The Smart Industry Management Platform (SIMP) is a technology platform created by the Autonomous Cluster Fund «Innovative Technologies Park», operating under the Tech Garden brand, to promote Industry 4.0 technologies in the industrial sector of Kazakhstan.
The SIMP platform is based on the concept of a "single window", according to which "Electronic government for citizens" is implemented. Only in the case of SIMP users are IT, engineering and innovation companies, industrial enterprises, the public sector, research institutes and higher education institutions, i.e. all participants in the ecosystem of Industry 4.0.
The main goal of the platform is to introduce elements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to the industrial enterprises of the country and the development of the IT industry.
And the main tasks of the SIMP platform are: — combining the efforts of all market participants in a phased digital transformation of the industry; — creating an ecosystem for widespread scaling of successful projects.
On the platform, industrial enterprises form their applications with technical specifications, and IT, engineering or innovative companies publish information about their products and solutions. The system analyzes all the entered data and gives the best results, offering optimal solutions. IT solutions and technical tasks undergo initial examination, which reduces the time for selecting the necessary technologies and accelerates their implementation.
Testing the algorithms of the platform in a test mode showed that the industry has a high need for automation and digitalization of processes. And IT companies have ready-made solutions. However, the lack of an effective communication channel did not allow mutually interested parties to find each other.
The development team evaluated and selected the most convenient functionality for all SIMP users. The most modern approaches to software development have been applied, which ensures fast processing of all data and maximum convenience when using the platform's capabilities.
