IPCOS has developed a reference architecture where data model and data services are central.
Data Modeling and Data Integration overcomes multiple challenges
- There is no single version of the truth – data is stored in multiple versions in multiple databases or Excel
- Engineers need to know the tag IDs of the sensors to retrieve the correct data from the database
- Engineers lose lots of time manually copying data from one application to another to perform analysis or create reports
- Adding new equipment to the system is time consuming and requires lots of copy pasting
