What is XaaS and its application in the cold chain


The letter “x” is widely used, mainly in mathematical language, to refer to a hidden value or one that can be filled in by more than one option. The idea of ​​the term XaaS comes precisely from there. It is a broad way of referring to anything that is offered “as a service”, or, in Portuguese, as a service.

XaaS is, therefore, a business modality that has several possibilities. A well-known example is SaaS, which stands for Software as a Service. There are other examples such as IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service, when equipment manufacturers provide the hardware in lease models, allowing the end customer to use the equipment for a period of time without having to immobilize it as a active.


Notice how the first letter of what is offered replaces the X? That's right, this happens not only with software, but also with communication services, platform, infrastructure and much more. Thus, XaaS can encompass two, three or more models that use cloud computing for activities that were previously performed physically.


Companies will be required to invest in equipment, software, data storage and cloud computing to comply with the legal requirements imposed by this new regulation.

Recently, ANVISA published Resolution RDC430, which regulates the activities of the drug manufacturing and distribution process and which will require the temperature registration of the entire mandatory chain as of May 2022.


This means that companies will be required to invest in equipment, software, data storage and cloud computing to comply with the legal requirements imposed by this new regulation. This will affect manufacturers, distributors and retailers, who will have to adapt to this new reality.


Imagine managing all this, which requires different professional specializations than those related to the core activity of these companies.


Faced with this challenge, the XaaS model becomes a great ally. Like? How about having devices that monitor temperature and humidity, which can be combined with geographic location in the logistics stage, all integrated into a single platform that allows remote configuration of all equipment, all delivered only with the payment of a fixed monthly fee ?


Other important points: the devices use a long battery life, maintenance and calibration of the devices are included in the service. It is a complete model that combines efficiency and convenience.
