The Wonderware Historian Server course is a 2-day, instructor-led class designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the features and functionality of Historian Server for System Platform Applications. This course provides lectures and hands-on labs to supply and reinforce the knowledge necessary to use Wonderware Historian Server. The class will demonstrate how to use Historian Server for SCADA and factory data, and how it integrates with ArchestrA technology to extend the capabilities of System Platform applications. This includes how to configure, historize, and retrieve Application Server data using multiple retrieval modes, local and remote summarization, replication, event monitoring, store-and-forward, redundancy, and other features.

Target Audience

Application developers, engineers, system integrators, consultants, and other individuals who need to use Historian Server to store and analyze Galaxy data.


Manufacturing industry experience, some knowledge of Transact-SQL would be helpful.


Classroom, onsite, online.
