As technology advances, users are expecting to see information that is delivered and displayed in meaningful ways that were not possible just a few years ago – that requires you to have a good set of tools on the belt. This presentation will demonstrate how several products can be mixed to provide custom solutions to problems that any single product could not provide. We will create a simple Min/Max/Avg KPI control built using Microsoft’s Silverlight technology that will connect to PI Web Services, one of OSIsoft’s newest products. This control will be packaged as a SharePoint 2010 Web Part and used in a dashboard with the ability to connect and exchange data with other PI Web Parts. Using this type of solution, the PI System can be extended into areas that previously were either very difficult or impossible. With Silverlight’s graphics support including animation and 2D vector graphics, you can create professional user interfaces that present PI System data in a rich and interactive way. You can develop small focused gadgets that can be embedded into Microsoft SharePoint alongside other web parts or embedded into regular HTML web pages; or you can create larger, full-featured applications.
