Brembo is an Italian-based global leader in the design, development, and production of braking systems for cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, and racing. When it came to the growth of its IT department, the company hit two speed bumps. The first challenge it faced was to develop a smart factory, and the second was evolving its analytic infrastructure to better meet the company’s goals for improving performance and user-friendliness.

To make sense of its big data environment, Brembo required an easy-to-use tool that anyone across the company could use, no matter what department. The right analytic tool would give Brembo a 360-degree view across the organization while helping them achieve the smart factory that they desired. The company turned to TIBCO Spotfire analytics for its ease of use, ability to address all of the company’s requirements, and suitability for teams across the organization.

Spotfire has been deployed across the organization for manufacturing, process optimization control, purchasing, quality control, and R&D. Within the manufacturing department, Spotfire is used for cluster cooling curves, predictive maintenance, and noise analysis and testing.

The platform also enables many users—business users, data administrators, and others—to use analytics without involving the IT departments. Data is made available to the groups who need it, when they need it. The tool also allows users to quickly build compelling visualizations and dashboards.

Looking to the future, Brembo will accelerate with Spotfire using it across the organization for new projects, allowing users to monitor production and understand all manufacturing processes.
