The PI Web API is a restful web service which allows you to communicate with a PI system (AF or Data Archive) using simple HTTP requests (such as GET) and may well be just what you are after. If you are not familiar with the concept of what HTTP GET is, there may be a bit of a learning curve, may be best to brush up on some of the concepts. There are good learning resources on this site.
