Progress with AWS offers 'first' IIoT self-service option for anomaly detection and prediction

By

Using cognitive machine learning, Progress boasts its DataRPM not only delivers the industry's "first Industrial IoT self-service option", but also achieves "faster time-to-insight, improved uptime, quality, yield and maintenance of industrial assets".

Progress. It's not just a thing or a concept, but a company which bills itself as "the leading provider of application development and deployment technologies".

The company has just announced the availability of its new "Progress DataRPM self-service anomaly detection and prediction option for the Industrial Internet of Things market".

Provided within a new R&D-specific license, we're told this is a "first-of-its-kind offering" that will "empower R&D and innovation groups with better decision-making capabilities for IIoT proof-of-concept and pilot execution".

Unlike various companies out there like Epicor or Informatica making big announcements to partner with Microsoft's Azure cloud service, Progress is hosting its service on Amazon Web Services.

AWS says it will "also offer free trials of Progress DataRPM cloud instances for qualified manufacturers with connected sensors and the ensuing time series data.

"The trial will allow companies to load their data securely on AWS, detect equipment anomalies, predict failures before they occur, and validate against failures — both known and unknown — thereby confirming pro-active steps that should be taken in advance to avoid unplanned downtime and unscheduled maintenance".

Progress says that "the flood of data coming from sensors on industrial equipment gives asset-intensive organisations a tremendous opportunity to prevent failures and optimise output".

"However, industrial organisations globally are struggling to make sense of their data and to detect anomalies and prevent failures that otherwise go undetected until costly failures occur.

"With anomaly detection and prediction capabilities within the Progress DataRPM application, asset-intensive companies can unlock the power of the IIoT to capture and analyse their own industrial sensor data privately and securely to dramatically reduce downtime and increase overall equipment effectiveness."

The company says its "self-service option in the R&D licence empowers R&D and innovation groups of industrial companies to leverage the fully automated machine learning anomaly detection and prediction capabilities within the DataRPM application, transforming their raw sensor data into intelligent actions for multi-sensor time series data analysis".

"R&D teams can start accurately detecting and predicting anomalies across their industrial data to minimise equipment downtime while maximise overall output. They can derive higher true positives and lower false positives with accurate insights to take timely actions to reduce unplanned downtime, unscheduled maintenance and to better control assets".

Through Progress DataRPM anomaly detection and prediction option, Progress says that "industrial decision makers, data scientists, heads of Innovation, R&D and machine learning and big data decision makers now have access to":

  • Self-service: "End-to-end automation of the steps from data ingestion and analysis to insights visualisation. Users can easily upload sensor data, map the attributes and click “run”. The entire cognitive flow works in a fully automated fashion to show near-immediate results."
  • Smart insights: "The results are shown in ”stories,” in a human-readable format that highlights patterns and anti-patterns in the sensor data."
  • Exploratory analysis: "Using drill-down and filters, users can gain a better understanding of the behaviour of assets and most important sensors for predicting the most likely failures states."
  • Enterprise-grade data science process flow framework: "For those with successful POCs and pilots, the framework enables a seamless transition from R&D to full production environments with no code rewrites."

Dmitri Tcherevik, chief technology officer at Progress, said: "With billions of interconnected devices pumping out untold volumes of data, there is a huge demand for ways to gather valuable insights from the data.

"But with limited budgets and lengthy deployment cycles for many machine learning applications, the true value of data is often left untapped or underutilised.

“That is why Progress now offers an R&D self-service option for those organisations looking to start on their IIoT journey more quickly and easily than previously possible.

"R&D teams can use our self-service cognitive cloud-based application to immediately start detecting and predicting anomalies across their industrial data for fast time-to-insights and more accurate ROA calculations."

Progress tells us its Progress DataRPM application "uses cognitive techniques and advanced machine learning and meta learning-based algorithms to identify and predict anomalies, often before they occur in the production environment.

"Meta-learning, a subset of machine learning, is a set of algorithms that teach computers how to self-learn in difficult Industrial IoT big data environments.

"DataRPM anomaly detection and prediction option provides fast, repeatable, scalable and highly interpretable results by analysing highly complex sensor data in minutes, reducing equipment failures and increasing output quality and yield."

PROMOTE YOUR WEBINAR ON ITWIRE

It's all about Webinars.

Marketing budgets are now focused on Webinars combined with Lead Generation.

If you wish to promote a Webinar we recommend at least a 3 to 4 week campaign prior to your event.

The iTWire campaign will include extensive adverts on our News Site itwire.com and prominent Newsletter promotion https://itwire.com/itwire-update.html and Promotional News & Editorial. Plus a video interview of the key speaker on iTWire TV https://www.youtube.com/c/iTWireTV/videos which will be used in Promotional Posts on the iTWire Home Page.

Now we are coming out of Lockdown iTWire will be focussed to assisting with your webinatrs and campaigns and assassistance via part payments and extended terms, a Webinar Business Booster Pack and other supportive programs. We can also create your adverts and written content plus coordinate your video interview.

We look forward to discussing your campaign goals with you. Please click the button below.

INTRODUCING ITWIRE TV

iTWire TV offers a unique value to the Tech Sector by providing a range of video interviews, news, views and reviews, and also provides the opportunity for vendors to promote your company and your marketing messages.

We work with you to develop the message and conduct the interview or product review in a safe and collaborative way. Unlike other Tech YouTube channels, we create a story around your message and post that on the homepage of ITWire, linking to your message.

In addition, your interview post message can be displayed in up to 7 different post displays on our the iTWire.com site to drive traffic and readers to your video content and downloads. This can be a significant Lead Generation opportunity for your business.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.

See the latest in Tech News, Views, Interviews, Reviews, Product Promos and Events. Plus funny videos from our readers and customers.
