OSI Software believes that the customer owns the data therefore data analysis should not be limited by the software. Although OSI has developed many tools for analyzing PI data, the primary goal is to provide customers with easy access to the data both through PI client applications and other applications. PI is commonly used as the underlying infrastructure for plant information integration projects.

Acquisition of plant data into the PI data archive is accomplished using OSI's extensive library of standard PI interfaces to major control systems. The PI data archive acts as the warehouse for both real-time and historical process data. In addition the PI System supports multiple ways to integrate with relational databases or other sources of stored data.

The PI-API (application programming interface) and PI-SDK (software development kit) are used to access PI data for other applications, such as modeling or advanced control applications. PI-ProcessBook includes embedded VBA and can contain ActiveX controls, enabling even tighter integration for component based applications.

PI-ODBC extends the reach of the Plant Information (PI) System, enabling your PI System to interoperate with all major, established database systems. This connectivity enables users to gain maximum business advantage from the data and information distributed throughout their corporations.
