. The forecast includes revenue segmentation for the five components that together enable analytics to be used in M2M services: data integration, data storage, core analytics, data presentation, and associated professional services. It says analytics will play a critical role in the evolution of M2M, serving as the foundation for an increasing number of M2M business cases.

The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cold chain technology solution from Dyzle provides interpretation and analysis of measured variables such as temperature, humidity, energy consumption and CO2. The open independent platform can integrate and utilize data collected from any source, whether it is from proprietary systems or legacy technologies. Through the entire supply chain – from storage to transport and distribution – Dyzle collects data, analyzes it, and makes it visible via a ‘one click’ personal dashboard accessible securely over the web from any internet-enabled device; this enables full visibility of the total cold chain.
