At this stage of the game, we've been collecting data from our machines for years, with more data on the horizon (IIoT!). But not all of us are optimally making that data work for us. The whole point of data analytics is generating improved business outcomes from what we learn. In this webinar, reps from Seeq and Smart Industry will dive into advanced analytics, a new generation of software application for engineers to leverage data for profits. We'll share tips on how you can get insights—today—to run your facilities better. We'll talk data-cleansing, contextualization, modeling, calculations and machine-learning for process data. Join us!

Principal Analytics Engineer
Michelle graduated from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) with a B.S. in chemical engineering. She worked for Southern Company, gaining insight into power-generation, then entered the oil-and-gas industry working for Chevron’s Energy Technology Company in California, where she got a deep look at the industry working on projects from upstream to downstream and developing new technologies to improve the whole process. Michelle also worked for the Richmond Refinery, where she came to appreciate the frustration of trying to deal with time-series data in Excel. In her current role, Michelle helps people get the value out of their data by using Seeq to make their work more efficient and the results more effective. She loves seeing the joy on people’s faces when they realize that Seeq enables them to perform analytics in one hour that previously would have taken days or weeks.
