Real-time GIS Partnership between Esri and OSIsoft - 19/04/2013


OSIsoft, the California-based producer of the PI System, a leading operational data infrastructure for real-time data and events, and Esri, the global leader in geographic information systems (GIS), have announced a strategic partnership to execute their vision of real-time GIS.

Maps are a fundamental way of communicating information - they tell us where things are. By bringing together ArcGIS and the PI System, customers will not only know where things are but what they are doing in real-time, according to Jack Dangermond, president of Esri. By displaying real-time and historical information on a map, Esri customers will unlock opportunities in their data not previously visible.

OSIsoft and Esri aim to bring out-of-the-box integration between the PI System and ArcGIS, enabling a platform for real-time GIS as well as seamless back-office integration between operational data management and GIS.

The partnership will bring significant value to their mutual customers, allowing them to visualise and analyse their operations geographically in real-time at unprecedented levels of detail and scale, according to Dr J. Patrick Kennedy, CEO and founder of OSIsoft. Adding a geospatial dimension to OSIsoft’s data and events management infrastructure has applications across all industries. Both technologies leverage Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud platform, enabling a wide range of secure deployment options on premises and in the cloud.
