I want to use pi analysis to analyze various assets and use the output to trigger maintenance PMs in Infor EAM, a work order software/database. Does anyone have any experience tying these to system together? Pros/cons? Things to avoid?
PI AF Notification supports to trigger a web service endpoint (both REST and SOAP) A brief search finds that Infor EAM supports these 2 web service protocols among Java, SQL and .NET methods.
In conjunction with PI Analysis, Notification 2017 can be used to alert an WS endpoint with an Event Frame Analysis trigger.
To me, utilizing below route seems like the most natural way to go.
Trigger - PI Analysis using Event Frames
Send a notification to Infor EAM - Notification with custom REST or SOAP web service delivery channel
