is a comprehensive software infrastructure that addresses the challenges of creating device-to-enterprise applications. It serves as a central console for connecting real-time operational data to the people and systems that manage workflows in smart buildings, data centers, industrial processes, smart cities and other aspects of business enterprises.
Niagara provides the critical, cyber-secure device connectivity and data normalization capabilities needed to acquire and unlock operational data from device-level and equipment-level silos. The control engine at the core of Niagara enables users to not just monitor data flows, but to create logic sequences that effect controls programming based on data observation.
Systems integrators use the data management and user presentation applications built into Niagara to manage histories, schedules and alarms. They can create custom user interfaces for end users with the tools built into Niagara, or purchase graphical UI templates and components from the many Niagara partners that specialize in graphics and dashboarding.
