Unlock the power of your Industrial Big Data

Have I ever seen this start-up sequence in the past 10 years…over my entire fleet of assets? If so, what happened?

How do I optimize the performance of my fleet of 50 similar assets by comparing their performances…over the past 12 months…or 5 years?

These are the kinds of questions you now can answer…with Proficy Historian HD—our industrial Big Data historian solution. It’s the first time-series data historian built on Hadoop, and goes beyond the abilities of commonly used software tools to capture, curate, manage, and process much more data—at extremely high speeds.

With Proficy Historian HD, you can compare years of historical data to real-time data across the enterprise. Thus, you can better understand how equipment and processes are running vs. how they should be running. And this leads to optimized performance.

Benefits of Historian HD

  • Uncover intelligence that would otherwise be locked away in the data
  • Leverage advanced predictive-analytic and process-optimization tools
  • Help optimize asset health and maximize product quality and yield
  • Lower costs, using the cloud

How big IS big?

The figures below—from just one of many machines that produce a personal care product—underscore the sheer volume of data created by industrial companies.  


152,000 samples per second

9 million samples per minute

545 million samples per hour

4 billion samples per shift

13 billion samples per day

4 trillion samples per year

40 trillion samples over ten years


With commonly used software tools, most companies can analyze only a few hours or days of this data. But with Proficy Historian HD, they can track years of this data and compare data across similar machines, detecting patterns and trends never before seen.
