As manufacturers across industries look to leverage their operations data to drive real business improvement, they are finding that it can be a significant challenge to access and aggregate it in meaningful ways because operations data is often stored in a wide range of formats and siloed across systems, functions and facilities.

To extract real value from this data, it must be brought together and consolidated in context and made ready for downstream processing and analytics, and it must be done safely and reliably. But how do you move hundreds of thousands – or even millions – of data streams across legacy operations technology (OT) networks without disruption to any plant system?

In this webinar, you’ll learn about how you can overcome these obstacles using Emerson’s Plantweb Optics and the AWS. Plantweb Optics is an enterprise-scale data management solution that helps manufacturers fully leverage operations data across a production site or from multiple sites by securely connecting to, collecting and contextualizing disparate industrial data at scale using the cloud.

Fully integrated with AWS, Plantweb Optics is facilitating the ingestion of operations data at scales previously not conceivable from plant data systems so that manufacturers can establish a sound data foundation from which new insights can be unlocked to drive enterprise-wide gains.

Join us for this webinar and learn about:

• Connecting to the right operations data. There’s valuable data outside of the plant or enterprise historian. New data streams from smart IOT devices, control system meta data, and process alarms or events are all examples of important data with untapped potential.

• Extracting more value from your data. Built-in object data models contextualize operations data in relation to its asset and place in the overall enterprise prior to cloud ingestion so that it’s ready for use and the total cost of ownership is reduced.

• Managing and monitoring all your connections through a single user interface. Avoid the pitfalls and costs of having to support dozens or hundreds of dedicated interfaces developed to different standards by a multitude of vendors.

• Real-world implementation. Hear how a global industrial supplier implemented Plantweb Optics to consolidate its operations data across multiple sites on AWS to drive reliability, safety, and optimize production.
