We are on the verge of implementing a new system. We really like the new AF2014 and the possibilities of using Acabus. So we are not keen about starting to develop solutions in ACE, just to upgrade in a short time to AF2014. When will the 2014 Beta be "production ready" and would there be any risk to time series data (which are stored in a stable version of PI) by starting out with the AF 2014 Beta version.
Also we want to "validate" som date using Abacus, ie. if the rate of change exceeds a certain limit, if the value goes above or under certain limits, etc. (most rather simple validations). As I see it Abacus would be ideal for this, but what about scaleability? If I want to validate several hundred thausands tags this way? Is that feasable? Or are there better ways to do this?
