Accelerated Initiatives to Enable Remote Workers and Increase Collaboration Increase Investments in Operational Historians-Data Platforms

New ARC Advisory Group research on the Operational Historians-Data Platforms market reveals the operational time-series Historian/industrial data platform is changing, and its market continues to increase. With the pandemic, remote connected worker and digital transformation, and the introduction of new smart technologies and connected devices, ARC is seeing a huge growth in data volume and data types led by data from the increasing Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) investments and a high-end user demand for data. In today’s digital world where manufacturing requires optimization, there is one thing for certain: data accessibility and speed of access are driving manufacturing performance across the enterprise. Data is strategic to manufacturing. New data storage platforms that are more secure and enable connectivity and enterprise-wide data access are fundamental in today’s data driven manufacturing world.

"2020 will go down as the year of the pandemic and the shift toward remote connected workers. Industrial companies had to enable remote connected workers with the ability to access data and information so that remote workers were able to make data-driven decisions quickly from home," according to Janice Abel, Principal Consultant ,and key author of ARC's Operational Historians-Data Platforms Market Research Report.
