Overview

About Advanced Visualization

Advanced Visualization provides you a powerful way to visualize the data that is available within Predix Essentials.

The Predix Essentials Advanced Visualization module enables you to create customized dashboards that display alerts, cases, and asset information in the form of charts or reports. This provides advanced business intelligence type capabilities to analyze the vast amount of data that is available to you in the system. These visualizations provide you with access to powerful tools that can be used.

Advanced Visualization Data Sources

Advanced Visualization provides out of the box capabilities that enable you to visualize data for the following Predix Essentials features and modules:

  • Alerts
  • Analytics
  • Assets
  • Baseline entities and queries
  • Cases
  • General recommendations
  • SmartSignal
Each of these features is associated with a set of data sources in Advanced Visualization. The data sources contain a set of logically related fields that allow you to create and customize the visualizations based on the access privileges that you have for the specific feature.
Note: Although you have access to all the data sources, you must also have access to the required capabilities to create visualizations using these data sources. You can visualize the data for the assets based on the permissions granted to your Predix Essentials user account.

The following table provides high-level information about the data sources available for the supported modules or features:
