TrendMiner 2020.R2 enhances industrial analytics
Software AG’s TrendMiner has announced the release of TrendMiner 2020.R2. This latest release sets new standards in usability of self-service industrial analytics for operational experts. 2020.R2 makes it easier than ever to make data-driven decisions for production process performance optimisation.
TrendMiner has overhauled its user interface to help operational experts solve production issues easier and faster with big time-series data analysis. Previously only available in English, this release will now also support German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Mandarin and Simplified Chinese languages.
Nick Van Damme, Product Manager at TrendMiner commented: “Over the years, as a result of working closely with our customers, we’ve gradually extended the TrendMiner capabilities to other search dimensions, adding new functionalities such as the tag builder, influence factors and recommendation engine, in line with our users’ analytics expectations. However, growing a product is not only about adding new capabilities, it’s also about improving the product experience for our users.”
TrendMiner enables production experts in process manufacturing industries to analyse, monitor and predict operational performance using sensor-generated time-series data. These operational experts, and all the use cases they have worked on over the years, have been very influential in bringing new TrendMiner capabilities to market quickly.
Van Damme continued: “Ease-of-use for all users is crucial for the successful democratisation of analytics. Over the years we have received many usability improvement ideas and feature requests from our users. The new TrendHub interface is the result of working with our users, our customer success engineers and our customers to make the TrendMiner-experience faster and easier for everyone. The new trend analysis client will help process and asset experts analyse their production processes and improve operational performance faster than ever, making their company more agile to address fast changing market demands.
Many TrendMiner customers operate in multiple countries, with users who prefer to use applications in their local language. Besides English, TrendMiner 2020.R2 makes the full application available in: German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Mandarin and Simplified Chinese. The language the user sees is determined by the language setting of their web browser.
Rob Azevedo, Product Manager at TrendMiner, added: “A common saying in product development is: ‘If your customers love your app and what it does, they'll love it twice as much in their own language’. We believe that this also applies for our self-service industrial analytics application that is intended to accelerate the democratisation of analytics within the process manufacturing industries.”
