Automated solution turns big analog data complexities into insights

NI has announced the release of the Data Management Software Suite. This enterprise software solution offers a complete workflow to standardize measurement data across teams, mine that data for useful information, transform the data through automated analysis and deliver reports with valuable insight.

“The amount of data being acquired to test devices, monitor physical assets and analyze product designs continues to skyrocket,” said Dave Wilson, vice president of platform software at NI. “The challenge with the exponential growth in the amount of data being acquired is the establishment of a repeatable and automated process to extract valuable insights. Often inconsistencies and errors in the data produce erroneous results, which requires engineers to manually inspect and verify data before sending it to a manual or automated analysis process.”

The Data Management Software Suite aims to simplify this workflow by introducing new server-based software features and a new product, the Analysis Server. This new product helps engineers and scientists automate the search, standardization, analysis and reporting of large amounts of measurement data. The full suite is flexible enough to integrate with customers’ existing data formats and IT infrastructures, so any team with a Windows machine and a network can add powerful data management capabilities. The NI platform provides the ability to perform nanosecond analytics at the edge, read/write data for analysis and standardize metadata for automated analysis.

“Using the Data Management Software Suite, we’ve helped a major automotive manufacturer reduce the time it spends analyzing the data generated by one of its component tests from 10 hours to 7 minutes. This essentially reduces its testing cycle by one whole day,” said Barry Hutt, CEO of Viviota, an NI Alliance Partner specializing in data management.

With the release of the Analysis Server, NI’s server-based data management solution built on DIAdem and the DataFinder Server, the suite can be expanded to automated data processing. Now engineers can gain initial meaningful insights without any manual interaction while preserving the original measurement data for searching and further investigation. The Data Management Software Suite combines these highly interoperable software products into one enterprise solution that can be used to increase test data standardization and help reduce time to market by turning data into insights faster.

Supported by a vibrant ecosystem of partners, add-on IP and applications engineers, the Data Management Software Suite is part of NI’s software and hardware platform that helps dramatically lower the cost of test, reduce time to market and future-proof test systems for tomorrow’s challenging requirements.

What to consider when incorporating an intelligent touch screen display into your product
Gone are the days of rotary switches, push buttons and seven segment displays. Incorporating touch screen displays into embedded designs is the trend, accelerated of course by consumer adoption of the smartphone.
