Enterprise-level software simplifies data management
Last month, this company launched its Plantweb Optics Data Lake (photo), an enterprise-level data-management software solution that helps manufacturers reduce data complexity so that they can fully leverage operations data across a production site or from multiple sites to improve profitability enterprise-wide. This new advanced data-management solution securely identifies, collects and contextualizes disparate data, at scale, either on-premises or using cloud technology. Today, this valuable manufacturing data is often in different formats and siloed across a plant, posing significant impediments to a company’s digital transformation initiatives. By effectively unifying this data, companies can establish a sound data foundation that can be leveraged by various digital solutions. — Emerson Automation Solutions, Austin, Tex.
