Enterprise Agreement - What is it? What's New?
OSIsoft's Enterprise Agreement (EA) is a software purchase methodology that can ensure a consistent PI System infrastructure across your Enterprise. The EA allows deployment of the PI System infrastructure technology in an unlimited fashion and delivers enhanced services to support your business strategy and needs. As part of an EA contract, OSIsoft also provides access to the enterprise services team and mPI software. This structure allows OSIsoft to help the customer achieve a step-change in the use and value of the real-time information within their company. In the EA program, the customer can use PI System software in a flexible manner to create a real-time data infrastructure that extends company-wide. The services provided by OSIsoft help the customer lower the activation energy required to achieve the value possible from the PI System infrastructure.
