However, growing a product is not only about adding new capabilities, it’s also about improving the product experience for our users.”

Next generation productivity in Industrial Analytics
TrendMiner enables production experts in process manufacturing industries to analyze, monitor and predict operational performance using sensor-generated time-series data. These operational experts, and all the use cases they have worked on over the years, have been very influential in bringing new TrendMiner capabilities to market quickly.

Nick Van Damme continued: “Ease-of-use for all users is crucial for the successful democratization of analytics. Over the years we have received many usability improvement ideas and feature requests from our users. Today’s new TrendHub interface is the result of working with our users, our customer success engineers and our customers to make the TrendMiner-experience faster and easier for everyone. The new trend analysis client will help process and asset experts analyze their production processes and improve operational performance faster than ever, making their company more agile to address fast changing market demands."

Multi-language support for global user community
Many TrendMiner customers operate in multiple countries, with users who prefer to use applications in their local language. Besides English, TrendMiner 2020.R2 makes the full application available in: German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Mandarin and Simplified Chinese. The language the user sees is determined by the language setting of their web browser.

Rob Azevedo, Product Manager at TrendMiner added: “A common saying in product development is: ‘If your customers love your app and what it does, they'll love it twice as much in their own language’. We believe that this also applies for our self-service industrial analytics application that is intended to accelerate the democratization of analytics within the process manufacturing industries.”

In-app notification center makes 24/7 automated process monitoring worry-free
TrendMiner has always provided an inbox for all notifications triggered by user-created process performance monitors. TrendMiner 2020.R2 extends this service with a new in-app notification center, which informs users of a range of background operations. These include sharing of work items, status updates of context items imports & exports, status update of OSIsoft PI AF/EF synchronizations, and notifications of monitors that have been turned off by the system.
