Avoid Drowning in Data with Data Analytics Software

— Control Design

"Data analytics software incorporates machine learning technologies to accelerate the efforts of the user, but takes things one critical step further. The main difference is that data analytics software is always used in a directed fashion by the engineer or expert seeking specific answers or insights to a question, instead of just calculating relationships without context or focus."

Seeq is one of just ten companies selected as an Energy Innovation Pioneer, which recognizes companies and entrepreneurs developing technologies and business plans that are transforming the energy future. Seeq is the first of a new generation of applications which address the gap between the volume of data collected in the generation, processing, and distribution of energy, and the challenges of extracting insight and benefit from that data. This challenge, where organizations are “drowning in data but starving for information,” is a key business issue and it's only getting worse with the proliferation of new sensors and data associated with the Internet of Things. The benefits to energy industry customers using Seeq include faster time to insight on quality, yield, margins, and safety.

Seeq Corporation President Steve Sliwa will be joining other Energy Innovation Pioneers to discuss the impact of new technologies on the future of energy. He will speak at a Strategic Dialogue on February 23, 7:30 – 8:45 a.m. CST: Accelerating Game Changing Oil and Gas Technologies to Manage an Industry in Transition.

“We selected Seeq from a list of more than 350 early-stage technology companies covering the entire spectrum of the energy production value chain because of their innovative approach to enable frontline engineers to perform advanced analytics and extract actionable insights on energy industry data in a timely manner,” said Carolyn Seto, director at IHS Energy and co-chair of the Energy Innovation Pioneers program. “The demand for solutions that unlock user productivity in discovering insights within the vast amounts of data generated in the energy industry is very high, and growing every year.”

“Seeq redefines user productivity in the pursuit of insights and value from the vast quantities of data generated in the energy industry,” said Dr. Sliwa. “We are honored to be recognized as a 2016 Pioneer and look forward to discussing how Seeq can assist companies in the industry with key issues such as reliability, energy optimization, and safety.”

IHS energy experts select promising energy technology companies for the CERAWeek Energy Innovation Pioneers based on creativity, feasibility of plan, scalability of technology and leadership team. The Energy Innovation Pioneers are being recognized at this week's CERAWeek conference, that draws more than 2,800 executives and other thought leaders from the global energy industry to discuss policy, markets and technologies, as well as environmental and climate concerns.

Seeq Included in ARC EMI Market Study

— ARC Advisory Group

ARC today published a Market Research Study on Enterprise Manufacturing Operational Intelligence (EMI). EMI is the framework of integrated software and services that bring together a company’s manufacturing and operations data. This requires integrating disparate sources in a cohesive, intelligent, and contextual fashion for reporting, analysis, and visualization. Applications included in EMI include data integration and aggregation, data contextualization and management, analytics and analysis, and visualization.

A subset of the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) market, EMI, is the fastest-growing subcategory within this space and exceeded $1.1B in revenue for 2014. Its rapid growth is being driven by customers looking to make faster decisions, avoid abnormal behavior, improve time-to–value, and optimize operations. EMI solutions can accomplish all of these objectives, while helping to improve visibility and reduce costs.

Over 30 vendors, including Seeq, are referenced in the EMI market study which is available from ARC. This is Seeq’s first inclusion in the ARC EMI Market Research Study. Key Seeq features which align with the goals and objectives of EMI offerings include data integration, contextualization, analytics, and collaboration among peers. Seeq also aligns with the report’s focus on deployment flexibility as it enables both on-premise and cloud-based scenarios as more customers consider hosted alternatives for their data analytics.

Founded in 1986, ARC Advisory Group is the leading technology research and advisory firm for industry and infrastructure. ARC coverage of technology and trends extends from business systems to product and asset lifecycle management, supply chain management, operations management, energy optimization, industrial internet of things (IoT) and automation systems.

Gartner Cites Seeq in IT/OT Data Integration Report

— Gartner

Seeq is referenced by Gartner in “Data Integration Architectures for Synergies Between IT Systems and Operational Technologies,” published in June, 2015, by Gartner analysts Ted Friedman and Kristian Steenstrup.

According to the report, “Gartner expects that new startups in the marketplace will take a fresh approach to managing time-series process data.”

Integration and insight on combined IT/OT data sets is required to enable organizations to achieve operational efficiencies and proactively monitor and react to real-time conditions. This is an issue that will grow in importance with the expanding use of sensor technologies, mobile capabilities, and the influence of cloud economics for data storage. These developments, together with advanced analytics capabilities, are creating new digital business opportunities that require data integration strategies for IT/OT data sources in order to unlock their potential for improved outcomes.
