However, they often lack the analytics and expertise needed to transform the information into actionable data — data that can effectively improve safety, reliability and efficiency of assets, people and processes. Understanding the importance, Emerson built Plantweb Insight to “turn the raw sensor-based data to actual information for users,” said Brian Joe, global wireless product engineer at Emerson. What is Plantweb Insight? Emerson’s Plantweb Insight is a suite of applications that helps users to instantly make sense of plant data to drive overall enterprise profitability. It’s a scalable, easy- to-install web-based platform that automatically and strategically interprets plant data.
