2016 was a great year here at OSIsoft, and we hope it has been valuable and productive for all of our customers as well.


  • Our development teams worked to produce 35 major product releases in 2016, including:
    • PI Server components - Data Archive, AF
    • PI Notifications
    • PI Coresight, PI DataLink
    • PI Web API, PI OLEDB Enterprise, PI AF SDK
    • PI Connectors for OPC UA, CygNet, PI System Health, UFL, Ping, and Wonderware
    • See all of this and what's on the roadmap for next year: PI System Roadmap
  • We welcomed thousands of customers and partners to two incredible User Conferences: San Francisco and Berlin

    • Seattle, WA | Chicago, IL | Las Vegas, NV | Toronto, ON | Salt Lake City, UT
