Technology Consulting, Services and Support for the Manufacturing IndustryFierce global competitors have compelled manufacturers to adopt new technology and evolve their business models.
As a result, IT is everywhere in a modern manufacturing environment, from the machines that perform controlled production work to the external equipment that controls these machines.
Producers must have their operational and business systems aligned to remain functional and profitable in the face of unique challenges – manufacturing or supply chain issues, security or compliance issues, or even everyday logistical challenges.
At OceanCyber, we understand what technology solutions can imply to producers aiming to keep pace with today’s fast-moving market. We also understand that deploying and managing that technology can be problematic with so many shifting pieces. Our in-depth expertise with small to mid-sized manufacturers offers growing companies the tools and experience they want to manage and protect their technology investments.
IT SOLUTIONS TO ADDRESS MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY CHALLENGES
Maintaining uptime is the age-old IT problem of manufacturing. Downtime (particularly unplanned) can kill revenue margins quickly and create havoc.
A 2021 global research discovered that, on average, medium-to-large-sized plants lose 323 manufacturing hours to downtime annually.
But regardless of a producing facility’s size, the costs to productivity – and the bottom line – build-up:
- Lost income
- Financial penalties
- Idle employees time
- Restarting lines
That’s why the key to maintaining uptime (or lowering downtime) is implementing a robust data backup and disaster recovery solution that forms the foundation for business continuity. OceanCyber helps your business’ continuity with:
- Onsite and offsite daily backups
- Cloud Backups as a second line of protection
- Emergency Response Planning, training and procedures
- Encryption of backed-up files
- Managing Growth and Scalability
Shifting market demands and technological innovations create new challenges, making existing processes and equipment obsolete. However, integrating legacy systems with the latest applications and platforms to enhance manufacturing’s high quality and efficiency can be a considerable challenge, requiring significant fluctuations in resources and human resources and forcing some robust decisions concerning employment and budget issues.
Working with a managed services provider like OceanCyber offers your professional business insight on the best way to optimize your technology resources and skilled support in the design, implementation, and support of any new technology strategy.
From data breaches to hacks, manufacturing firms face the genuine potential of significant losses from cyber events. A successful cyberattack on a manufacturer can be devastating: Not only are cash and intellectual property at stake, but a successful takedown of any part of the manufacturing process can halt production – potentially for days.
In addition, the growth of IoT gadgets and networks makes these companies even more vulnerable to attacks. Specialists forecast that the rate of industrial cyberattacks will only increase over the next decade.
IT solutions for manufacturing must offer robust cybersecurity services that can help producers minimize these risks. OceanCyber keeps your business secure with:

Technology has become an essential differentiator in the finance and accounting industry. To attract and keep clients and proficient employees, you should provide the sophisticated technology they expect.
But it’s hard to keep on top of and be a professional in all the latest technologies that are accessible. By outsourcing IT, services, financial services firms can gain immediate access to the newest expertise and guidance.
Security is another huge concern for the financial services industry. Data breaches involving financial services firms increased by 480% from 2017 to 2018. Cybercrime now costs the financial services sector more than any other industry, with no end in sight.
