OSIsoft Regional Seminar Series Wraps Up Wildly Successful U.S. Tour2009 Regional Seminars

It’s over.  The projectors are packed up, the airline tickets used and discarded, and the last hotel key turned in.  But now that the hugely successful 2009 Regional Seminar Tour has wrapped up we find ourselves with a valuable resource.  The Regional Seminar Tour lives on, in a library of dozens of presentations on the latest and greatest uses of PI from around the world.  And this vast library is now available on line here.

More than 800 dedicated users turned out for this series, and more people helped make it possible.  It all started in Boston last July and just wrapped up in Seattle this November—it it appeared in twenty cities and drew people from five continents.  These one day events featured presentations by OSIsoft experts and users telling in their own words and slides how they use PI in each key industry we serve.

Of course, there was way too much to pack into a single day, so we had to pick and choose for each event.  Fortunately, now that it’s all over, you can look back with us and pick the presentations you wanted to see, but had to miss.  Just reading this list of presentation titles arranged by industry tells the vast variety of uses and solutions to which our users put PI…it’s pretty amazing.
