Presentation from the Sigmafine Summit in Milan, October 10, 2019.
Effective Digital Transformation feeds on data. To achieve sustainable gains, it is imperative to implement a system of checks and balances that can run as autonomously as possible and maximizes the value of the information contained in the raw data. The process of turning data in to digital assets involves many steps ranging from data collection, validation, reconciliation, conditioning, etc. Collectively, these steps are known as data engineering. The goal is to reliably deliver usable data to operators, analysts, data scientists, business processes and other applications. The real-time nature of operations in the process and manufacturing industries makes this process repetitive and continuously subject to the variability of the raw input data, performance of the measurement systems, and actual plant operations. During the Summit, we will discuss how the mandate of Sigmafine has evolved over the years to become one of the leading data engineering platforms in the process industries.
