Transpara Corp. and OSIsoft have reached an agreement to form an OEM relationship in which OSIsoft’s PI historian will be embedded into Transpara’s Visual KPI software. Transpara is a provider of operations intelligence software that delivers on-demand operations data from multiple data sources to any desktop or mobile browser.
The OEM agreement enables end users to trend KPI status and calculations by adding time series capabilities even if their back-end data source is not time series-based. With the ability to determine trends over time %%MDASSML%% in addition to instantaneous snapshots of role-based data %%MDASSML%% decision makers benefit from comprehensive, complex and rich analysis of business-critical data. Through the OEM relationship, Visual KPI embeds data history in the product, facilitating KPI trending and allowing users to create more interesting scorecards with their data, such as “All KPIs that entered the‘High’ state in the last 60 minutes.” Users can build scorecards and queries to trend KPI status without additional programming, leading to richer, more comprehensive analytics about the state of operations. Adding history to non-time series KPIs will be as simple as checking a box on the KPI configuration screen.
