The power of the IIoT is equal parts empowering and scary, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating. Ultimately, the hardest part about harnessing the power of IIoT – and your data – is taking the first step. Regardless of whether you work in oil and gas, power generation, or manufacturing, it has never been easier (or cheaper) to access the vast amounts of data generated by your plant(s). But as the volume and diversity of that data has increased, companies have struggled to make sense of it or even use it to power things like predictive maintenance.
That’s why GE Digital has developed Predix Essentials designed to act as a bridge from on premise software to the power of cloud-based Industrial IoT, making it easier than ever for our customers to visualize and analyze industrial data – to drive real results.
With Predix Essentials, industrial companies can
- Easily connect to a massive variety of industrial, enterprise and external data sources
- Build interactive dashboards leveraging over 100 charting options
- Analyze data using filtering, drill-downs and statistical models
- Automate interactive and embeddable reports
- Create closed-loop condition-based maintenance processes to monitor, detect, analyze and respond to events
Predix Essentials is also the foundation of GE Digital’s cloud-based offerings, connecting data from Operational Technology (like compressors, pumps or other assets) and IT data (like ERM software). By pulling together data from multiple sources, and using the compute and storage power both at the edge and the in the cloud, Predix Essentials provides an accessible framework from which users can access rich user features to support common Industrial IoT needs.
This makes is easier than ever for industrial companies to optimize their maintenance and process strategies, driving millions of dollars of savings in performance improvements.
