January 17, 2018 – Seeq Corporation announced the release of its first update to the Seeq software application in 2018, staying on plan to provide four new releases each year. This is the eighth release of Seeq software in the past 24 months, driven by input from customers expanding their use of Seeq.
Seeq is a visual analytics solution for engineers and scientists in process manufacturing organizations to rapidly wrangle, investigate, and share insights on production data. Target markets include oil & gas, pharmaceutical, chemical, energy, mining, food and beverage, and other process industries.
Recent releases of Seeq have focused on enabling larger deployments through scalability features in the software, and by making the Seeq application easier to use. Scalability features in R19 include parallelization of complex calculations across CPUs within a single server, administration tools for performance optimization, and increased control and visibility by users into their efforts with real time progress indicators.
R19 usability features are focused on capsules, the data objects in Seeq for working with single or multi-dimensional time periods of interest. Users can now select capsules to define a custom group of capsules, for example choosing a set of capsules to define an optimized outcome or failure state. And users can leverage capsules when monitoring processes by seeing which capsules are currently “in process” to compare in-progress batches against historical averages of past results in real-time.
In addition to product development efforts, Seeq has received increased attention from industry and financial analyst firms. Darcy Partners, a technology research consultancy serving upstream oil and gas companies, highlighted Seeq as one of the most innovative advanced analytics firms serving the sector. Their research study looked at more than 100 data analytics vendors and concluded with an invitation sent to a select group, which included Seeq, to present before Darcy Partners' clients at a technology forum in Houston on November 28, 2017.
"Seeq was featured in our study and asked to present to our clients because it developed an innovative approach that puts data science capabilities into the hands of engineers so they can begin solving big data challenges themselves," said Trent Jacobs, a Senior Researcher & Technology Scout at Darcy Partners.
Seeq continues to partner with many process automation firms including Emerson Electric, Inductive Automation, Honeywell, Schneider Electric, and OSIsoft—and provides support for all the historians. Supported historians include GE Proficy, AspenTech IP21, Emerson DeltaV Continuous Historian, Ovation DCS Historian, Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk, and Schneider Electric WonderWare Historian and Citec SCADA.
