Request a consultation to discover how Plantweb Optics?can help you fully leverage your operations data.
To drive real business improvement, you need to seamlessly leverage valuable operations data from across the enterprise but accessing and aggregating this type of data can be difficult. Operations data is often stored in a wide range of formats and siloed across systems, functions and facilities. And moving millions of data streams across legacy OT networks without disruption to plant systems has presented an even greater challenge, until now...
Plantweb Optics can address the technical challenges associated with communicating with legacy OT systems and protocols and combine data from multiple sources into a single TCP data stream. Access to operations data is enabled by a growing library of pre-built connectors. In addition to available connectors, standards such as OPC and Web API can be used to integrate with other applications.
Plantweb Optics centralizes and automatically organizes multiple forms of data in context to the asset and its place in the overall enterprise. Because this solution is powered by NoSQL storage, all types of operations data can be stored, including measurements, states, aggregates, alarms, videos, pictures and events. Consistent organization ensures data can be easily used without compatibility issues. And proper contextualization means you can have confidence in the data’s validity and relevance.
Plantweb Optics is a cloud or on-premise, built-for-purpose platform that enables many connections to be monitored through a single user interface and facilitates more effective integration with external clients and development environments. Operations data from across the enterprise is stored in a centralized repository, reducing the number of systems that must be managed and protected as well as the number of potential threat vectors. And because this data is collected in the same place it is analyzed, data transfer is reduced – increasing security, reliability and deduplication of data.
With Plantweb Optics, the communication interface to each OT system is carefully monitored and managed so that available compute and network resources are never overwhelmed by requests for data. Throttling and hedging capabilities within the software enable enhanced visibility and control of the data aggregation process, optimizing the load on these OT systems and preventing disruption to operations. And because Emerson recognizes the potential impact of cyber attacks, it strictly adheres to a secure-by-design approach guided by the highest industry-recommended standards for cyber protection and data sovereignty.
Looking to improve the throughput and reliability of its production systems, Nutrien?is leveraging the power of AWS and Emerson’s Plantweb Optics to liberate its operations data and make it accessible across the enterprise.

Fully leverage meaningful operations data, at scale, no matter where it resides. Key data management features include:
Easily connect to Emerson sources as well as third-party sources through agnostic interfaces to a variety of OT platforms.
Native object data models automatically ensure proper context is brought to operations data so that it is meaningful and ready to use.
A single, central location for managing connections results in improved maintainability and security and also facilitates more effective integration with external clients and development environments.
A flexible, modular architecture facilitates integration into existing systems, on premise or in the cloud, without significant redesign and enables routine maintenance and recovery functions to be executed without disrupting operations.
Role-based user access is granted through configurable profiles, and access to external partners is enabled by defining virtual namespaces with only necessary information.
Emerson’s data management technologies are developed in accordance with the highest industry-recommended standards for cyber protection and data sovereignty.
