Organize your data for stronger return

Posted by Amy Thibault on Oct 26, 2022 11:30:00 AM

 

 

Operational data can be very messy and often times lives in many different places: internal systems, spreadsheets, email messages, hand written notes, even mental notes, and more. You need a way to manage all this information so it's available to you and your authorized users at any time for any reason.

By pooling all your operations data together into a cloud-based platform and utilizing cloud applications, you can simplify and cut down on the number of systems you need to support your operations. We've all heard the saying 'sometimes more is less' right? It totally proves true when it comes to your operational data; simplify where it's all combined and stored to get the most from it all.

Why centralizing data in the cloud matters

Posted by Amy Thibault on Mar 1, 2022 11:15:00 AM

 

 

 

 

If your company isn't centralizing its data you may be missing out on increasing productivity in your business.

 

Centralizing data means putting all your operational data into one single place. By consolidating data, your authorized company employees will have quick and easy access from anywhere. All that will be required is a secure internet connection.

 

Our SaaS (Software as a Service) and SCADA helps your operations compile data from any digital monitoring hardware via gateways that support various protocols into a single centralized cloud location. From a single source, we can deliver real-time data to your computer or mobile device that allows authorized end-users to actively see the information you decide is relevant to each person or role within your organization.

Applying advanced analytics

Posted by Amy Thibault on Feb 1, 2022 11:23:00 AM

 

 

You may assume a cloud-based SCADA platform is just another operational system like all the others.

You’re ready to see what it can really do, and it’s the same for digital technology. With those sensors and remote systems installed, now it can give you a lot of actionable data that can reduce downtime, boost profits and enable your employees to be more efficient.

It's no secret that skilled internal resources are becoming more and more difficult to find, and keep. The first step on the road to creating more value from your current internal resources is to automate as much as possible so those skilled people can focus on more important tasks.

Starting the journey to autonomous operations or even the first step of starting to automate at all, is usually installing a SCADA system with a deep sensor reach, giving you extensive data on all the important points. That’s followed by creating a communications interface that sends the data to your office in real time.

Take the smooth road to ESG and fiscal performance

Posted by Amy Thibault on Oct 1, 2021 10:30:49 AM

Sometimes there are fears that ESG has to be counterproductive to the bottom line. You read about some organizations promising to blanket the globe with millions of carbon-capturing trees and realize that those trees are also absorbing a lot of capital. Investors may like the leaves in programs like that, but when those programs are fertilized with barrels of red ink, it’s suddenly not so appealing.

Fortunately there are ways to achieve both—and Emerson's Zedi Cloud SCADA Solutions can be a black-ink-producing, carbon-reducing and safety-enabling option for companies trying to achieve both. The road to digital transformation for increased ESG opportunities that present fiscal responsibility may be much smoother than you think.

Make sense out of nonsense: tame your big data

Posted by Community User on Mar 28, 2012 1:34:00 AM

This blog post has been updated as of May 4th, 2021

Several years ago I was at a customer site and there were two executives who were struggling to figure out if a field they recently purchased was producing as much as they were expecting.

They had over fifty reports in their system, but they didn't know where to look. It didn't help that they had multiple systems and each one had slightly different numbers. Everything this company did was electronic-based and they collected so much data that obviously they had this information somewhere. The big question, though, was where do you look?
