Supercharging PI AF – How Asset Intellect and Alarm Sentinel empowers the remote knowledge worker.
Typical of the Kiwi “can do” attitude, Dimension Software has developed a platform that builds on and supercharges OSIsoft’s PI System by exploiting the inherent power of the PI Asset Framework. PI users generally want to see information from other systems in relation to their AF construct. Asset Intellect and Alarm Sentinel is an out of the box configurable platform that delivers to this paradigm with the flexibility to address connectivity to a host of systems including tight integration with PI Vision, maintenance (like SAP & Maximo), spatial (like ArcGIS), drawings, BI (like Power BI), alarms, analytics (like Seeq) along with manual data entry using PI Event Frames. This is critical in a world where remote operations centres and workers require access to data from many different sources without large and complex projects.
David Barker is Managing Director and principal of Dimension Software based in Auckland, New Zealand.

His interest eventually shifted to IT where he worked as a Software Engineer for 8 years at OSIsoft. He went on to create Dimension Software in 2008 with the mission to improve how users can take advantage of PI and non-PI data in an integrated environment.
