Data Historian

The centralized historization of big real-time data is one of the main features of system:inmation. The data historian function provides a solution to collect, archive, aggregate and distribute vast amounts of data from a variety of data sources such as Distributed Control Systems (DCS), PLCs, Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and Log Files. Focusing on industrial automation standards (Classic OPC, OPC UA and ODBC) as well as structured file-based input, system:inmation ensures fast and secure data access. All aspects of the data historian function – and its unique big data architecture – are described within the following chapter.
