With over 10 years experience designing and delivering OSIsoft PI Historian Systems for customers throughout Australia, Green Technology Services has an unrivalled, in-depth knowledge of the ways in which OSIsoft PI can provide added business value, support continued business expansion, and integrate with various existing systems to further leverage the power of historical analysis.
From requirements analysis, solution design and development, right through to deployment and ongoing support, GTS has the expertise and experience to deliver quality PI solutions that drive business value, and improve business operations.
OSISOFT PI AND IBM MAXIMO INTEGRATION
Leveraging the historian functionality provided by OSIsoft’s PI, and integrating that with IBM’s Maximo Asset Management software, allows GTS to provide highly tailored, automated asset management functionality driven by PI events, and PI historical data. Exposing years worth of PI data to Maximo allows the ability to create proactive work orders for asset maintenance, on an asset by asset basis, allowing business to further minimise downtime and increase operations value.
Automating business processes and increasing enterprise application integration is a key part in creating seamless integration into existing business workflows. GTS has extensive experience integrating complex projects with both internal and external applications using Microsoft BizTalk, to create reliable, CIM compliant exchange of information.
Utilising our knowledge of large scale commercial SCADA and Historian systems, GTS has created its own, smaller scale, historian SCADA system, dubbed “MicroSCADA”. Fully contained on the cloud, MicroSCADA allows smaller companies such as councils and factories to monitor and log energy and water usages, as well as machinery run times, downtimes, and various other data.
SOLUTION DEVELOPMENT CAPABILITIES
Further to the above, GTS has the following automation and integration capabilities, to support custom business solutions regardless of size or scope:
- SCADA development and administration in iFIX, Citect, and ClearSCADA
- Coding proficiencies in Microsoft .NET (VB, C#), VBA/VB6 and Java
- Installation, administration and custom development in Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint and Lotus Notes/Domino
- Microsoft Office automation and Add-In customisation
Often our customers have these skills in-house but in some cases a project manager with specific experience in the system technology is desirable and can’t be found internally; in other cases there are simply not enough internal resources for the volume of project work scheduled.
Whatever the reason, GTS is often called upon to provide technically experienced project management services. We have all played various roles in the software development life-cycle over our many years in the industry so we understand the challenges and we can empathise with both the delivery team and business stakeholders.
