Keynote: The PI System: Empowering People to Deliver Successful Analytics (by RSM)
Today, analytics is promising to deliver new efficiencies within industrial operations. To maximize the value of industrial analytics, you need a strategic approach that addresses edge, enterprise and cloud tools for operations data while minimizing delays and failures from data inaccessibility, intensive data processing, and poor data quality. A successful industrial analytics strategy requires a data infrastructure approach that fosters trust and is optimized for enterprise-wide operational analytics.
This overview session introduces the latest trends within industrial analytics, highlights best practices for success, and shows how the OSIsoft PI System, edge, and cloud technology support different types of analytics for varying audiences – from engineers and managers to data scientists within IT and OT groups.
|9:40 AM - 10:10 AM|
OSIsoft Product Roadmap
New sensors, new connectivity, and elastic computing in the cloud is providing additional opportunities to gather, access and process data for critical operational insights. Learn how OSIsoft is investing in edge and cloud technology to help you to take advantage of the latest digital trends. From an easier-to-manage PI System, to remote equipment monitoring, to data science and data collaboration, this session will share how OSIsoft technology advancements and investments are opening up new opportunities to drive operational efficiencies with minimal effort.
|10:10 AM - 10:40 AM|
Your People Are the Key to Successful Analytics
To take advantage of operational data across the enterprise, you need to enable more people to consume the data: maintenance engineers, general managers, data scientists, and executives. From real-time access and exploration to operational reporting and analytics, users have different data, technology, and application needs. Managers need to know if targets are being achieved. Analysts need operational data integrated with business data. Data scientists need a cleaned operational data set to train machine learning algorithms for predictive capabilities. But raw operational data can be hard to understand, difficult to access in real time, and hard to consume without extensive processing, which leads to trust and quality issues. In this session, we’ll demonstrate how the capabilities of the PI System can be used to gather, structure, process and deliver the analytics needs of different audiences throughout the enterprise, ensuring that any person can access, understand, and trust the data.

The New York Power Authority's Journey to World Class Asset Management
The New York Power Authority (NYPA) has taken bold steps towards OT/IT integration by designing the industry’s first ever Integrated Smart Operations Center (iSOC) that combines Asset Health, IT Network Health, Cyber Health, and Physical Security in a unified space. Utilizing the Enterprise Agreement with OSI, time stamped data has been made available to the iSOC & every Operations Manager, Plant Engineer, and Headquarters Engineer who requires it. Recently, NYPA completed an effort to establish an AF structure that is synchronized with the Asset Management system & deployed a set of standard templates for major hydro and thermal assets such as turbines, generators & transformers which has radically changed the way it accesses and assesses asset health. Templated PI Vision displays built off a consistent AF provide the iSOC, Operations & Engineering teams ready access to data and set the foundations of a world-class asset management program utilizing machine learning & analytics.

Visual Data Analytics for Industrial Operations: Finding the best BI and PI System tools
Many of today’s visual analytics tools have been created for business and financial applications and users. Operations managers and engineers need analytics tools specifically designed for industrial operations, which can deliver real-time insights into process and equipment performance. In this session, we'll explore visualization approaches and discover the options best suited for your operations and business needs. We’ll demonstrate how industrial engineers can easily build operational views with PI Vision, use tools like PI DataLink for ad hoc data exploration in Excel, and leverage Power BI from Microsoft for reporting business and operations data together – all with minimal technical skills.
|12:00 PM - 1:00 PM|

Delivering High Quality Operational Data for Advanced Analytics
Advanced analytics tools and platforms allow businesses to ask more from their operational data and obtain new insights. Yet 60% of Big Data projects fail. Simply ingesting raw operational data into your favorite business intelligence tool or data lake creates significant challenges and barriers to success. Problems with data access, data quality, data structure, and outputs from “black boxes” typically lead to unreliable conclusions or predictive algorithms that are never adopted.
In this session, we’ll cover the challenges of using new analytics tools with operational data; share how the PI System and the PI Integrators deliver analytics-ready data; show how subject matter experts in operations can easily curate data that can be understood by business and IT operations; and demonstrate how the 3rd party advanced analytics tools from Amazon, SAP, and Microsoft, can consume the data for trusted and quality analytics.
|1:30 PM - 2:15 PM|
Enabling Enterprise Analytics for IT Groups Needing Operations Data
Optimizing the value of your critical operations data means going beyond your operations teams. Sharing the operations data with your IT team enables business data to be combined with operations data for added insights, and advanced analytics projects to deliver insights not possible before. To gain value from these enterprise analytics projects it’s imperative these insights are transferred back into the operations environment and the tools used every data by operators and process engineers.
In this session we explore key challenges for supporting IT with advanced analytics projects and how the PI System is best utilized to streamline IT enterprise analytics projects, and importantly transfer insights back into operations to drive efficiencies.
