With Client (Excel and datalink) and server (AF) computing equally used heavily in the analysis of PI data, where is the direction going for Osisoft?

Will more computing be done in the server side (AF elements, attributes, analytics) or will the client side do the computing?

Will the client side only do visualizations?

Will datalink be obsolete one day and analytics will be done in the AF platform and piped through PI integrators?

Distributed or centralized computing?

Thank you for the insights,
