for Distributed Systems Management
NI has announced SystemLink application software for distributed systems management. SystemLink is designed to help improve operational efficiency through a centralized interface for automating tasks such as software deployment, remote device configuration and system health performance monitoring.
SystemLink enables engineers to connect, deploy, and manage distributed systems, both NI and third-party, through a centralized interface accessible from anywhere, making it possible for them to remotely configure and deploy software, monitor the health and performance of their equipment, manage alarms, and visualize application parameters. Additionally, engineers can automate the communication of data to customer-defined dashboards and remote operator interfaces.
SystemLink is the latest addition to NI’s software-centric platform that features products tailored to needs within distinct stages of their workflow – products that have been adopted in whole or in part by more than 300,000 active users. With LabVIEW engineering system design software at its core and TestStand test management software handling overall execution, this workflow is designed to help improve the productivity of test and validation labs across many industries. Each piece of the workflow is also interoperable with third-party software to maximize code/IP reuse and draws on the LabVIEW Tools Network ecosystem of add-ons and tools for more application-specific requirements.
NI provides engineers and scientists with a software-centric platform that incorporates modular hardware and an expansive ecosystem. This approach puts users in control of defining what they need to accelerate their system design within test, measurement and control.
