OSIsoft provides several products for accessing PI System data programmatically. These products are for use in applications built by partners and customers, and are also used by OSIsoft to build our own applications. The data access products range from PI-specific SDKs to standards-based interfaces such as SQL-based tools and OPC. This presentation will focus on latest developments of our SQL-based data providers that have been redesigned to support OLE DB, JDBC and possibly ODBC with one unified architecture. We will demonstrate a new JDBC driver that will open the PI System to Java and Linux-based development, then briefly discuss the 64bit version of PI OLEDB and look at the upcoming PI System OLEDB provider which in the first version mainly exposes AF Assets.
