"Data scientists spend more than 50% of their time on data janitor tasks."
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 16, 2017
OSIsoft LLC, an SAP Solex partner, today announced that it will participate at SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 16–18 in Orlando, Florida in booth #1331.
SAP HANA IoT Integrator breaks down data silos by automating the process of bringing data from machinery, SCADA systems, IoT gateways and other operational devices to SAP applications. SAP HANA IoT Integrator cleans, augments, shapes and transmits data from OSIsoft’s PI System for use and consumption in SAP HANA, SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service and other SAP Leonardo applications.
With SAP HANA IoT Integrator, for instance, financial departments can obtain production data across multiple plants from the OSIsoft PI System and combine it with sales and shipping data to analyze productivity. Supply Chain departments, likewise, can use SAP HANA IoT Integrator to fuse real-time data more easily into shipping schedules. The new version of SAP HANA IoT Integrator, announced at SAP’s SAPPHIRE event, accelerates insights by supporting streaming and dynamic updates. The first version of the integration technology, debuted in 2015, was designed to harvest OSIsoft PI System data at intervals created by users, i.e. every minute or fifteen minutes. The new version provides flexibility to send data whenever new data is generated or in predetermined timeframes, ensuring that users can choose the most efficient view into their operations.
SAP HANA IoT Integrator has already been adopted in several industries including renewables, oil and gas and manufacturing. To accelerate the digital transformation and leverage the innovation quicker, mutual OSIsoft and SAP partners, like Capgemini and Critigen have built additional use cases.
“Data scientists often spend more than 50% of their time on ‘data janitor’ tasks like preparing and organizing data and it’s often the least enjoyable part of their work. As a result, Big Data and digital transformation often can take far longer and cost far more than necessary,” said Aaron Pratt, Director, IoT/Global Channels. “We’re very excited to be working with SAP to simplify the process and give more people the ability to tap into the vital signs of their company.”
The announcement was made at SAP’s annual customer event, SAPPHIRE, taking place in Orlando, Florida. A large upstream oil producer will be on hand to discuss the results at the OSIsoft booth #1331. OSIsoft will also be at the Critigen booth #986C demonstrating how OT data from the PI System can be used to enable geospatial views and enhance work management as well as at the Capgemini booth #300 demonstrating how OT data from the PI System can be used to create the Digital Control Room for upstream oil & gas.
The Life of PI System
The PI System is one of the world’s most widely used technologies for the Industrial Internet of Things.

The PI System can be found behind the scenes at offshore wind farms, pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities and municipal water networks, among other facilities, ensuring safety and quality of service.
