Optimizing Global Deployment of a PI System Infrastructure with an Enterprise Agreement
The globalization of the OSIsoft PI System architecture and deployment is the solid base for business value. Starting from the deployment of the PI System in the past, the talk will walk through the journey to a global approach for PI System implementations under the umbrella of our SPIRIT initiative. The talk will also explain how this global approach and the support via the OSIsoft EA has helped Janssen achieve their business goals: Deploying the PI System faster Deploying the PI System cheaper Standardizing PI System architecture, deployment, and support Standardizing PI System content Standardizing PI System visualizations"
