Sensei was founded in 2008 to exploit the evolving capabilities needs of a new generation of substation automation users. Sensei has created an end-to-end solution to manage disparate data from all types of devices, capture this data, aggregate it and create scorecards to provide alerts in SCADA or other enterprise systems – and to allow the engineering, asset-management and security staff to organize their response according to business process and rules.
