Enterprise Agreements – The Value of Managed Services and Managed Software
OSIsoft’s Enterprise Agreement (EA) provides a software purchase methodology that can provide a consistent PI System infrastructure across your Enterprise. The Enterprise Agreement allows deployment of the PI System infrastructure technology in an unlimited fashion and provides enhanced services to support your business strategy and needs. As part of an EA agreement, OSIsoft also provides access to the enterprise services team and mPI software. Alton and John will describe the managed Services and Software provided to enterprise customers. This talk will give an overview of the EA program to customers that are new to the program or just looking to gain a better understanding of the value of EA Program components.
