A huge component in successful digital transformation initiatives is bringing together various silos of data to make available to analytics applications with the information generated being accessible to the right people at the right time.
An Amazon Web Services (AWS) article, Building an Industrial Data Platform on AWS with Emerson’s Plantweb Optics Data Lake, highlights how bringing these silos of operational technology (OT) data sources together enables the:
…capability to holistically analyze data across the enterprise [which] can greatly improve the value of industrial companies can extract from their OT data.
Emerson’s Ashish Umbarkar coauthors this article with two AWS consultants. They describe the Plantweb Optics Data Lake solution. It:
…provides a unified management interface with a modern architecture to ingest data from OT systems. It provides out of the box connectors to interface with a wide variety of industrial systems. These connectors can be managed from a central administration console, providing the ability to manage configuration, security, and updates from one application. The key to generating value with these data sets is organizing the data in context to the asset and its place in the overall enterprise. Plantweb Optics provides ability to centrally organize different data types (such as time series, alarms, events, files, pictures) in context to the asset hierarchy. Its built-in object data models ensure proper context is brought to the data prior to cloud ingestion. This lowers total cost of ownership by leveraging on-premises computing for lower value tasks.
