We just released a new White Paper in "vCampus Library > White Papers and Tutorials > Miscellaneous" that shows you how you can integrate PI System with SAS. The document provides examples and code samples on how the two platforms can be integrated in different ways for various purposes.
SAS is a very powerful platform capable of handling heavy analytical and statistical operations and large amounts of data. Given how powerful PI System is in collecting, historizing, and serving enterprise data, combining the two brings lots of benefits and added value to the investment in the PI System.
We would be happy to hear from you about your existing or potential applications of combining the two powerful platforms.
