Why have IT leaders chosen the PI System for over 40 years?
- Security for operations and business
Striking the right balance between monitoring and control is crucial for industrial companies. Business users need easy access to operations data without endangering the control network or accidentally hitting “the red button.” The PI System is based on a distributed architecture and defensive programming techniques that protect the security perimeter. Integration with Windows Active Directory simplifies permissions management. Highly regulated companies trust the PI System to bring best cybersecurity practices to critical operations.
- Maximize your existing investments
Are you a Microsoft shop? Exploring new advanced analysis tools? The PI System handles the first-mile challenges of getting data from your legacy assets, protected control networks, and also newer IoT devices. Make time-series data immediately available to engineers and operators—or let PI System cleanse, normalize and send analysis-ready data to business intelligence tools. Microsoft Azure-based cloud technology allows you to quickly integrate operations data with your existing enterprise applications.
- Self-service is the best service
Engineers and operators don’t need coding or SQL experience to access data from the PI System. PI Server allows you to centrally configure connections to other business systems such as ERP or maintenance databases to enable a single operational data hub. Create streaming calculations and KPIs server-side to drive consistent reporting across the enterprise.
