According to McKinsey, poor data quality is a consistent roadblock for the highest-value AI (Artificial Intelligence) use cases in industrial customers with asset-intensive operations. Legacy system architecture and weak data governance also contribute to data quality challenges.
APERIO offers an AI-driven SaaS platform called APERIO DataWise that automates the validation of real-time operational data in industrial organizations. It addresses data completeness, content, and metadata context, using AI and machine learning (ML) to scale, prioritize, and remediate data quality issues. The platform enables monitoring and validating millions of tags with actionable insights for data quality improvement. Their solution fills a gap that non-scalable in-house solutions cannot address and provides clear category leadership. It helps industrial companies make smarter data-driven decisions, improve profitability and sustainability, and mitigate risks associated with poor data quality.
