Product News: HighByte Intelligence Hub for the industrial market

Jan. 22, 2020
Industrial DataOps software targets the data-infrastructure gap.

HighByte announced that HighByte Intelligence Hub Version 1.0 is now available. HighByte Intelligence Hub is the first DataOps solution purpose-built for industrial environments, according to its maker. DataOps is a new approach to data integration and security that aims to improve data quality, reduce time spent preparing data for analysis, and encourage cross-functional collaboration within data-driven organizations.

HighByte Intelligence Hub enables operations to securely connect, model and flow industrial data to the users and systems that require this information throughout the extended enterprise. The platform-agnostic software solution runs on-premises at the edge, connects devices and applications via OPC UA and MQTT, is built for scale, and offers a codeless user interface.
"As the number of applications that need to turn raw data into usable information increases, the customer is faced with having to recreate models in every application or develop their own solutions that integrate with the various APIs. Either choice slows down the initial deployment of Industrial 4.0 initiatives, inhibits the ability to scale, and places a huge maintainability problem on the customer,” said HighByte CEO Tony Paine. “With HighByte Intelligence Hub, customers can standardize and maintain their data models in a single location, securely streamline information flows, and accelerate time-to-value for their Industry 4.0 investments."

“Data conditioning is critical for the execution of Industry 4.0 at scale,” added Matthew Littlefield, LNS Research president and principal analyst. “As the number of consumers of industrial data continues to increase, we see data modeling moving into its own abstraction layer in the technology stack. Solutions like HighByte Intelligence Hub are well positioned to capture data in motion and address the data interoperability issues faced by manufacturers.”
