About Decathlon Services software

Ability to change is a requirement for any industry. As players on the global market, companies are facing fast changes to their business conditions, and adaptability based on registered data is a keyword for any ambitious business. Industrial developments as a result of Industry 4.0 and The Internet of Things (IoT) will create even more data that needs to be analyzed and interpreted. Raw data is useless, unless it is turned into knowledge. Data needs to be analyzed and applied ambitiously and innovatively – to the benefit of decision-makers, the individual industry, and the whole network. This is why we, at ABB, are going all the way and have developed a cyber secure solution that supports effective decision making. We call it Decathlon Software.

Decathlon Software is all about combining plant operations data from control systems, ERP, and other data sources into actionable information. Information that provides the right insights for decision-makers to plan, optimize and continuously improve plant operations, in order to stay competitive in a rapidly changing environment.
