I caught up with a really interesting software company that I’ve been following named Soley. I shared a bit about them after our first discussion last year and I was impressed with their unique solution. At that time, I saw how they used cloud, analytics, and collaborative decision-making to understand the impact products have on the value chain. They’ve formalized the approach, which they now call product mining, to help analyze product portfolios to gain efficiencies. They leverage complexity analytics, value patterns, and decision intelligence to create and analyze a graph model (aka enterprise digital twin) that allows their customers to gain transparency into portfolio complexity and inefficiencies so they can reduce ballast and side products. Thank you Maximilian Kissel and Sven Litke for the update.
