has launched , a software-as-a-service cloud hosting solution for enterprise-wide visualization and analysis that company says will help businesses improve their asset availability and increase plant uptime.

According to Honeywell, Uniformance Cloud Historian fuses the real-time process data analysis of a traditional enterprise historian with a data lake, enabling the integration of production, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and other business data coupled with analytics tools to provide business intelligence. This allows enterprise data to be analyzed instantly on a scale not previously possible using tools and functions already in use at sites and plants.

“Uniformance Cloud Historian brings the full power of cloud and big data to Honeywell’s traditional process historian for the first time, connecting even the most complex multi-site organizations effortlessly,” said Vimal Kapur, president of Honeywell Process Solutions. “The solution makes it possible to leverage insights found at one plant across all plants, allowing smarter, more strategic decisions to be made and action to be taken.”

Honeywell’s new offering collects, stores and enables replay of historical and continuous plant and production site process data and makes it visible in the cloud in near real time. The historian combines a time series data store, which empowers plant and enterprise staff to execute and make decisions, with a big data lake, which enables data scientists to uncover previously unknown correlations between process data and other business data in the enterprise.

Honeywell said that projects that previously took weeks or months can now be achieved in hours. These efficiencies, combined with the ability to use a customer’s existing tools and functions, can significantly reduce deployment and engineering time. Additionally, the scale and performance delivered through native cloud technology can reduce enterprise information technology costs by up to 25 percent. Because Uniformance Cloud Historian is built on the Honeywell Sentience Internet of Things Platform, future value may be delivered to customers in the form of additional applications and services.

“ARC believes that a secure cloud provides an ideal environment for applications such as historians,” said Janice Abel, principal analyst, ARC Advisory Group. “With the Uniformance Cloud Historian, Honeywell is not just hosting historians on-site, but is enabling users with new edge, cloud and data lake technologies for process, asset and business data. The historian should make it quicker and easier for users in industrial plants to access, analyze, and leverage data to improve both plant and enterprise performance. It should also help reduce the considerable costs typically associated with hosting resource-intensive applications with cloud and data lake technologies.”
