Drive

Data & Events management

Drive presents an intuitive interface for real-time operations as well as a foundation for historical performance analyses, root-cause & downtime analyses and technical asset management.

Data Engine ingests high-speed time series data from any OEM SCADA, hardware, IIoT device or third-party data system to normalize information.  It then structures and  curates raw data to ensure data is trusted for visualization and analytics applications.

Event Engine applies OEM and user-defined criteria to identify operational events affecting production. Users can then catalogue, edit and curate them for advanced troubleshooting, reporting and notification.

Data and Event Engines can be integrated with optional Field Service Management and Advanced Analytics modules and connected to third-party business applications using standard APIs.
