Emerson launches Plantweb Optics Data Lake 

Emerson announced the launch of its Plantweb Optics Data Lake, which helps manufacturers reduce data complexity.

The new advanced data management solution securely identifies, collects and contextualizes disparate data at scale. This includes data that is often in different formats and siloed across a plant.

“Many legacy systems at manufacturing sites across the world are already over a decade old, and they’re often isolated from each other, impeding teams from effectively accessing data at scale for operational improvements,” said Peter Zornio, chief technology officer of Emerson’s Automation Solutions business. “Aggregating information between systems without disrupting production is extremely complex and difficult. Emerson’s software allows users to securely manage operational data centrally, scale it easily and gain critical insight into their operations at the enterprise level.”
