The PI Data Archive team has been hard at work on the next major release due in 2015. With this upcoming release, we will deliver a long-requested feature to handle data with future timestamps. We understand many of you couldn’t wait and are already leveraging future data with the PI System via a few workarounds of varying complexity. In this presentation, we will explain how this complexity goes away, and examine the use cases and applications – such as forecasting – that are more easily unlocked by having future data available natively throughout the PI System. In addition to technical explanations, we will perform live demonstrations of our near-Beta build and answer as many questions as possible. We’re looking forward to talking with you and gathering your feedback to ensure this release suits your needs.
