Welcome, Silicon to the Element Family!

With this release, we introduce a brand new, data-structuring function called Transpose Columns in Element AssetHub’s library of data pipeline transformations.

Equipment data consists of continually-changing time series data as well as static, or slow-changing, data that site engineers often collect and store in a variety of documents and formats. While building a pipeline, you may have several columns of static and non-static tabular data that are not directly compatible with the format required in AssetHub. With the Silicon release, AssetHub now offers Transpose Columns as a powerful data-shaping function for re-ordering this data into an acceptable row-based format, making it easy for AssetHub to consume and use.

Additional new features in this release enhance the user experience when you log in to AssetHub or when you build the Asset data model.

Here are the new features and updates:

  • Transpose Columns transformation for reshaping data
  • Pipeline enhancements
  • Bulk management of templates
  • User control of jobs
  • Security updates

Welcome Aluminum! Introducing Asset Explorer in Our Latest Release

Today we’re announcing the Aluminum release of Element AssetHub. We’re constantly updating our product to reflect the latest learnings working with our customers. Some of you may know that we’ve been tracking each release using a name from the periodic table of elements. With each release as a new atomic number, we give birth to a new Element (Pop Quiz: What is the atomic number of Aluminum? Find out here.).

The Aluminum release adds new features to Asset Explorer. Asset Explorer offers operational teams an easy way to build and explore hierarchies of asset data and is a core function of Element AssetHub. Hierarchies allow different data consumers to view information about the relationships between data in a way that makes sense to them. For example, what’s good for the reliability engineer who wants a hierarchy of target equipment, won’t work for the process engineer who needs to see the data across multiple units within an overall process. If you’d like more detail on what Element AssetHub can do within your organization, read our primer.

Anyhow, back to the new features:

  • Revamped UI
  • Improved scalability
  • Private hierarchies

Calculations. Design is everything.

(For those readers that are unfamiliar with Element AssetHub and need an overview, you can read our co-founders primer).

We're excited to introduce Enterprise Calculations. Calculations reside within our Asset Templates, allowing customers to define relationships between sets of attributes, and can be further used in the Element AssetHub.

With this initial release, our teams have taken great care to create an easy to use experience. We thought it might be interesting for you if we were to lift the hood on our design process, so you can get a sense of how hard we work to come up with features that help to make your job easier.
