The Challenge

To meet customer demand, O’Brien Fine Foods operates a 24-hour production environment, which requires ‘always-on’ IT systems capable of providing constant access to critical business applications and data.

Following the company’s expansion, the IT infrastructure came under increased strain, due in part to the introduction of increased numbers of IOT devices such as electronic scales, ovens, and temperature gauges.

As well as this, the food business is an industry of rapid development, with new machinery and production methods constantly being introduced. For this reason, O’Brien Fine Foods needed an infrastructure with the bandwidth to accommodate sudden developments and changes. The company also wanted to provide employees with the ability to work effectively from anywhere in the facility, while prioritising network security, and it was with these requirements in mind that it approached Novi.
