2010 - Users Conference - San Francisco
PI Data Access and Enterprise Integration
As an enterprise class infrastructure software, PI can deliver more value by “talking” to other business processes such as maintenance, production, and quality in your enterprise. Attend this session to see how the real time PI values and events are transformed into “transactions” in business systems such as SAP, IBM Maximo, and Ventyx AssetSuite. You will also see the use of orchestration and messaging infrastructure tools such as Microsoft BizTalk, SAP MII, and IBM Websphere in the end to end data flow from the plant floor to enterprise line-of-business (LOB) systems.
