Why do Process Engineers still rely heavily on Excel for analysing the data that has been generated for decades? Why haven't we copied the success of retail, satnav or medical Big Data solutions in the process industry? The first big reason is that the location of our data, the historian database, is not built for these types of questions and requires specific technologies that are usually expensive and require a heavy installation process before they can be used. Secondly, these technologies are built for data scientists,not for the engineer or operator. This creates a knowledge gap and discourages flexibility. TrendMiner is a Belgian software startup with many years of research experience in Process Industry analytics. This solution is to be installed and ready to use within one working day without the need of new datacenter infrastrcuture. In this presentation you'll gain insight into the technology and the cases it has already solved to date.
