Transpara Corporation today announced a partnership with Marathon Technologies, which enables users in the process manufacturing and utility industries to eliminate downtime and ensure 24/7, real-time access to business-critical operational data. The only mobile, composite Key Performance Indicator (KPI) software available, Visual KPI delivers on-demand operations data to any handheld or desktop browser: SmartPhones, PDAs and Blackberry devices. The combined offering of Visual KPI and Marathon’s everRunTM ensures decision-makers throughout the organization can access KPI data that is reliable, actionable and available.
“Transpara has hit on an important trend in the manufacturing sector – aggregating data from multiple sources and delivering it through mobile devices. In order to truly leverage enterprise mobility, 24/7 access to data is a necessity,” said Gary Phillips, president and CEO of Marathon Technologies. “With everRun, we offer significant value to the end user, providing a proven, cost-effective answer for automated availability, reliability and data protection.”
Visual KPI enables users to easily create and customize composite KPIs and scorecards without any additional programming, using data from any combination of existing systems, including OSIsoft’s PI System, SQL Server, Oracle, OLE DB and Web Services. KPIs and scorecards can then be published for instant use by anyone in the organization or supply chain, from plant floor managers and technicians in the field to executives.
“Marathon Technologies’ unique approach to Microsoft Windows availability makes it a seamless and easy choice to enable continuous uptime for Visual KPI,” said Michael Saucier, CEO of Transpara. “With everRun, Visual KPI runs unchanged on commodity-priced hardware, allowing customers to benefit from fault tolerant-class availability at a fraction of the price of alternative hardware-based solutions. With Marathon, customers never miss a beat and always have key metrics at their fingertips.”
