The Wonderware Intelligence software brings people, data and processes together. Overcome the Industrial Data Challenge and use your data to maintain competitiveness.
The Wonderware Intelligence solution
Contextualize production data, merge data sources and start analyzing
Taken individually, data sources generally bring valuable information to end users. However, when different data sources are assembled together in a single, contextualized and trusted data set covering industrial operations as a whole, the business value of manufacturing data really thrives.
The Wonderware Intelligence software synthesizes data from across the plant, revealing relationships and insights that would be all but invisible otherwise. It models data into manageable chunks, so that industrial teams can easily track performance against the metrics that matter most – in time enough to make a difference. The Wonderware Intelligence solution consists out of 2 software components: the Intelligence Server (ETL software) and the Intelligence Analytics Client (visualisation software).
Intelligence Server is an ETL system that provides the core services for managing the acquisition, aggregation and persistence of operational metrics across connected data sources. The software uniquely manages contextualization of information across multiple sources of time stamp and relational data, and stores extracted information in a SQL data store optimized for retrieval.
The Intelligence Server is highly scalable, and can be established in a hierarchical data structure for aggregating multiple databases into one data store. The database provides open, ﬂexible access with Intelligence Clients (see below), or for any of your preferred analytics, business intelligence, or client tools.
Industrial ETL: Extract, Transform and Load
The Wonderware Intelligence Solution is ETL software that has been developed specifically for manufacturing. It makes it possible to merge and transform data from all different data sources into a single contextualized data set (Microsoft SQL Server based).
Configure your Information Model
The Intelligence’s Information Model is conﬁgured and structured using three standard components: Data sources, Measures and Dimensions. Build an ETL model that integrates perfectly with your data sources to make the most out of your data. Stop spending too much time on manually collecting your data and transforming it into in Excel sheets over and over again.
Connect to a wide variety of data sources
The Wonderware Intelligence Server can connect to a wide variety of data source systems. Data sources include SQL Server or Oracle databases, Text files, Schneider Electric/AVEVA applications (Wonderware MES, InBatch, Historian, etc.); enterprise data and third-party sources such as historians, MES, HMI/SCADA; and other plant systems.
Create time-based relationships
Intelligence’s unique ‘timeslicing’ functionality enables you to answer the questions you weren’t able to answer before. It transforms time-series data into contextualized aggregates by processing historian data in context with discrete/string tags or external events (batch, MES, process and equipment events). The Intelligence software extends context references with full definition and specifications in one integrated database.
Intelligence Analytics Client is a user-friendly self service analytics tool, allowing end users from the plant floor to corporate level to create a wide variety of charts and dashboards. Transform data into valuable information by exploring and analyzing your data, monitor your KPI’s and gain meaningful insights.
The simple drag and drop capabilities enable users to quickly visualize and analyze Intelligence data. Share your insights within your organization and deliver role-based information for all required organization levels.
Transform data into visual information
Make your data come alive by transforming large numbers of records into easy understandable charts. Use the contextualized data set coming from the Intelligence Server to build interactive dashboards where end-users can easily request the information they need. Visual information can be processed much times faster by the human brain than plain text and is also easier to remember.
Build a dashboard within minutes
The user-friendly interface makes it easy for everyone within your organization to build a dashboard. Create eye-catching and easy understandable visualizations that really make sense to the people using it.
Search for correlations
Discover unknown relationships in the process by comparing data from two or more variables. Set multiple variables against each other and view what influence they have.
Monitor your KPI’s
Keep track on the metrics that matter most. Dashboards can be refreshed at any time with the latest information thanks to the near real-time data updates.
Drive effective collaboration
Share dashboards with anyone, anywhere, anytime, with the publishing tool that simplifies distribution across your organisation. Set up the Intelligence Analytics Dashboard Server and give your people access to a personalized dashboard portal.
Expand your analytical platform
New insights raise follow-up questions. Deep dive into your data and answer increasingly complex questions. When your organization is ready, it is also possible to integrate advanced analytical techniques such as R and Python to take your analytical platform to the next level.
