FogHorn, a developer of Edge computing software and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions, recently announced the availability of new  features for its Lightning Edge AI platform, including tools and enhancements to empower operations technology (OT) professionals.

The new drag-and-drop analytic programming capabilities and rich visualization dashboards are designed to enable OT staff to derive insights more quickly from real-time data without the need for assistance from data science teams.

This latest release of Lightning Edge AI reportedly makes several improvements for the productivity of OT teams, including:

Redesigned VEL Studio for No-Code Analytic Creation
A visual programming tool, VEL Studio creates simple to sophisticated analytic expressions that derive actionable insights from streaming control & sensor data. A newly introduced drag-and-drop library of over 100 built-in code blocks will let OT professionals perform traditional data science tasks without the need for any programming skills.

Enhanced Reporting with VIZ Dashboards
VIZ Dashboards allows OT teams to visualize real-time data streams and monitor the efficiency and health of their environments. Based on how the user needs to employ each dashboard, widgets can be drawn to any size and include data visualizations, such as line graphs, bar charts, gauges, last state cards, maps, video feeds, images, and containers for nested dashboards.

“Lightning Edge AI was designed with OT professionals in mind as a bridge between subject matter experts and deriving actionable insights from real-time data,” said Sastry Malladi, CTO, FogHorn. “The simplicity of the new VEL Studio and code blocks empower OT teams to gain meaningful business insights with easy-to-use data science capabilities without the need to code or be an analytics expert.”
