Insight | December 2018 update - part 1
Getting you operational quicker than ever before
Exciting news, the December 2018 update for AVEVA Insight is here! With a lot to cover I've broken the content into multiple blogs: today's topic is getting started.
This month we have some great new features to help you get up and running with your operational cloud platform as fast as possible (we thought we did this well before, but I think you'll agree this is easier still). Plus updates to our publisher with improved performance ensures you get the information you need when and where you need it, quickly and seamlessly.
What's new in December 2018 - part 1?
- Discover Insight
- Insight Assistant
- Updated Insight publisher plus new DMZ secure link
- Performance improvements
Introducing the Discover Insight page
Most people will be familiar with how easy it is to get up and running with cloud technology - think LinkedIn or the Google suite - and how you run through a series of gradual steps to build proficiency. We are bringing that same concept to the industrial world with the Discover Insight page.
When signing up to a new AVEVA Insight account, users will automatically be taken through the key steps to unlocking operational data and turning it into a live information feed for effective, data-driven decisions.
As you can see here, Discover Insight covers adding data, creating content, inviting users, sharing content, and getting mobile. There's even a handy reminder on how to learn what's new in the platform.
You can choose to see this page every time you launch Insight, or jump straight to your Home Page. But don't panic, you can always get back to the Discover Insight page using the navigation menu (top left).
New Insight Assistant
Supporting the Discover Insight page is the new Insight Assistant; a handy stepper that guides users through key activities such as creating content, or adding team members to your account. The screenshot above shows the Insight Assistant on the Discover Insight page, but it will also appear when you try various tasks for the first time. Follow the steps to get the most out of your system. Simple.
Updated Insight Publisher plus new DMZ Secure Link
For all you Administrators out there we have improved the reliability of connections to our leading HMI offers such as InTouch and Citect SCADA through the Insight Publisher.
We have also introduced the new DMZ Secure Link. This is really helpful when using architectures with firewalls, and even supports daisy chaining through multiple DMZs. For full technical details read the Download and use DMZ Secure Link help file.
