To benefi t from AI/ML technology, break down the silos that isolate unused but valuable data.
TODAY THE AVERAGE industrial plant
uses less than 27% of the data it generates,
according to industry experts at the ARC
Advisory Group, Boston (arcweb.com).
Typically, the remaining 73% of data-
much of it produced by plant processcontrol
systems as high-frequency operational
control (OT) data-is put in a historian
and seldom used.
Th ere are large volumes of other valuable
functional data residing in a company's general
business or IT systems, and still more in

the engineering systems (ET), covering
specifi c design information for various
assets. In addition to being rarely used, all
of this data is normally scattered about in
separate silos and networks that support
little or no cross referencing.
UNLOCK OPPORTUNITY
Th at's where the golden opportunity lies,
which we can now unlock with new soſt -
ware platforms that simplify better convergence
and analysis of OT/IT/ET data. Th e
benefi ts can be impressive, such as higher
production rates from existing assets, less
downtime because of predictive-maintenance
practices, safer operation, reduced
energy and other raw material inputs, and
lower environmental impact.
By better convergence of OT/IT/ET
data, we mean bringing together previously
separate elements, which have now been
streamlined and integrated so that they
proceed seamlessly. To achieve this, we
accumulate all OT, IT, and ET data in a data
