Cape Town, South Africa: July 13th, 2022 — Dataprophet has just been announced as the Outstanding Innovation category winner at the 2022 Global Business Excellence Awards.

DataProphet was recognized for outstanding innovation in the manufacturing space through the development of its  suite of AI products and the results their AI-as-a-Service   achieved with plant teams through its implementation in factories:

  1. DataProphet PRESCRIBE, which uses deep learning discovery to determine, in advance, the plant’s best-of-best (BOB) operating regime and provides operators with easily actionable prescriptions for the high-impact changes needed—to safely and continually optimize the production process for which the plant team is responsible.
  2. DataProphet CONNECT is a complete, fully scalable, and remotely accessible  IIoT connectivity solution. CONNECT securely facilitates the preprocessing, centralization, and visualization of the data that is most critical to plant personnel on a role-specific basis. CONNECT works in the context of the full digital transformation journey—ensuring that the plant’s data integrity, context, and resolution is elevated to a state of AI-readiness, thus primed for data-driven solutions.
  3. DataProphet DETECT, a deep learning prescriptive machine monitoring solution. 

Combined, this product suite is establishing DataProphet as one of the world’s first truly end-to-end Smart Manufacturing AI-driven industrial solution providers, supporting the Digital Maturity journey of any manufacturing plant. 

The Global Business Excellence Awards pride themselves on having a large panel of independent expert judges who select winners according to strict criteria for each category and sector, focusing on financial results, innovation, and benefits for customers, employees, investors, and the community.
