OSIsoft is connecting people with data in ways that were physically or economically unrealistic before. Collecting data from remote assets is simpler and more economically feasible than ever. Innovative sensor technology, ubiquitous network connectivity, falling compute and storage costs—together they’re knocking down the barriers to gaining visibility into the health of your assets. Asset location almost doesn’t matter. OSIsoft’s IIoT focus is to extend the PI System data infrastructure to reach wherever your assets live.
We understand the excitement around IIoT. Today’s IIoT solutions can solve operational and business problems that have hampered companies for years. But not every IIoT approach is problem-free.
Pervasive data collection, OSIsoft’s IIoT product development initiative, ensures sensor based data from distributed, remote and mobile assets like pipelines, transmission lines, drilling and mining equipment can be collected, stored, analyzed
and streamed into the PI System for further aggregation, visualization, analysis and integration with existing decision workflow processes. In addition, where existing automation systems cannot accommodate new sensors, or are too costly to upgrade,
OSIsoft’s pervasive data collection architecture allows new streams of sensor based data to be added to the PI System in parallel to the automation system data then aggregated with the existing automation system data and viewed through
a common lens. The pervasive data collection initiative is a fully integrated software stack that contains three core elements:
Edge gateways are a new class of computer hardware built with IIoT in mind. Edge gateways make it possible for OSIsoft to provide a distributed architecture where analytics and data storage can live near remote assets. Synchronizing a local data set with a central server ensures no data is lost over unreliable networks.
Edge gateways are more rugged and field-ready than traditional, rack mounted servers, allowing them to live near the asset. Running a PI Server near a remote asset provides advantages:
Connect the PI System to any industrial data source—any protocol, from any manufacturer—and our technology will pull your data out.
Pool your data in a centralized database—built by us from the ground up expressly for time series data—and ensure your entire organization can access and benefit from it.
Share your data through the cloud, 3rd party application access it programmatically using the PI Web API, or push it to an external system using PI Integrators.
Your success in IIoT requires teamwork. OSIsoft Partners are ready to contribute their expertise and services to help you implement your IIoT solutions.
