Keynote: The PI System: Empowering People to do Successful Analytics
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.

We’ll demonstrate how 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.
