Data is becoming one of the most important assets in every company. There are massive loads of data being created every second. At EDP Produção we have all our Power Plants generating data by the second thanks to the PI System, where we have approximately 400,000 Tags from about 120 power generating units. But how can we make that data useful to our executives, that need to make the upmost important decisions on a regular basis? Where can they access the most important indicators on a business that runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year? With a mix of real time and consolidated data, processed and organized with PI-AF, we can feed through PI Web API an enterprise app that has all the key indicators of our Power Plants and the Iberian Energy Market. Now, everyone on the company can have an overview on how the business is running in a matter of seconds. In this paper, it will be described in detail the solution and architecture of this implementation.
