The combination of Proficy Historian and Proficy Operations Hub provides a powerful data management solution with asset model context and visualization. Users receive aggregation of data across multiple data sources or historians, ability to define an asset model including tag mapping, and advanced trend analysis. Reduce costs with Historian ETL (Extract, Transfer, Load) for sophisticated file-oriented data transmission for Enterprise Historian, new Remote Collector Management, and more.

Remote Operations: Increase efficiency and productivity

Centralizing operations enables businesses with multiple locations or large sites to centralize operational views and enable remote access to information and control to support site operations – increasing efficiency and reducing downtime.

Watch how a remote operator in New York can detect, investigate and address an equipment problem in Indiana in this demo. The operator observes that part production has stopped, drills down to the specific equipment with a failure, determines the issue, and resolves it – all quickly and easily!

Capitalize on the Industrial Internet Oppportunity

Digital transformation starts with data

The industrial network of connected machines with data analytics is creating a new frontier of competitiveness for information-centric, modern organizations.

Asset-intensive companies are amongst those that create, or have the inherent potential to create vast amounts of data — data that, when assimilated and put in context, will open the door for operational transformation breakthrough.

Configuring the Excel Add-in for Historian

Microsoft Excel Add-In allows you to use Excel to interact with the configuration data within your Historian as well as query data for charting and reporting. Our open interfaces and tools help you easily interact with Proficy Historian, saving time and reducing costs.

Tight integration with HMI/SCADA

With tight integration with HMI/SCADA’s iFIX and CIMPLICITY, enjoy simple one-click publishing of data. Proficy Historian logs and stores data from the HMI/SCADA systems and allows viewing back in iFIX and CIMPLICITY.

Features of Proficy Historian

Superior compression algorithms

With just 1% compression enabled, Historian is approximately 2x more efficient than a leading competitor and 30x more efficient than relational databases.

Data aggregation across your enterprise from time series to A&E

Collect, normalize, and store data from across your organization—from edge applications with Proficy Historian for Linux or our Windows—based collectors to plant, enterprise, and cloud.  Proficy Historian also stores Alarms & Events data from any OPC A&E server.

Quick installation for immediate time-to-value

Proficy Historian installs in minutes, allowing you to view your machine and process data immediately. Your Proficy Historian server has a simple yet powerful mirroring capability and provides enterprise-level computing by scaling to hundreds of users and millions of data points.

Keep industrial data secure

Data security remains our highest priority. Proficy Historian uses OAuth2 web tokens to authorize and authenticate your Windows Domain users and groups against your most important process data.

Leverage on-premise or in the cloud

Connect to your industrial data with an existing collector, or build your own using our SDK. Send your data to a customer-premise/edge Proficy Historian or to our Predix Cloud to support Predix applications.

Get big data ready

Proficy Historian is the data management foundation for the Industrial Internet. Additionally, Proficy Historian HD provides big data capabilities on a Hadoop platform.

Proficy Historian Edge: Enable machine-level storage

Edge computing device support

Proficy Historian Edge revolutionizes data collection and storage by residing at the edge device and delivering distributed data collection to support IIoT. Instead of higher level systems polling for device data, Historian Edge nodes push machine data to the plant level, providing a new, more efficient mechanism that includes store and forward. With its small, cost-effective footprint, the software can sit on many physical IIoT devices and controllers that feed machine data to historians at the plant or enterprise level, which in turn send data to the cloud for analysis and process optimization.
