OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS), a cloud-native, real-time data management system for unifying and augmenting critical operations data from across an organization to accelerate industrial analytics, data science initiatives, data sharing, and other digital transformation projects, has been released for general availability.
With OCS, an engineer at a chemical producer, for example, could combine maintenance and energy data from multiple facilities into a live superset of information to boost production in real-time while planning analysts could merge several years' worth of output and yield data to create a 'perfect plant' model for capital forecasts.
OCS can also be leveraged by software developers and system integrators to create new applications and services or by enterprises and service providers to link remote assets.
The core of OCS is a highly scalable sequential data store optimized for time series data, depth measurements, and similar data. OSIsoft has also embedded numerous usability features for connecting devices, managing user access, searching data sets, transferring data from the PI System to OCS, and other functions. OCS can also accept data from devices outside of traditional control networks or other sources.
