HighByte®, an industrial software company, today announced the release of HighByte Intelligence Hub version 3.1 that expands operational technology (OT) data access, governance, and scale capabilities for industrial companies. The release includes a new REST Data Server that acts as an API gateway for industrial data residing in OT systems, so any application or service with an HTTP client can securely request OT data in raw or modeled form directly from the Intelligence Hub—without requiring domain knowledge of the underlying systems.
"With its initial release in 2020, HighByte Intelligence Hub entered the market as a client-based application capable of publishing data to consuming systems. Earlier this year, we released server-based capabilities with the addition of an embedded MQTT broker, allowing systems to subscribe to industrial data sources. In a few short months, we have expanded data access yet again with the ability to request data on-demand from the Intelligence Hub through a REST API," said HighByte CEO Tony Paine. "This technical evolution reflects the maturing Industrial DataOps market and the increasingly sophisticated use cases of our customers. We are listening and committed to staying ahead of market needs."
HighByte Intelligence Hub version 3.1 adds additional capabilities to support data governance and scale, including more flexible configuration management. The Intelligence Hub now allows easy export and import of full or partial project configurations, which can be configured through the user interface, configuration files, or the configuration API. Users can also import models and instances directly from third party systems like Element Unify, supporting AWS's Industrial Data Fabric architecture. In addition, users can dynamically drive template definitions from third party sources and trigger flows for individual assets, streamlining configuration across similar assets and use cases.
"We are particularly excited about the new ability to import and export full or partial projects directly through the user interface. This functionality holds special significance for us as we are running HighByte Intelligence Hub in multiple Docker containers," said Matthew Venter, Solutions Architect at Gousto, an online meal-kit manufacturer and retailer and certified B Corporation. "With the ability to seamlessly import and export projects, we can effortlessly replicate and distribute our configurations across different container instances."
Other features include a new Apache Kafka connector and significant improvements to existing connectors including PI System, Sparkplug, OPC UA, REST Client, AWS IoT SiteWise, Modbus, and the File connector (now with FTP support).
HighByte Intelligence Hub version 3.1 is now commercially available. All new features and capabilities introduced in version 3.1 are included in standard pricing. Please contact HighByte or an authorized distributor to request a trial or purchase an annual subscription license.

Rocket Software, a global technology leader that develops enterprise software for some of the world’s largest companies, today unveiled the latest version of Rocket® Data Intelligence, a self-service data platform built on automation that spans cloud, distributed, and mainframe infrastructures to power the democratization of data. With an intuitive interface and clear visualizations, Rocket® Data Intelligence enables all users – regardless of their background in data science – to see a full picture of the organization’s data landscape and the data context needed to understand which data can be trusted. Organizations that have higher confidence in their data will make decisions that drive better business outcomes.
In today’s fast-paced, digital-first world, organizations are only as powerful as the data they collect, understand, and leverage. According to IDC, organizations with a high level of data intelligence experienced 40% higher financial improvements and 20% higher operational improvements, compared to those with a low level of data intelligence. For too long, the ability to read, interpret, and act upon organizational data has been limited to certain employees. This has left organizations largely in the dark, unable to access, understand, and leverage critical organizational data—slowing decision-making. When organizations have the tools they need to ensure anyone in the organization can easily understand and interpret organizational data—whether it lives on the mainframe or in the cloud—the result is a more productive, agile, and efficient business.
Rocket® Data Intelligence enables all users to take advantage of data lineage capabilities. Rocket® Data Intelligence is automated and tracks the flow of data, from the moment of origin to every instance as it’s accessed and manipulated, so users can trust the data they are using. The platform can be applied at scale and supports more technology connections than any other vendor on the market, meaning the platform can plug and play into the complex environments of the world’s largest organizations, regardless of how they are using the data. Rocket® Data Intelligence benefits users across the entire organization:
Chief Data Officers can focus on delivering the unique value that comes from exceptional data, including uncovering opportunities to optimize costs and reduce compliance exposure
Chief Information Officers can improve upfront planning for the data components of a modernization or growth initiative, thus leading to quicker and more reliable outcomes
Line of Business Leaders can execute business reporting more efficiently to free up resources for garnering data insights
“It cannot be overstated how critical data is within an organization, and it only becomes more powerful and useful when more users within the business can access, share, and interpret data,” said Chris Wey, President, Data Modernization at Rocket Software. “With Rocket® Data Intelligence, enterprises can employ a solution with the breadth in coverage – cloud, distributed, and mainframe – and depth in data intelligence capabilities needed to reduce costs and complexity, streamline integration, and improve decision making.”
With Rocket® Data Intelligence, business and technical users can evolve their data management practices by:
Quickly and comprehensively identifying critical data for business and regulatory requirements
Creating robust plans for change, from updating data flows to managing cloud migration
Streamlining data-driven decision making as business and data needs grow and evolve
Optimizing the organization’s data footprint so it evolves based on the organization’s needs
