OSIsoft’s Software Selected By Major US Intelligence Agency

Agreement places primary focus on situational awareness across critical infrastructure

OSIsoft, LLC, a global leader enabling operational intelligence, today announced that a major U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) Agency has mandated installation of OSIsoft’s PI System software as the information technology-operational technology (IT-OT) infrastructure for situational awareness at several major national facilities.

“We see this as a game changer for OSIsoft and the IC,” said Martin Otterson, senior vice president of sales, marketing and industry at OSIsoft. “As the government continues to optimize critical infrastructure monitoring, there is a need to implement a software foundation that can deliver intelligence on all aspects of facility operations in real-time. We are pleased that OSIsoft has been picked as a proven leader with our PI System software to deliver the intelligence they need.”

The PI System will aggregate historical and real-time sensor-based data from across numerous building, energy and IT systems to provide predictive analytics, improved reliability and better provisioning as part of a common operating picture for the IC’s critical facilities and data centers worldwide.

“The PI System is recognized as the secure standard in operations monitoring for critical facilities. Deployed in over 17,000 sites monitoring 1.5 billion streams of data, the PI System delivers a holistic cybersecurity solution and true convergent monitoring,” said Steven Sarnecki, vice president of federal and public sector at OSIsoft.

“The PI System is the recognized standard used in critical facilities and command centers. From nuclear power stations to the national electrical grid, the PI System is the trusted system to connect and centralize large volumes of distributed data for historical investigation, real-time decision making and predictive analytics,” Sarnecki said. “This project’s reference architecture will be a benchmark for sensor data acquisition and data center operations across the public sector.”

The PI System is used around the globe to manage, monitor, and maintain critical infrastructure, including over 1000 leading utilities, 95 percent of the top oil and gas companies, and top chemical and pharmaceutical companies, as well government agencies at the municipal, state and federal level.

The installation of the PI System is targeted to begin in March 2016.
