New: TrendMiner ContextHub, introduced at the OSIsoft EMEA User Conference 2018, Barcelona

TrendMiner has expanded its advanced self-service analytics capabilities with ContextHub, a brand new environment that provides customers even further capability to improve operational excellence. ContextHub was introduced and demonstrated at OSIsoft’s PI World in Barcelona.

The completely new set of capabilities, collectively called ContextHub, serving as an extension to TrendMiner’s TrendHub, is built around the structure of OSIsoft PI Event Frames and Asset Framework, greatly broadening the use and usefulness of contextual information for root cause analysis and operational performance monitoring.

ContextHub is a repository, search engine and collaboration platform for context items that can be neatly aligned to assets, processes and events. This platform can be configured to organisational requirements, so that the context itself becomes a powerful new dataset that can be both visualized and analyzed; it also serves as a starting point for time-series analytics. Context items can be automatically captured, manually entered or easily imported from other business solutions, such as; OSIsoft PI Event Frames (PI EF), Batch systems (such as OSIsoft PI Batch), Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) and OEE systems, thus maximizing the flexibility of contextual information.

“We are excited that our long-time partner TrendMiner chooses PI World EMEA to launch their new capabilities at our user events. Earlier this year TrendMiner announced the integration with OSISoft Cloud Services as one of the first partners. Now here in Barcelona TrendMiner introduces ContextHub with deep integrations into OSisoft Event Frames and Asset Framework. It’s these ecosystem synergies that will help our customers achieve their goals to improve operational excellence through digitalization and advanced analytics much faster.”
