Industry partners Cloudleaf, Inc., an emerging leader in digital supply chain solutions, and Tech Mahindra, a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering services and solutions, are joining forces to bring the industry’s most powerful Edge IoT solution to market. The two companies are showcasing their joint solutions at the AT&T Business Summit, which is being held from September 25th to September 28th, 2018 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.
It’s important to remember that data is not just transmitted or accessed by a person, says Arora. "With the growth of IoT—sensors on pallets, containers, conveyor belts or forklifts in a warehouse, for example—devices are constantly sending information," he points out. Encryption of data at the edge and in the cloud with AES, PKI or SSL certificates—in transit and at rest—is essential, he adds.
Enter Cloudleaf, a four-year old provider of digital supply chain technology that addresses this very specific market opportunity that sits between e-commerce and the edge. “We are playing at the intersection of two mega trends,” says Cloudleaf CEO Mahesh Veerina. “One is the digitization of commerce and the other is collecting data at the edge.”
Cloudleaf’s CEO, Mahesh Veerina, talks to Gary Mintchell from “The Manufacturing Connection” on the two paradigm shifts that are transforming commerce. Successful digitalization requires data. Data, in turn, originates often from sensors. The Industrial Internet of Things runs on this data providing a valuable use case of tying a manufacturing enterprise together from supply chain through customer experience. Mahesh Veerina, CEO of Cloudleaf, walked me through an application based on his company’s technology that indeed ties a supply chain in the pharma industry together. Start with sensors on approximately 5,000 pallets. Each meshes via sub-MHz unlicensed radios through 30 intelligent...
This award recognizes the change-agents and companies who are not afraid to try something new, encourage others and make sure their organizations, customers and partners remain open to new ideas, systems, technology and partnerships. Cloudleaf aims to transform supply chain visibility and optimization for enterprises by capturing real-time data from operations using a novel, patented approach that employs sensor, mobile, cloud and machine learning technologies.
The introduction of digitization in pharmaceutical manufacturing will also be instrumental in enabling a seamless data exchange across the pharmaceutical supply chain. The connectivity of product, people and process is what constitutes the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Manufacturing will undoubtedly be the biggest beneficiary of IIoT. Thus, industries such as pharma and healthcare will certainly stand a good chance to continue to benefit from IIoT.
Cloudleaf CEO, Mahesh Veerina discusses common challenges among supply chains of manufacturing, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, distribution as well heavy capital industries and how removing silos helps companies consolidate resources for greater efficiency.

Whether filling a prescription, cracking open a bottle of over–the-counter pain-killers or receiving drugs through an IV infusion, anything less than 100% is simply unacceptable. Manufacturers have long known that when it comes to safety of their drugs and medical devices, errors can add up to more than law suits, damage to the brand or lost profits, but pose significant risks to health and life.
The Next Manufacturing Revolution Is Here. Economic growth has been slowing for the past 50 years, but relief might come from an unexpected place — a new form of manufacturing that is neither what you thought it was nor where you thought it was.
