Benefits

The benefits of the AquisNet software solution are many.

 

Stability, availability and responsiveness

KISTERS software has a reputation of extreme stability. Software developed by KISTERS is used worldwide by many agencies and industrial players in markets with strict requirements in terms of high-availability and responsiveness that many would find difficult to meet.

  • AquisNet is ideally suited for the industry: management of large regional ambient air quality networks and of small but disaster-critical fence-line monitoring systems on industrial sites. In both applications, stability, availability and responsiveness are key issues. In regional ambient air quality monitoring the general public needs to be updated continuously on the overall air quality situation. Special emphasis is placed on data quality and accuracy during periods of high ozone concentrations in the troposphere in stable and sunny weather conditions, and the need to access high resolution data to identify individual releases of gaseous or particulate pollutants. In industrial fence-line monitoring applications the system must be relied on during hazardous events providing guaranteed responsiveness and availability of data recorded before, during and after the event.

KISTERS achieves astonishing levels of stability, availability and responsiveness by means of sharing application layers between its applications. Time series data management is a core competency of KISTERS who have been producing time series data management software for almost 25 years. Other examples of shared expertise/software layers are: Web publishing, GUI development, and Open Data standardization.
