IMA Data Room

Data Rooms, secure in-cloud environments where production data can be saved, are becoming an increasingly important element in the companies' production strategy.

In today’s production and economic landscape, Data Rooms are acquiring ever greater importance. Storing and organizing the amount of information and data that are constantly produced within the production flows in a safe place and in such a way that they are easily accessible has become essential.

And this is where the IMA Data Rooms come into play, virtual spaces in cloud where all information are collected and stored through IIOT technologies and where the data analysis software programs reside.

Throughout these protected digital spaces (located in production facilities or on cloud platforms) data are collected and preserved from cyber attacks, ready to be analyzed and re-processed to generate new technological solutions and improve production results.

IMA DATA ROOM
OVERALL ARCHITECTURE

  • Technology based on PTC ThingWorx
  • Microsoft Azure Cloud
  • Data-lake based on Influx DB and PostgreSQL
  • Secure access via API only
  • Modularity and scalability
  • Historicalization on secondary systems
  • Customer segregation

PTC THINGWORX

The technology on which Data Room is developed and maintained is IIoT Thingworx platform, created from PTC, worldwide market-leader.
ThingWorx simultaneously removes technical barriers to the IIoT implementation, with an emphasis on practical solutions that deliver value quickly:

  • Accelerated Innovation
  • Edge Connector (KepServer & EMS)
  • Maximum Flexibility
  • Latest generation technologies

The environment and technological solutions offer all the components necessary to collect, manage and analyze the data collected from the field, solving all technical problems and leaving room for the development of the application that generates value.

CLOUD MICROSOFT AZURE

Thingworx IIoT Platform is based on Azure cloud technology, provided with the highest quality services for the management of digital platforms.

Always up-to-date services and security patches

All software renewals and updates are managed automatically so as to always ensure maximum security of the IT infrastructure.

Keeping your data safe

One of the most advanced and secure cloud data storage services on the market that uses the most up-to-date security protocols to encrypt corporate data.

Integrated disaster recovery and backup

Azure Backup Services save files, folders, virtual machines, applications and workflows to the cloud while Azure Site Recovery provides a backup site for internal servers and workflows.

DATA INGESTION: INFLUXDB

Data ingestion is managed by Influx-DB, a latest generation times-series database developed by MIT, which offers inimitable performance for time series data:

  • High performance in writing and reading
  • Very little disk space occupied
  • Free schema, defined by the data entered
  • Rollup of data to reduce the granularity of the information over time.

DATA ACCESS WITH API

The information generated by the Data Room algorithms can only be retrieved through specific APIs, which comply with the highest cyber security standards.

This architecture offers maximum flexibility and scalability of the service, thus guaranteeing a single focal point that stores, processes and prepares the data received from the field and makes them available to any fixed or mobile device that has the right of access.

CUSTOMER SEGREGATION

The Data Room guarantees customer segregation of data through cyber security policies and access managed by differentiated permissions that prevent unauthorized access.

All accesses are tracked and managed securely.
