Over time, many PI programs have been superseded by newer ones, but this has not always been made clear. This post compiles suggestions from OSIsoft's feedback website that focus on making this succession clearer or that promote the migration to the newer product or a newer technology. PI ProcessBook migration suggestions are excluded. Cross-platform suggestions are included only if the old platform is deprecated.
Some root words of search terms that I used include: deprecate, legacy, old, outdated, migrate, supersede
These are the suggestions that ask for greater support for legacy technology. If the legacy technology poses a security risk, it is excluded. Let me know if any of the suggestions below pose a security risk and I will remove them from the list.
