Intelligent technologies for manufacturing and retail challenges


We are focusing on helping industrial companies in their digital transformation by providing them the required support and tools to adopt new ICT technologies that increase their competitiveness and unlock infinite possibilities to improve the manufacturing process with sufficient interoperability between traditional Operational Technologies and ICT.


Through the research and adoption of ICT technologies such as IoT, Big Data, AI, and Cloud Computing, we are helping organizations to face the Fourth Industrial Revolution, also named Industry 4.0, which aims at digitizing the European Industry and fostering digital transformation, based on Digital Platforms, Large-scale Piloting, Ecosystem building, and standardization. In addition, the Sector is contributing to the development of a sustainable economy for the retail industry by giving citizens’ easy access to affordable and high-quality consumables.


ARI has a unique position to help European industrial companies in their digital transformation, thanks to its deep knowledge and a team of experts in the Manufacturing and Retail domain with a broad experience in Digital Platforms combining the most relevant ICT technologies such as IoT, Big Data, AI, Cybersecurity, HPC, among others. Furthermore, the development of innovative solutions with the capacity of the number one ICT company in Europe, is fundamental to transfer solutions to the market.
