Element Analytics named IDC Innovator for Analytics Applications for Manufacturers

San Francisco, CA, August 1, 2017 – Element Analytics, Inc., an industrial software company focused on helping industrial companies navigate their digital transformation, today announced it was named an “IDC Innovator” in the “IDC Innovators: Analytic Applications for Manufacturing, July 2017” report (Doc #US42382717). The technologies included are a combination of Big Data analytics, IoT or edge analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and cloud computing.

“Element Analytics was selected as one of five IDC Innovators providing analytics applications for manufacturers.  They were selected for their ability to analyze and integrate industrial time series data with other data sources to develop digital twins of industrial assets,” said Kimberly Knickle, Vice President IDC Manufacturing Insights.

Analytics is a key component for manufacturers to increase profitability and reduce risk in their operations.  However, operators are having a hard time getting their data connected to conventional analytical products, leaving them to perform analytics only on the supply-chain or retail side of the business. Element’s solution is to put the power of digital transformation into the hands of engineers and operators in the business.  Their ability to easily organize industrial data into digital twins--dynamic digital representations of physical equipment and assets--has allowed manufacturers to identify causes to frequently occurring issues, improve throughput, and reduce reliability costs.

“We are honored and humbled to be recognized as an IDC Innovator for analytic applications for manufacturers,” said Andy Bane, Chief Executive Officer at Element Analytics.   “Every industrial company desires to improve asset utilization, lower O&M costs and reduce health, safety and environmental incidents.  Our focus at Element is to help customers achieve these objectives through data driven, machine learning, observation-based empirical analysis, all of which becomes possible through the Digital Twin.”
