An Industry Brief
What is a Histogram?
When Should a Histogram Be Used?
You should use a histogram when data is numerical and want to see the shape of data distribution. Histograms are great tools for analyzing whether a process can meet a customer’s requirements, analyzing output from a supplier’s processes, seeing whether a process change has occurred from one time period or to another, or determining whether outputs or more processes are different.
The Data Complexity Challenge With IT & OT Systems
The challenge? As IT and OT systems become more complex, more data is generated which means it takes more time to manually compile, display, and derive actionable information from your data.
The solution? Sightline EDM™ for IIoT & Utilities is used for industrial and manufacturing data collection & intelligence that is unified in one easy-to-use IIoT 4.0 platform.
MQTT (Message Queueing Telemetry Transport) is a simple, lightweight message publishing and subscribing network protocol. It is the standard protocol for Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 messaging.
It is lightweight, low bandwidth, and functions well in high latency and unreliable environments, making it ideal in production environments. Devices send data (publish) to an MQTT Broker with a topic and a data payload, and devices can subscribe to that topic and subtopics and receive updates containing that data from the broker when the data changes. Topics can be defined to use several levels of depth and devices can subscribe to topics using wildcards allowing for dynamic changes when required. Continue Reading MQTT Protocol
Zero-Trust is a security concept and cybersecurity framework allowing an organization to aggressively defend itself, its data, and user permissions using an advanced system of automated security protocols. Zero-Trust is centered on the belief that organizations should not automatically trust anything inside or outside their perimeters and instead must verify anything and everything trying to connect to their systems before granting access.

The EDM Correlation data analysis tool is designed to help users perform root cause analysis across multiple devices or systems. It compares the activity of one system over a given period with the activity of multiple other systems and identifies the most highly related data points. This allows EDM to create an intuitive visualization of related events across an entire network of mixed technology enabling root cause analysis to be performed more efficiently than ever before.

Forecasting uses historical data as inputs to make informed estimates that are predictive in determining the direction of future trends. Choosing appropriate forecasting techniques depends on the type of data being used and behavior of the data. For example, forecasting techniques used for “financial data” may not be appropriate for time series data like “computer server data” or “data center network activity data” (though underlying forecasting principles stay the same).
