We've made a minor change to the name of our upcoming PI OLEDB Enterprise release. We had been planning to release it in 2015 and call it 2015. We had to delay our release so our development team could focus on exposing data from the PI Integrator for Business Analytics through PI ODBC 2015. So, we now look forward to releasing PI OLEDB Enterprise 2016 around the time of OSIsoft User Conference 2016 in San Francisco. Here's a short list of enhancements:
- Future Data support,
- Hidden and Excluded AF Attribute support,
- AF's delta time strings which means, for example, a monthly report will cover the calendar month and not just 30 days,
- Support for Summaries as both Table-Valued Functions and Function Tables, and
- UTC mode which causes all times as be represented in UTC. We have added functions to convert to and from local time.
This name change from 2015 to 2016 also affects the Classic provider: PI OLEDB Provider 2015 is now PI OLEDB Provider 2016.
