Enterprise-level software aims to simplify data management

11 July 2021

Emerson has launched Plantweb Optics Data Lake, an enterprise-level data management software solution that is said to help manufacturers reduce data complexity.

This data management solution securely identifies, collects and contextualises disparate data, at scale, either on-premises or using cloud technology. Today, this data is often in different formats and siloed across a plant, posing significant impediments to a company’s digital transformation initiatives. By unifying the data, companies can establish a sound data foundation that can be leveraged by various digital solutions.
For example, Emerson’s data lake software, which is integrated into the Plantweb Optics platform, can seamlessly work with advanced analytics applications powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence – or connect with other providers’ analytics and dashboard toolkits – to drive performance improvement and increase revenue. Because the software was designed to serve as a centralised information technology (IT) solution that draws from Emerson’s broad operational technology (OT) expertise, it reduces the need for data science specialists.
Plantweb Optics Data Lake runs on various cloud-computing platforms, enabling companies to implement a wide range of use cases from analytics applications that make use of machine learning to KPIs and dashboards, digital twins and other applications for improving reliability and sustainability. Bridging the gap between OT and IT domains, the software consolidates manufacturing data from a variety of systems, protocols and data architectures – even legacy systems – across a plant and multiple facilities by moving it into the cloud and ensuring that it is ready for use.
