Osisoft PI System User Day for the first time in Finland
This May saw the first ever PI System User Day seminar in Finland, organized by Osisoft in collaboration with Roima. Encouraged by the positive feedback, the event will in future be organized at least once a year.
On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, Osisoft organized a PI System User Day for the first time in Finland. Hosted at Outotec’s office in Espoo, the event welcomed participants from Finnish industrial companies that have PI System in use. For the first time ever, the event gathered together both system users, professionals, system developers (Osisoft) and integrators (Roima).
The general atmosphere at the event was very relaxed and dialogic. The idea was to present used solutions, share information about the new product features and network with PI professionals. The topics covered during the half-day event included Osisoft product updates and product roadmap (Osisoft), IoT and real-time data in practice (Roima) and PI System core in Outotec’s service business activities.
Of the new product updates, the ones that especially stood out were the new PI Vision features for usability and extendability as well as Osisoft’s extensive investments in IoT and cloud integrations. Roima’s Aki Kössilä gave a presentation about the integration of a data collection system into cloud, which sparked a lot of discussion and interest towards Roima’s services – after all, Roima is currently the only certified PI System integrator in Finland. Aki’s thoughts were very much in line with Osisoft’s story about investments in cloud and IoT product development.
An event worth continuation
The event was praised by the participants for being a great way to share information, challenges and future visions as well as to network with other professionals and customer companies. At the end of the meeting, it was thus decided that a similar event will henceforth be organized at least once a year and developed further at the users’ terms.
Roima will definitely stick around for seconds!
