PI Guy

From the data source to server, to the code solving your problems. It is relatively easy to find a consultant with experience in specific areas of the OSIsoft PI System, but difficult to find someone with the full breadth of experience. If needed, I can analyze trouble with a Modbus interface, or write Angular code to implement a web interface using data from the PI WebAPI.

Any of this sound familiar?

"I've got lots of data, but very little usable information"

"We use PI all the time to figure out why things failed, but we never seem
to get to the point of discovering the problems before they happen"

"I know that there is much more that we could be doing with PI, but I don't really know where to start."
