Nukon’s advanced analytics solution is set to grace the world stage at PI World on April 23-27 in San Francisco.
We are in the midst of a digital revolution, dubbed by founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum as the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”.
Now more than ever, industrial operations and manufacturers are racing to ‘unlock’ process data to leverage their plant-floor information. It’s the challenge of the decade. In order to address this challenge, we need to be looking at what time-series databases and data historians can do.Correct use of these database technologies will mean the difference between simply having data, and being able to analyse and use data to maintain operations and improve the performance of the plant.
The world has more data than it knows what to do with. The statistics are incredible: IBM says the world creates two and a half quintillion bytes or 2,500,000,000,000,000,000 bytes of data EVERY DAY.
In a previous blog post we outlined the 5 key benefits of computer-integrated manufacturing and introduced the concept of the Integrated Manufacturing Operations Centre (IMOC).
There’s no question that digital operations are transforming manufacturing. A range of innovations that fall under the 'IIoT’ or Industry 4.0 umbrella all point towards more computer-integrated manufacturing operations or the ‘connected enterprise’.
