OSIsoft, a producer of performance management software, has made available PI Notifications, an alarm and alerting infrastructure, and PI AF 2.0, the underlying structural database. PI Notifications and PI AF extend data management and real-time event notification delivery and allow customers to access, organize and provide alerts on their data, according to the company.
PI AF can be used in asset-intensive industries, including the transmission and distribution market, to support initiatives such as advanced metering infrastructure and the integration of real-time data with models such as a common information model.
"The combination of PI Notifications with PI AF comprises a significant step forward in providing customers with an enterprise-wide solution that enables users to easily integrate with new technology platforms, access PI System data in various contexts and analyze their data in new ways," says Patrick Kennedy, CEO and founder of OSIsoft.
In addition to alerting and alarming, the combined solution offers organization of enterprise-wide data, including non-PI data in AF, reuse and template support of asset structure and notification rules, redundant calculation engine, extensible architecture on which to customize logic and rules, and historical archiving of all alarms and message delivery for auditing and analysis needs.
