AVEVA Historian, formerly Wonderware

Paired with Citect SCADA or System Platform, this is an excellent process historian. It also works well collecting OPC data. For basic data storage, retrieval, and analysis, this is well suited.This is not well suited for very large deployments. Multiple instances would need to be used to scale up, and the data fed into a second-tier/enterprise historian for corporate user consumption.

Pros

AVEVA Historian, formerly Wonderware

  • Data storage--multiple data sources stream data in real time; it is stored without issue
  • Data retrieval--small to moderate queries and trends are generally fast and efficient
  • Cost effectiveness--it is one of the cheaper (non-enterprise) historian offers and therefore is good value for money (with a reduced feature set)

Cons

AVEVA Historian, formerly Wonderware

  • Query performance--for very long-term/large queries; the latest version which we are yet to commission has some improvements in this area
  • User interface--the trend, query, and Excel add-ins are basic and could do with a refresh; web-based clients are a paid add-on and less full featured, so not a true replacement
  • Connectivity--Wonderware System Platform driver packs are required for additional data source types, where native connectors are not provided by other products

Alternatives Considered

AVEVA Historian, formerly Wonderware

AVEVA Historian, formerly Wonderware, was the best of the process tier historians in terms of reliability and functionality. It is still under development and not a "dead" product. It is also more cost effective than the more full-featured enterprise historians, such as PI, which our organization is not yet ready for. The feature set is at the right cost level, coupled with current support, were the key factors in the decision.
