Keynote: Digital Transformation with Today's PI System

Our world is getting smarter and more connected with each passing day.  The question that each business must face, therefore, is how to take advantage of this intelligence. One answer is to harness that intelligence to achieve a digital transformation.  Achieving that transformation involves more fully embracing and leveraging both that digital intelligence and the data infrastructures that are already owned and in place.  Through this, organizations can discover and create new opportunities to transform their products, processes, and customer services.  This session will explore how OSIsoft's digital data infrastructure can help you to create and discover such opportunities to transform your world. We'll explore ways to connect and empower people with data, to improve operational insights by integrating data with advanced analytics and visualization tools, and to more fully take advantage of the latest PI System capabilities, OSIsoft services, and OSIsoft partners.
