Collecting data from remote assets is simpler and more economically feasible than ever due to:
These factors are enabling you to gain better visibility into the health of your assets. In fact, asset location no longer matters. OSIsoft's IIoT focus is to extend the PI System data infrastructure to reach wherever your assets live.

We understand the excitement around IIoT. Today’s IIoT solutions can solve operational and business problems that have hampered companies for years. But not every IIoT approach is problem-free.
“I've been hearing a lot about this Internet of Things. This is a good example of that...putting out these low-cost sensors, incorporating them into the PI System.”
— Cameron Sherding, Sr. Software Engineer, DTE
Pervasive data collection, OSIsoft’s IIoT product development initiative, ensures sensor based data from distributed, remote and mobile assets can be collected, stored, analyzed and streamed into the PI System. This initiative
is a fully integrated software stack that contains three core elements:
A portfolio that enables connectivity to devices through more than 230 industry protocols.
A message specification from OSIsoft that shapes sensor based data so that it can be transferred and stored in the PI System.
The PI System can now be deployed on environmentally hardened PCs so you can take the power of the PI Server to your remote assets.
Edge gateways are a new class of computer hardware built with IIoT in mind. Edge gateways make it possible for OSIsoft to provide a distributed architecture where analytics and data storage can live near remote assets.
Synchronizing a local data set with a central server ensures no data is lost over unreliable networks.
Edge gateways are more rugged and field-ready than traditional, rack mounted servers, allowing them to live near the asset. Running a PI Server near a remote asset provides advantages:
“The OSIsoft connector allows us to be able to search
for all the servers that are on a particular network, automatically bring them in and have the data populated
in an automated way.”
— Tyler Duncan, Principal Thermal and Controls Engineer, Dell EMC
Connect the PI System to any industrial data source—any protocol, from any manufacturer—and our technology will pull your data out.
Pool your data in a centralized database—built expressly for time series data—and ensure your entire organization can access and it.
Share your data through the cloud, third party applications access it programmatically using the PI Web API, or push it to an external system using PI Integrators.
Your success in IIoT requires teamwork. OSIsoft Partners are ready to contribute their expertise and services to help you implement your IIoT solutions.
