Being from Israel, where there is a focus on protecting critical infrastructure from cyber-attacks, we initially built Aperio as a powerful tool that gives plant operators the capability to detect sensor data manipulation in OT networks.
In 2018, it became obvious how complementary APERIO was with the OSIsoft ecosystem, and we had our first call with their partner team in February 2018. Later that year, we were invited to attend PI World in San Francisco.
We knew that APERIO had the potential to seriously disrupt the IIoT landscape and when OSIsoft gave us the ‘thumbs up’, it was further validation that we were on to something big.
The big question that arose from that meeting of the minds was: Could APERIO be used to solve a wider set of industrial data issues? If it was better than humans at identifying data manipulation, could it also be better at solving data reliability issues at scale?
We did not know it at the time, but this was one of the catalysts that changed APERIO’s trajectory in a big way. It had become obvious to us that industrial companies were struggling to keep up with the exponential growth of their operational data and managing it properly was becoming increasingly complex. As a result, data quality issues were becoming endemic in large industrial companies. And most exciting of all, APERIO was able to provide a powerful answer to those issues.
Fast forward to today: APERIO DataWise, our flagship product, is a revolutionary AI-based suite of tools that can detect a wide range of data integrity issues in real-time and at scale.
We are lucky to count some of the world’s biggest companies in manufacturing, energy and utilities as our customers. And they are seeing dramatic improvements in their operations – from greatly-improved OEE scores to saving tens of millions each year by avoiding asset failures and unscheduled downtime.
We continue adding integrations and capabilities to monitor even more sensors without losing any of our AI’s precision. All of this was made possible by our world-class team who stay agile and rise to every challenge every day.
After several years of knocking on doors, we are going into 2022 knowing that APERIO is the clear market leader with the right product at the right time.
Take a look at this overview video that provides a high-level introduction to APERIO DataWise. If data quality is an issue at your organization, or we can help with any data initiative you are working on, just give me a shout and we can take it from there.
Finally, I also wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a healthy, peaceful, and prosperous 2022 from everyone here at APERIO.
