To make the best use of resources in today’s economic conditions, getting PI done right and letting OSIsoft manage the PI architecture allows PI Administrators to focus on the business of adding value. This plant has 10 PI servers, 47 interface computers and 65 interfaces – and one PI Administrator! With the addition of an Enterprise Agreement and Managed PI, the PI servers and interfaces are now current, well tuned and monitored 24x7 by OSIsoft’s NetworkOperatingCenter.
