Achieving Operational Excellence: Insights from AVEVA Operations Day, Finland 2023
As an endorsed system integrator to AVEVA and premier partner to OSIsoft, and we were thrilled when the merger between the two systems was announced. We packed our bags and traveled to Amsterdam with great enthusiasm to the first global event where the systems and their portfolios would be the center of attention.
AVEVA PI World in Amsterdam
The face-to-face interaction is back – finally, we meet customers and colleagues in person. AVEVA PI World is an event where you can network and expand your knowledge from the two communities. Keynote speeches, industry talks, customer presentations, and more exciting features filled the agenda as well as having your questions answered by experts. Undoubtedly, the biggest benefit is the combination of meeting familiar faces, having rewarding discussions, and connecting with new people.
What You Need to Know on Hot Topics
Over the years, we have helped leading global companies profit from AVEVA and OSIsoft through smaller SCADA projects to large multi-site MES or PI initiatives and anything between. We are proud to be one of the few companies in the world that are at the highest level of partnership with both AVEVA and OSIsoft. Thus, we have years of experience in successfully helping customers select and configure products from AVEVA’s product portfolio to create sustainable value in their production.
Through conversations at the event, we are happy to share views and knowledge that might be useful to you and your work procedure.
The Future After PI ProcessBook
If you are not already familiar with this, PI ProcessBook will retire by the end of 2022. So, we need to find an alternative in these times with an ever-increasing focus on cyber security. Many have already taken initiative yet; many still need help finding a suitable solution.
If you are not already familiar with this, PI ProcessBook will retire by the end of 2022.
An alternative solution would be PI Vision with good features and the choice to migrate from PI ProcessBook. But the entire AVEVA product portfolio entails other suitable replacements depending on how you use PI ProcessBook today, your future intentions of data information, and possible interactions with other systems.
AVEVA InTouch or OMI
Several of our customers need help deciding which installation to choose between the AVEVA InTouch and OMI. For new installations, we will recommend OMI, as it goes well with diverse types of industries. But, if you already have an installed base of InTouch, the value of switching to OMI may not be that great. InTouch is still a powerful environment, but even here, we would like to recommend that you actively take this on your future strategic planning agenda.
In recent years, Cyber security has been a hot topic, and it will become a critical decision-making factor in the future choice of suppliers and software products. To make an environment as secure as possible, the integration and how the products are used and configured must be managed properly. In this case, we have an advantage, as we are at the highest level of partnership with AVEVA. Thereby, our certified employees have the best know-how of the functioning of the products and are also able to aid in strengthening the security of customers’ existing AVEVA solutions.
