Report back from the OSIsoft UC London 2017

OSIsoft User Conference London 2017

As a long-time partner of OSIsoft, TrendMiner recently attended the 2017 OSIsoft User Conference in London. This year’s event showcased the opportunities that OSIsoft PI offers our rapidly transforming industries, with a big emphasis on the role of analytics.

The conference in London attracted record audiences: more than 1400 people from almost 400 companies came together for an intensive agenda of keynote addresses, customer presentations and industry track sessions.

Two perspectives on self-service analytics

Two TrendMiner customers shared presentations on the critical role of analytics during transformation. These sessions offered the audience two different perspectives on the value of analytics: views from an engineer and a digital officer.

“Process data tells stories…”

Tim Timmermans, Operational Expert for Covestro, showed a number of practical use cases where self-service analytics helped Covestro find fast insights into their process data.

“Process data tells stories,” said Tim Timmermans. “All you need to do is capture them.” He went on to show how TrendMiner improves production control, reduces emissions and energy consumption and facilitates knowledge capture at Covestro.

“The digitalization wave is rolling…”

Hermann Schuster, Chief Digital Officer, showed how Arlanxeo leverages digitalization at the operational level, and shared how a self-service analytics solution fits his company’s global information strategy. Together with Jeroen De Wolf, Hermann also presented one of the use cases that proved the value of the solution.

“The digitalization wave is rolling,” said Hermann Schuster in his address. “You cannot wait until you have a final perfect solution before you start using big data tools. It’s better to do it in parallel: start using analytics while you continue to gather data.”
