Enel Experience with OSIsoft and the PI System
Use of the OSIsoft PI System has given Enel the benefits of integration of data from several sources, across the board easy access through generic client tools, fast access to a huge amount of data for analysis and real time calculations for plant management. Extended availability of data through the PI System has improved existing processes and made possible new control and management processes.
After extensive use of PI System products, Enel signed an Enterprise Agreement with OSIsoft in 2011 which provides unlimited access to the PI System products and new services to different business units in several countries. The new scope provided by the Enterprise Agreement has allowed Enel to deploy PI System products in more plants and get more value from the system through OSIsoft staff's direct involvement in system monitoring, management, project consultancy and training.
