  • NO MORE RESTRICTIONS

    COLLECT EVERYTHING

    Chief's modern and cost-effective licensing model empowers our customers with the ability to collect real-time data from across the enterprise and share this freely and easily within their organisation. By removing restrictions on tag limits, user numbers and database size, our customers are able to simply focus on maximising the value from the data within their Operational Technology environment.

  • BIG DATA, BIG PERFORMANCE

    LARGE AND COMPLEX DATASETS

    Chief's finely tuned proprietary database engine is capable of processing millions of discrete point changes every second and storing hundreds of terabytes of data. Compression algorithms within Chief continuously work to minimise storage requirements, enabling our customers to instantly access a complete history of their data online without the need for archiving.

“Whether it is SCADA, Smart Meters, Fault Recorders or Communications Devices, Chief delivers powerful insights into your assets’ performance”

“Chief’s minimal footprint allows for on-premise, cloud, or in the field as an IIOT appliance”

  • ORGANISED VIEWS

    HIERARCHICAL STRUCTURE

    Chief supports hierarchical organisation of your points in a tree structure, much like files and folders on a computer. This facilitates ease of access by laying out points based on geographical or operational requirements. Points in Chief can also be symbolically linked to other points, much like files on an operating system. This high degree of flexibility makes it easy to create custom views of your system for operations, maintenance and planning purposes.

  • FLEXIBLE AND OPEN

    THE POWER TO INTEGRATE

    Chief is built on open standards, with a complete set of REST and SOAP interfaces enabling seamless integration with your existing and new systems and applications. Chief’s out-of-the-box support for MQTT, SNMP, ModBus and DNP3 protocols extend the power to communicate and integrate with a vast array of network and field devices.
