At the heart of this ecosystem lies an Oracle 19 database that provides a single, authoritative view of all the physical, logical, operational, and human assets of the business that can be viewed in a visual, almost virtual reality-like, 3D format that aids understanding and optimises decision making, either by human or digital robot operations, or a combination of the two.
SARI..BE takes a wide range of direct digital inputs. Industry and de-facto standard network discovery tools are used to find, categorise, and map any device with an IP address or not. Data and AI processes can be ingested from Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), IT Service Management (ITSM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and a wide variety of other IT and business management systems. Further inputs can also be taken from Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems and Biometrics.
The SARI..BE platform contains modules covering 10 key business areas; – Governance, Legal, Facilities, Finance, Human Resources, Technology, Operations, Customers, Partners and AI Management. Each come with a set of pre-defined functions and workflows to which users can add and modify additional functions and AI processes within SARI..BE itself.
All these inputs are used to feed SARI..BE’s Core AI Engine and provide data rationalisation, analytics, and automation functionality. Using customer-defined rules-based triggers, SARI..BE identifies and remediates issues with assets, configurations, rules, behaviours and processes proactively, and where possible, autonomously, using Robotic Process Automation and/or actual physical robot devices. The AI Engine continuously assesses interactions between assets and outcomes achieved to optimise operational outcomes.
SARI..BE has a strong simulation and what if scenario planning capability where its 3D graphical, business rules and AI processes views are particularly useful. In operations management use cases, SARI..BE data can be output to devices to provide site engineers with step-by-step guides for handling both routine maintenance or more complex problem resolution. Output can also be directly to Robotics and IoT Devices.
Currently, deployment is via cloud and on-premises installation. Services are provided to help customers with initial configuration requirements, process discovery and improvement, and support during early stages of operation.
