Savigent Historian™

Savigent Historian™ is a context-aware process data historian, a high-performance database for historical manufacturing information, and a highly scalable and distributable data collection infrastructure based on the Savigent Platform™.

Savigent Historian™ has been optimized to capture and store both time series process data as well as event-based context data, for example, temperatures and pressures (equipment time series process data) and equipment state (event-based context data). Combining event-based context data with process data yields contextualized information about your manufacturing equipment and processes.

Savigent Historian™ can store terabytes of information online without degrading performance, translating to faster query times.
