Are you trying to capture data in the PI System from a new data source?

Do you have picture or video data that needs to be analyzed and stored into PI?

Are you interested in how you can get your IoT data into PI? Are you interested in edge or cloud data storage?


Check out the "Learn How to Leverage OSIsoft Message Format (OMF) to Handle IoT Data Streams" hands-on lab at PI World SF 2018:


This lab, Learn How to Leverage OSIsoft Message Format (OMF) to Handle IoT Data Streams, was created by the OSIsoft Applied Research team based on a couple different projects undertaken by the research team in the last year.  For the lab, we will explore what it takes to get simulated sensor data, weather data, and picture classification data using machine learning into OMF and send that to the PI System, OSIsoft Cloud Services and Edge Data Store.  This lab is offered on Thursday (Day 3) afternoon of PI World and during it, we will do some basic programming in Python and Javascript, with the configuration in Node-RED.  If any of these topics – OMF, PI Connector Relay, OSIsoft Cloud Services, Edge Data Store – sound interesting, come learn more about it in this lab: Learn How to Leverage OSIsoft Message Format (OMF) to Handle IoT Data Streams.

Hi All,


Thanks for attending the webinar, where we covered the following topics on PI Vision:

  • Latest Features & Highlights of PI Vision
  • Live Demo
  • Conversion of PI Process Book Displays to PI Vision Displays
  • PI Vision Extensibility


We have made the materials used in the session available for everyone. This includes the slide deck, recording of the session and the PI System Jumpstart brochure.


The link to the recording can be found here. The other documents are attached to this post in PI Square.


If you have any feedback, please let us know in the comments below.



P.S. In the Q&A session, I said I had to double check if PI Vision accepted GIFs in displays. After I did a test, I can confirm it does accept GIFs.


Moderator note: I've removed the attachement of the "PI System Jumpstart Workshop Datasheet.pdf ". Here is the link to the updated file:
