Welcome & Introduction
9:45 AM - 10:15 AM
Introduction to the PI System
Attendees of the OSIsoft Regional Seminar are also welcome to join an optional pre-event OSIsoft PI System 101 Overview session. This optional session will cover the fundamentals of the Modern PI System and is tailored for those that are either new to the PI System and would like an introduction to the technology or wishing to update and refresh their knowledge.
10:15 AM - 11:00 AM
Keynote: Why Choose the PI System?
Historical predictive insights in real-time: To stay competitive, companies must continually innovate, improve and streamline their operations. But accurately identifying how and where to improve operations can be extraordinarily challenging if the data that holds the answers is scattered among different incompatible systems, formats and processes. In his keynote, Joe will describe OSIsoft's positioning of the PI System and its ability to collect, analyze, visualize and share large amounts of high-fidelity, time-series data from multiple sources to people and systems across all operations. By accessing key data and insights, the PI System has helped leading companies deliver greater operational improvements and breakthroughs that lead ultimately to comprehensive business transformation. That's the essence - and the power - of PI System operational intelligence.
11:00 AM - 11:30 AM
11:30 AM - 12:15 PM
Analytics: It’s what you do with the data that counts
Industrial Analytics is the buzz of the day. Big data, data lakes, machine learning and artificial intelligence are offering the allure of new insights and answers to efficiencies.  However sometimes the first big win comes from a small improvement and the data your already own.  Learn how you can break down seemingly complex big data problems into a manageable sequence of steps with the PI System.  Even without waiting for completion of a full-blown statistical model, your operational experts can often spot anomalous patterns with little more than a few events captured by PI System event frames and compiled in a report.  And when you are ready to push data to advanced machine learning (ML) tools, the PI Integrator line is available to jump-start your data science initiative with clean, ready-to-consume, reliable data.
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM
Driving Value from the PI System
In this session, Simon who leads Accenture's global PI System practice, will 
  • Introduce Use Case Examples and a Framework how to get the most out the OSIsoft infrastructure
  • Present two specific client stories : a UK Water company that has seen the benefits of the Analytics Framework; and a French power company that is using the PI System in the Cloud

CBM: Just Right, Just-in-Time Maintenance
We are being asked to run equipment longer, faster and harder with less resources while minimizing failures. Condition based maintenance takes a data driven approach to maximizing the performance of your assets and maintenance schedules.  Discover through drag and drop configuration how the PI System can be used for condition based maintenance. Configure digital representations of your assets, calculate key performance indicators (KPIs), and even send notifications or kick off maintenance work flows based on the real condition of your assets.  Kick-starting your CBM project has never been easier with the modern PI System.
2:30 PM - 3:15 PM
Introduction to Data Science for PI System Data for PI Professionals
This talk discusses the process of a successful data science project and demonstrates how to create knowledge from data through good visualization and analytics.
3:15 PM - 4:00 PM
OSIsoft Product Direction

New sensors, new connectivity, and elastic computing in the cloud is providing additional opportunities to gather, access and process data for new 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.

My PI Story: Royal IHC & Rolloos

Daniel Stoyle of Royal IHC and Martijn Handels from Rolloos describe why they chose the PI System over cloud solutions when they needed to make large amounts of industrial data available to their customers. (Presentation “Fleet-Wide Remote Dredging Vessel Monitoring” from PI World Barcelona 2018)
