Process Data Historian (Data Historian for short)
A Data Historian (also known as a Process Historian or Operational Historian) is a software application that stores and serves out production and process data to other software applications or consumers. A process historian differs to a relational database as it natively stores raw data as “time series” (value and actual time stamp).
Time Series Historian
High performance historians store time series data efficiently with minimal disk space. Fast retrieval is paramount for accessing the vast amounts of information gathered by process data historians.
Enterprise Information Solutions
Governments, regulatory bodies and business have all been steadily increasing their demand for more accurate, validated and timely data. Organisation Compliance Reporting & Data Analysis requirements have therefore naturally become increasingly important as deregulation and privatisation takes a hold across the globe. Managing assets holistically according to how the business manages the asset and not how the operations group repairs and maintains the asset, no longer needs to be mutually exclusive. More and more organisations are turning to enterprise data historians as the vehicle to store critical information that they rely on and trust.
Enterprise Data Historian
When designed and implement correctly, an enterprise data historian creates a lifelong dependency for organisational user groups that are serious about sharing information and quality management.
Technology now delivers high speed data acquisition, abstracted data structures which fit specific asset models, mega storage, caching of enterprise KPIs and production performance management information. This means that at all levels of the organisation the appropriate information can be presented to all user groups. The enterprise historian liberates asset performance information and exposes information historically only considered precious by Operators and Maintenance personnel. Those days are over.
Enterprise Information Systems
The choice of which technology platform to use can be an expensive one. Overall, if the process data historian is over specified for the application, when expansion time comes it will be painful. Getting this right is something Parasyn can help you with.
When the data storage platform is appropriately implemented and operational, it opens the flood gate to other enterprise applications including asset optimisation, predictive analytics (machine learning), workflow, advanced analytics and production and compliance reporting.
