# Explore and investigate

When you investigate a piece of equipment or a system, you usually need access to many different types of data.

Traditionally, users view equipment details in one system, documents in another system, sensor values in another system, and maintenance history in yet another system.

Asset Data Insight speeds up these workflows and lets you view all this data in one place.
