We have an existing internal tool that is collecting data from various projects. We would like to further develop or integrate with a visualization, data representations and data analytics tool. Can you help us here?
PI offer lot of interfaces to collect data from Data sources(PI Interfaces and PI Connectors )
Visualization Tools : Visualization
Intergrators : PI Integrators (export data from PI to BI tools,SAP and GIS etc.)
Developer tools : Developer Technologies
Based on your use case you can pick relevant interfaces, visualisation tools and integrators. Please let us know any use case and we can suggest.
The Tools you have mentioned, can they be used as Open Source? Do we need to buy PI System for the above suggestions, if yes what is the cost of a server and a client?
Can our developers develop or reuse PI- Square components? Is there an individual component costing present? Currently our existing tool can be configured by an end-user to collect data from various software project tools like, Jazz, TFS, JIRA, Clearcase, various other project lifecycle tools for tests and development from software project teams. The data collected are sensitive, we cannot have data relocated onto another software tool, which is outside of our organization. Currently we would like to have views (charts, trends), dashboards required by project teams created over these, possibility of dumping meta data which are gathered through the user configuration and Rest API access of tools and in later stages we would like to build data analytics use cases that are coming up.
"internal tool that is collecting data from various projects"
Do you use the PI System? Or looking to replace the "internal tool" with the PI System? Or you want to add the PI System alongside your "internal tool".
I would like to add the PI System alongside our Internal. Currently we are not using Pi system. The reason why I was interested in cost structure of usage of PI System.
Our internal tool is only for collecting data and keeping in Json file format and build small reports, which currently only caters to Project managers and Project Quality Managers. We would like to scale up and cater to complete organization, and heard about Pi Square tool.
PI server is licensed and you can have try and buy license from OSIsoft but for longer run you need to have licensed version.If you are using non-osisoft software programs to interact with PI services then you should be covered under PSA license.
PI Developer Technologies freely available for download (License section)
PI Web API is one developer technology which can be used to access PI system data using REST API.
Thanks will check and get back to you in case required.
