Microsoft .NET + OSIsoft PI – Tracking Catalyst Use and the Corporate Plane
Microsoft’s .NET technology promises significant change in how the Internet is used by business. This presentation reviews how .NET has been used together with the OSIsoft technologies to present and manipulate real-time PI data. Specific reference is made to actual applications already deployed by Industrial Evolution, including:
- A catalyst monitoring application connected to live data from an oil refinery
- A flight tracking application connected to Pat Kennedy’s business plane
The presentation also provides details of how the various .NET services were developed and integrated with the PI database and the ICE web displays.
