2021 - AVEVA PI World 2021
Join Rob McGreevy and Ronan de Hooge as they share an update on AVEVA s portfolio roadmap and how we are integrating the transformational capabilities of the PI System product suite into AVEVA s software stack. In particular, Rob will share details of the new AVEVA Data Hub, for release shortly, which will bring together many of the existing OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) capabilities on AVEVA Connect, enabling seamless access to operational data and harnessing the power of artificial intelligence to optimize performance. Learn more about what this could offer your business and hear from customers who are already benefitting from combining PI System and AVEVA analytics.
