Put Yourself on the Map: The Fusion of the PI System and Esri ArcGIS
Esri enables organizations to maximize data and applications by revealing the where in their corporate data. Esri ArcGIS extends the value of traditional enterprise applications by incorporating GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to help visualize, question, analyze, interpret, and understand data. It consists of a scalable platform that works in the cloud, on mobile devices, and within existing information technology (IT) systems. The result is access to better information for organizations at every level that unearths relationships, patterns, and trends that would otherwise remain locked away.
OSIsoft and Esri are working together to help you harness the power of your data with GIS, in real-time. By integrating live asset status and historical information on a map, you will be able to see patterns based on geography and perform rich spatial analysis. The combination of Esri ArcGIS and the PI System will bring your data to life and put you on the map!
