Insightful Reporting with the PI System
Organizations generally need myriads of reports—production summaries, operational efficiency, downtime monitoring and batch release, just to name a few. The PI System plays an important role in bringing accurate, up-to-date operational data to make these reports much more meaningful. In this session, we will provide an overview of the various methods one can report on PI System data using OSIsoft products and external reporting packages such as Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services and SAP Crystal Reports. We will also take this opportunity to provide an overview of the current state of RtReports.
