Using PI Cloud and Transformation to Drive Operational Performance
Coriance, a French District Heating company delivering sustainable energy (with 80% from renewable biomass and geothermal power sources), is driving optimized operations and improved asset performance across its diverse portfolio of power facilities. It recognized that its legacy monthly management reporting was both time consuming to collect and prepare but also would not drive the necessary day-to-day improvements in performance that it shareholders and customers demanded. Coriance turned to Accenture to provide a cloud-based analytics platform combined with business transformation to provide operational insights and actions to help drive the day-to-day performance outcomes. Core to the Accenture platform is the OSIsoft PI System and AF deployed within an Azure environment with an innovative commercial and technical model that provides flexibility and agility of cloud with the scalability, storage and performance of the OSIsoft solutions.
