The power of data in context: transforming industrial data into actionable intelligence


Discover What Drives Plant Performance

Dashboard, reports, and other tools are only as good as the data they access.

Taken individually, data sources generally bring valuable information to end users. However, when data sources are assembled together in a single, trusted data set covering industrial operations as a whole, the business value of visualisation tools thrives.

Intelligence synthesises data from across the plant, revealing relationships that would be all but invisible otherwise. It models big data into manageable chunks, so that industrial teams can track performance against the metrics that matter most – in time enough to make a difference.

Gain new insights into optimisation potentials that may be hidden in disconnected functional domains or in separate datasets. By providing a single version of the truth and contextualising data, Intelligence helps you make strategic sense out of your production data.

The Business Case

Intelligence continuously computes the metrics that are important to improving plant, multi-plant, or infrastructure performance.

This enables tighter adherence to operating goals with near real-time resolution. You will be better able to understand the impact of planning, execution, staffing, and equipment behaviour on key strategic variables such as quality, performance, material, and energy consumption.

This powerful solution helps you to maximise return on investment in plant floor and enterprise solutions, unlocking the business relevant context hidden in the distributed data of your existing applications. It adds the information and insight you need for more transparency into the true cost and profit contributions from each of your operations.

Everyone on the Same Metric

Enabling Collaborative Operations

Ensuring that everyone has timely access to their key metrics is critical, but unless metrics are aligned with operational strategies, people could be working at cross-purposes. Intelligence enables true operations collaboration by offering actionable information, easy-to-read, easy-to-understand, and tailored to the different operational roles in your plant. It enables both expert and casual users to benefit from the process know-how that already exists in your operations.

Connect Multiple Plant and Enterprise Data Sources Simultaneously

All Your Data Sources, Connected

Connect multiple plant and enterprise data sources simultaneously to reveal how disparate industrial operations affect each other. Its operational intelligence tools model these relationships among vast amounts of data in the context of KPIs. Powerful software then calculates and displays variations in metrics in near real-time. A user-friendly analytics dashboard helps users monitor progress and share results across an array of devices, anytime and anywhere.


Make Strategic Sense Out of Data

Without the organised data modelling of Intelligence, making sense of so much data is difficult, if not impossible. With Intelligence’s modeling, you get a single version of operating truth that ERP systems, data warehouses, and enterprise business intelligence tools need to make strategic sense out of production or operations data.

Predefined data models shorten time-to-insight significantly, equipping you to see value from day one. Intelligence eliminates the need for IT services to create reports and dashboards, and empowers users with self-service access to operational intelligence.

Intelligence Architecture

Intelligence is comprised of two key parts: a server and its clients.


Intelligence Server

The Intelligence Server is the heart of the solution. Providing data acquisition, aggregation, contextualisation, and organisation of data from multiple sources into a single, business-friendly information model. Time-slicing is a unique Intelligence capability that correlates time-series data from process historians with events such as batches, shifts, and equipment states. This enables calculations and analysis that would otherwise be difficult and error-prone. Intelligence also includes pre-defined models for data sources, empowering you with dashboards in a matter of minutes. The Intelligence Server is scalable — from a single site/single server to multiple servers, enabling data hosting from multiple sites.

Analytics Client

Analytics Client

Intelligence comes integrated with Tableau Software, which has been positioned by industry analyst Gartner as a leader in the BI (Business Intelligence) Magic Quadrant since 2013. Tableau Software is a user-friendly analytics and visualisation tool that users from the plant floor to corporate offices can leverage to explore and analyse Intelligence data, view KPIs, and create charts and dashboards. It is a self-reliant approach that significantly reduces the need for IT services to create reports and dashboards, and empowers end-users to access the information they need immediately.

Intelligence Features

Intelligence reveals hidden information from your plant data sources by assembling and organizing a single information model for easy reporting, analysis, and visualisation.

Keep Your Eye on the Ball

Monitor production, materials consumption, quality, energy utilisation, or other metrics via intuitive, intelligent dashboards. When you can see, correct, improve, or maintain more easily and effectively, it keeps everyone in the game.

Synthesize Data from Everywhere

Blend data from AVEVA or third-party applications. Tap into the power of System Platform as well as your MES, ERP, LIMS, or PDM for a truly consistent enterprise-wide view. See transactional and historian data in mutual context.

Monetise Your Data

Easy-to-use configuration tools help define cost, production, quality, energy, material consumption, and other metrics from disparate data sources. The powerful transformation engine of Intelligence computes those metrics at the right time, and renders them consumable by presentation, planning, and data warehousing software.

Cross Industry and Cross Function

Use Intelligence software in any industry — food and beverage, primary metals, chemicals, oil and gas, energy, or infrastructure. It’s not only a great enterprise manufacturing intelligence solution, it can also be applied in power generation, transportation, supply chain, and virtually all other industrial operations. Wherever you can capture data, Intelligence can help you make sense of it.

Intelligence functionality (BI Gateway) in the Cloud
