Schneider Electric Australia has announced updates to its Wonderware Online cloud platform for operational data management.
Wonderware Online, built on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, provides users with a solution that combines operational and information technology with security.
The platform is used to consolidate distributed data sources, contextualise that data through advanced applications, and provide enterprise wide access from anywhere on any device.
It includes the Wonderware Online Insight Connector, a productivity tool that allows users to link time-series data stored in the platform to Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Excel online to run custom formulas, perform ad hoc analysis, and create Excel-based reports and charts.
The system provides greater flexibility to access operational data, improved cybersecurity and enhanced navigation capabilities. It also provides accelerated feature updates and augmented intelligent newsfeed analytics – with pattern detection technology that highlights unusual data behaviours and alerts users of potential issues.
