Capture and store high-fidelity industrial big data, to unlock trapped potential for operational improvements
Big Data – Collection, Storage and Analysis
Capture and store high-fidelity industrial data. Historian is a high-performance process database capable of storing the huge volumes of data generated from today’s industrial facilities.
Historian combines advanced data storage and compression techniques with an industry-standard query interface to ensure open access to your process, alarm, and event data. It enables faster, more informed decisions while keeping your team fully informed on operational performance.
This video shows you how easily Historian can tame large volumes of data, and put it to work for you.
Industrial Data Management
Historian is the first, large-volume plant data historian to unite high-speed data acquisition and storage with traditional relational database management.
Maintaining Business Continuity
High availability, full redundancy, and disaster recovery options keep your business running continuously.
A Complete Picture of Operational History
Unlike conventional relational databases that are not well-suited to production environments, Historian handles time-series data, as well as alarm and event data. Unique “block technology" captures plant data hundreds of times faster than a standard database system and utilises a fraction of conventional storage space.
Optimised Data Storage
Historian combines front-end, high-speed data collection with time-series extensions to an embedded Microsoft SQL Server relational database. Additionally, our patented “swinging door” data storage algorithm greatly reduces data storage requirements while preserving important data features.
Advanced Data Storage and Compression
Advanced data storage and compression combined with industry-standard query language provides easy, open access to all process, alarm and event data. This enables faster, more informed decisions while keeping everyone informed on operational performance.
Uncompromising Data Integrity
Regardless of your industry, Historian will maintain the data integrity needed for the most demanding requirements. Historian manages low bandwidth data communications, late coming information, and even data from systems with mismatched system clocks. Ensuring high resolution data is captured accurately every time.
Make Sense of Your Industrial Data
Advanced data storage and compression combined with industry-standard query language provides easy, open access to all process, alarm, and event data. This enables faster, more informed decisions while keeping everyone informed on operational performance.
Reduce data storage costs by more than 80 percent through ultra-efficient data storage algorithms.
Extract more value from legacy systems faster via proprietary, high-speed data acquisition and storage on a Microsoft SQL Server.

Collect, Validate, Archive
Capture data from basic single-node sources or highly-distributed sources anywhere in the world. Apply built-in data validation procedures to ensure data accuracy. Preserve everything from short-term diagnostics to long- term records needed to support regulatory requirements.
Millions of Data Tags
Historian’s ability to handle millions of tags provides plenty of capability to collect and store your vital process, alarm, and event data. Monitor a single process or an entire facility. Store data locally and aggregate at the enterprise level, fulfilling the most demanding analysis and reporting requirements.
Powerful Data Analytics Software
Historian enables you to leverage the true value of your data through powerful visualisation clients and analysis tools.
Advanced Data Retrieval Modes
Built-in advanced data retrieval modes make your data report queries easier to build, more efficient, and more powerful. Eliminating multiple versions of plant operating data in this way increases productivity, reduces errors, and lowers operating costs. Easy self-service production and performance reporting improves planning and compliance. Modes include: Time-in-State, Slope, Counter, Cyclic and Delta, Interpolated, Value state, and more.
Applications and Reporting
Generating real-time and historical data charts and reports has never been easier. The Historian Client includes multiple applications designed to maximise the value of data stored in Historian. Access to plant and process data through easy-to-use interfaces facilitates troubleshooting, flags inefficiencies, and eliminates the time-consuming process of locating data. Applications include: Trending, Reporting, Workbook, Query, and WebReporting.
Reporting and Analysis Tools
Being able to use data is just as important as storing it. Historian covers all of your data analysis and reporting needs. Display historian data via InTouch, or analyse it with Insight, Intelligence, SmartGlance and Dream Report. Or use the Historian Client desktop tool for viewing data trends and basic reports, putting near real-time and historical production details in the hands of operators, engineers, and operations managers.
Data in the Cloud
For customers wishing to host their Historian architecture in the cloud, we also offer Insight — an industrial information management solution that enables data accessibility and analysis anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Whether you are looking to move your industrial data storage to the cloud as a managed software-as-a-service (SaaS) application, or to complement and extend existing on-premises investments, Insight is an affordable option.
