Ingesting PI Historian data to AWS Cloud using AWS IoT Greengrass and PI Web Services

In process manufacturing, it’s important to fetch real-time data from data historians to support decisions-based analytics. Most manufacturing use cases require real-time data for early identification and mitigation of manufacturing issues. A limited set of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) tools integrate with OSIsoft’s PI Historian for real-time data. However, each integration requires months of development effort, […]
