Former global technology lead at Microsoft, Jake Stride, says Western Australian software developer Silverhorse Technologies’ flagship product is a “missing link” in the digital transition of many asset intensive companies.
“I chose Silverhorse because I can see the opportunity to bring even greater savings to customers with dynamic data in a centralised hub,” the Perth-based company’s new CEO said.
“This world-class technology is unique because it sits on top of existing infrastructure and applications, orchestrating everything. AssetHive becomes the heart, brain and soul of the project and I’m really excited to lead the next generation of digital transformation with this technology.
“Having seen the challenges from both sides of the fence, I know AssetHive is the missing link to increase velocity, empower front line workers and enable asset savings.”
Founded 2001, Silverhorse is said to be undergoing a transition of its own, “from engineering software to advanced data hub solutions” and specifically the AssetHive data hub that connects IoT and big data to projects and operations.
“Stride’s deep expertise in digitally transforming heavy industries, in collaboration with Silverhorse’s landmark success enabling $1 billion of efficiency savings at a gas plant in Western Australia currently scaling out across a number of Woodside assets, will prove a valuable asset for the future of the company,” Silverhorse said.
Stride was also previously a project director at BHP.
Silverhorse this year opened a second office in Aberdeen, Scotland.
