Database and Historian Systems


Does your company have monitoring and control systems, all different, with separate teams using them and no common reporting format? Unification in these circumstances is what a relational database does best.

Manufacturers in safety critical industries such as airports, nuclear, chemical, pharmaceutical and medical device are responsible for obtaining process data through all stages of operations to ensure appropriate regulatory requirement conformance.

Industrial Technology Systems Ltd (ITS) can offer advice in database and historian solutions. Whether you need assistance in identifying your needs (for example for a FEED), writing a User Requirement Specification or designing and implementing a solution, ITS' team can assist. If you require a well-designed database or historian system, with fast, accurate and reliable data retrieval, you can rely on ITS’ extensive experience.

Since ITS was established in 1991, the company has designed and implemented many systems in regulated industries. ITS’ systems are designed to collect data from all assets across your operations such as baggage handling, chemical and process, drug and medical device manufacture, building operations and HVAC. The systems gather real-time operational data and provide full audit trails and accurate genealogy, required to meet strict industry regulations and guidelines including 21 CFR Part 11 and data integrity.

As an AspenTech, Microsoft, Rockwell, ICONICS and Siemens partner, ITS specialises in the design of robust, reliable and secure relational databases and data historian systems. We combine our database skills and knowledge in automation systems, business processes and industry best practices to build efficient and effective database solutions that optimise operational performance.

If you require tools to analyse your “big data” and turn it into meaningful information that will allow you to make informed decisions, changes and improvements to your organisational operations, please contact us. We can implement a solution to enable you to gain real business value from your data.

ITS’ engineers can also work with you to optimise the performance of an existing database or historian system. Following the evaluation, a report would be produced with a list of recommendations to optimise your database performance.
