Case Studies

Element is helping Industrial Enterprises across the globe achieve up to 300% faster time to insight, a 25% gain in employee productivity, and a 100% increase in data usability for decision making.

Previously our safety performance data was kept in one place—an engineer’s computer. With Element, everyone has instant visibility to our safety system performance in a holistic view that will allow for very fast response to issues as they arise.

Asking a very simple question about your asset requires more than one data source, and typically those data sources are not connected to each other, or what should be a five minute question now takes me hours to answer. Having Element is absolutely critical for deploying data science, predictive and prescriptive analytics and AI driven automation.
