David Doll, OSIsoft: Where IoT means MLB
It stands for something pretty simple: Plant Information. But the PI System is actually ubiquitous. In fact the PI System brand name is, in some cases, better known than OSIsoft. The PI System was installed at Safeco Field, and it immediately provided visibility and real time data for Mariners’ executives about the operations of the ballpark. Which is important when you consider that teams have much less knowledge about the business of their stadiums, about how their stadiums perform, than they do about how their players perform. IoT is putting a digital presence, a sensor where it didn’t exist before to feed data to other machines, to get them and humans to react.
