It was recently brought to my attention that not many PI Dev Club members were aware of the opportunity to use OSIsoft’s first cloud-based service. PI Cloud Connect offers a free trial, and the Development PI System will work with it. PI Cloud Connect enables people to share data across enterprises in a simple and low-maintenance way. Today there are many customers in many different industries actively using the product, including Power Generation, Transmission & Distribution, Oil & Gas, and Pharmaceutical.

Problems Solved

  • The sharing of data does not require a VPN
  • Deliver asset context along with the equipment data
  • Automatically receive new features
