We’ve just released a new OLE for Process Control (OPC) server that enables any OPC clients to get data from AggreGate’s unified data model, as well as any underlying devices and data sources. Any OPC compliant application such as a process historian, an ERP/MES system or a reporting tool, can read or write to all data points that are available within AggreGate Server.
Do you know that besides monitoring any network devices and services AggreGate can manage them in a variety of ways?

Industrial Internet of Things is a new milestone in contemporary industrialization which redistributes manufacturing companies’ impact on the market.
Industrial Internet of Things is mainly interesting to enterprises seeking for leadership by prices dumping and cost optimization. It’s becoming possible now due to production automation and raw materials economy through integration with intelligent systems.
Victor Polyakov, CEO of Tibbo Systems, the main Russian software company developing enterprise-grade monitoring systems, told the organizers of the professional “Internet of Things” conference taking place in Moscow, October 29th, more about Internet of Things prospects. Continue reading Victor Polyakov: Future trends for the Industrial Internet of Things
It’s often necessary to perform a similar operation with thousands of your devices, regardless of whether they are online and functioning properly at the moment.
AggreGate was always offering a capability of delayed configuration changes: you can configure a thousand devices and your configuration changes will be delivered on “best effort” basis. But what if you need to execute an operation, e.g. perform a firmware upgrade? Continue reading Delayed Batch Operations
A member of our deployment team, Antony Logoyskiy, has recently visited Sterling, DC for technical training to Triad Systems Engineering, our new partner in the US.
TSE engineers were quite impressed by AggreGate solution flexibility. The most excited part of training was dedicate to developing of visualization. TSE team mentioned the extremely comfortable, useful and easy tool for building widgets and dashboards. Almost all end-customer requests can be implemented in short time.
During this training session we connected all PLCs which are used in production to AggreGate Platform and built several widgets and dashboards for monitoring and management these PLCs.
Please visit Training and Education website section for more details on our technical trainings terms and capabilities.
On October 29, 2015, Tibbo will participate in “Conference. Expo. Meetup”, Russia’s most important event devoted entirely to the Internet of Everything technologies and the Internet of Things market.
According to the organizer, the event will provide an opportunity to learn the most interesting things about the IoT technology of this area, get acquainted with famous speakers, find out opinions of experts, make new business contacts, participate in informative workshops and socialize with colleagues to exchange valuable experience.
Watch how AggreGate is used to remotely control a dual-cam Lego mobile platform with a robotic arm:
And here’s how the UI looks like.
Coming AggreGate 5.3 will feature a long-waited Workflows module. Workflows are user-defined actions that combine server-side data processing operations and operator interaction steps (UI Procedures). The workflows module helps to define those actions by adding various steps that may depend to each other and benefit from conditional branching.
Workflows are ideal for configuring various incident resolution and debriefing patterns that will be interactively launched upon various alerts. Thus, workflows will be crucial for any AggreGate-based umbrella monitoring and management project, be it IT, automation or security infrastructure management.
A senior member of our development team, Daniel Baskakov, has recently visited sunny Barcelona for technical tanning to GTD, our new partner in the region. The two-week training and hands-on experience were dedicated to using AggreGate Platform and SCADA/HMI as an umbrella management system in the Port of Barcelona.
GTD engineers were quite impressed by AggreGate solution capabilities. The learning process was successful and real fun!
AggreGate technical training is normally conducted on-site and adopted to the needs of a specific project. Visit Training and Education website section for more details.
