What is a Data Historian?

A data historian allows users to collect a vast amount of real-time and business data to transform operations with insight into trends, patterns and equipment performance. Modern process historians provide distributed, scalable historical databases that can integrate with enterprise IT big data systems. Optional cloud integration allows users to take advantage of large data storage volume options without sacrificing expected retrieval speed or resiliency.

How Data Historians Work

Using a data historian provides organizations with the ability to benefit and learn from their accumulated information. Modern data historians need to be able to capture a vast amount of data at high speeds and also recall that same data with the same quickness for comparisons to real-time or more recent data, using integrated trending and reporting tools. Integrating systems with a rapid, robust data historian can be also benefit other connected applications including those involving quality analysis/SPC.
