Oliotalo is now Distence
We have changed our name to better reflect the core of our offering, Distributed Intelligence. Oliotalo is now Distence.
Regardless of the industry, digitalization of assets is more and more the way to achieve competitive advantage, be it in the form of new smart services, cost management, higher uptime or better customer service. Simply connecting your assets does not cut it any longer. M. Porter and J. Heppelman in their vision of smart connected products identify 4 levels: monitoring, control, optimization and autonomy. The two last require intelligence from the products, and even connecting products without leaving the option to evolve to the next levels, calls for intelligence. For the past decade Distence has focused on making assets intelligent. Making industrial assets aware of themselves and their surroundings and enabling the building of a system of systems.
As our business is growing and more and more of our solutions end up outside of Finland, we hope our new name, Distence, communicates better our core knowhow and expertise - Distributed Intelligence.
