• Brightlayer: Bringing the digital future into focus

Reveal the possibilities embedded in your data and optimize your operations with a new perspective on achieving your digital transformation goals. 

No matter how you want to drive digital enablement, Brightlayer lets you access data, insights and digital solutions to best meet your business needs. It all starts with your assets and the data they can provide you. We're focused on helping you capitalize on the data and insights from those assets to drive operational value.
Starting with the data produced by assets, Brightlayer gives you the tools to use that data to solve your power management challenges
The experience layer is your destination for access to digital solutions, data, APIs and services. It’s a space where customers, partners and developers will be able to collaborate and leverage our digital platform components to create and sell intelligent power management solutions.  
The software layer represents industry-focused suites of software solutions that provide data and insights that drive real operational value for your facility, process, machine, asset or across your enterprise. Software, data and services coupled with our industry expertise helps give you the ability to leverage reliable, secure and actionable data to power your operation.
The platform layer is a set of open, extensible development components that enable intelligent power management solutions. We’re using this common set of technologies in the cloud, at the edge and in on-premise environments to drive development scale and speed in our organization and to help you do the same in yours.
The data layer ensures that whether the data you have is from Eaton or other manufacturers’ devices, we can process it through our platform to leverage our AI and machine learning algorithms for insights or pass it through securely to platforms or applications you already have deployed. It’s up to you.

Brightlayer makes it easier for you to drive operational value by leveraging the intelligent, actionable insights that come from your data.

The Brightlayer choice: Powering operational value with data and insights

On average, 60-73% of data within an enterprise is not used for analytics1. Unlocking the value of hidden data means enabling closed-loop decision-making with the insights derived from that data. Enter Brightlayer, combining our deep domain knowledge with artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data processing technologies to help you make efficient, real-time decisions to optimize power management across your organization.

It begins with how we design our products. We’ve thought through the elements of data enablement, including connectivity, storage, security and enrichment, and how they need to work together to best enable both Eaton and third-party assets to connect, collect, analyze and deliver the situational insights required for operational decision making. We’ve developed open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that enable you to process data from any connected asset and access through your existing operational software or our industry software suites to give you the insights that help form a more complete picture of your power use.
