  • New exclusive method for handling missing values in tree algorithms
  • Integrated Cross Validation functionalities for automatic tuning of modelling parameters

Increased productivity with new functions to efficiently process big data:

  • New manager for attributes statistics with filtering, sorting and visualization functions
  • Additional functionalities for creating attribute sets from models (Improved advanced capabilities for managing attribute sets).
  • Temporal computed attributes (time shifting, moving averages and discretisation, etc.)
  • Support of several time units (Excel and Unix time)


Value chain of information

Don’t forget to check out DATAserver, a new web service solution, automating the data extraction, preparation and merging process from multiple production sources, including Osisoft PI, Wonderware, Wonderware eDNA, Aspentech IP 21, etc. DATAserver and DATAmaestro work hand in hand to offer a robust workflow from raw data to analytics. DATAserver allows DATAmaestro analytics projects to be updated automatically using the autonomous extraction and merging process, creating a full value chain of information. This brings companies a step closer to quickly and continuously analyse their data in order to achieve understandable, useful and manageable results.
