Executive Summary

This report introduces the concept of Industrial DataOps (Data Operations) platforms, derived from DevOps: the practice of aligning business operational goals with software development. Industrial DataOps applies such an approach to orchestrating people, assets, processes and technology to acquire and clean a wide variety of data streams, place these in context and deliver as a self-explaining digestible package to decision-makers to help optimize industrial operations. The report outlines key advantages to deploying these data management software platforms in asset-heavy industries – such as the enablement of advanced data-focused analytics such as artificial intelligence and machine learning – alongside crucial factors to consider during vendor selection and software implementation.
