Real-World Solutions, Built by Engineers

Atonix Digital has a twenty-year history of helping plant managers and operators avoid unplanned shutdowns, improve asset efficiency, and gain operational insights.

Analytics was not driving outcomes – So we started Atonix.

Analytics don’t prevent equipment failures or optimize production without strong alignment with the operations & maintenance teams. Atonix Digital was founded on the principle that data is only as good as the action it guides. 

Atonix emerged in 2018 on the heels of 25 years of solution software development at Black & Veatch, working with 100’s of industrial companies.  Over this period, it was recognized that there wasn’t a commercial ready solution that could (1) quickly make sense of large volumes of operating data and (2) deliver clear information to operation teams enabling them to take action.  Atonix was formed to focus on Operational Intelligence on the principle that data & information is only as good as the action it guides to optimize performance, improve reliability and efficiency, detect emerging risks and maximize return on net assets. 

This depth of engineering insight and operations experience enabled Atonix to develop rich AI/ML models templates and refine the ideal team collaboration. AtonixOI is now able to deploy 1000s of models quickly while ensuring that all issues are resolved.

Delivered as SaaS, operating and monitoring assets 24×7 in the secure AWS cloud, AtonixOI is accessed by field personal, engineers, operations, and management with a simple browser on any device.

In December 2016, HBR posted a white paper called Why You’re Not Getting Value from Your Data Science.  The paper presents four principles that align with the way AtonixOI was developed further validating our approach to the marketplace.  Our unique blend of elite engineers, data scientists, and software developers built a platform that builds accurate, custom models quickly at a high volume through automation and embedded domain expertise so our users get results quickly rather than spending months in the model building process.
