Accelerated Initiatives in Operational Historian/Data Platforms Increase Production Performance

According to ARC Advisory Group’s new report, the market for Operational Time-series Historian/Industrial Data Platforms is changing and continues to increase. The pandemic was an accelerator for the remote connected worker and digital transformation, and this drives the need for massive amounts of data and data types in today’s digital world, where manufacturing requires the optimization of data accessibility, ease of use, and speed of access, which are driving manufacturing performance across the enterprise. Data is strategic to manufacturing and operations. New data storage platforms that are more secure and enable connectivity and enterprise-wide data access such as cloud, edge, data hubs, and data lakes are fundamental in today’s data-driven manufacturing world.

"2021 is a year of recovery and pent-up demand from the pandemic and it increased the need for operational historians, enterprise historians, and new data platforms. The shift toward connected and collaborative workers continued into 2021. Industrial companies continue to enable remote connected workers with the ability to access data and enable faster and better data-driven decisions.
