Digital transformation with
PI System

A business digital transformation represents a huge opportunity for innovation and competitive advantages. This requires to rethink the entire business organization: cultural, strategic, technologic and operational changes, where processes take a fundamental role among with data. Some new technologies such as Big Data and IoT force organizations to "move faster" and stay on guard for digital transformations.

Integrating the Operational Technology (OT) with the Information Technology (IT), it's one step forward to operative efficiency and production costs reduction. Also, this is one way to stop isolating the line of work.

Benefits from IT/OT Convergency
for all type of industries
Making OT and IT systems interoperable, improves intelligence and real time decisions support in every organization area.

PI System improves the importance of operative data and it allows a wider accounting. It can track the decisions that produced financial impacts in the production. Furthermore, PI System allows to adjust the production rate with changes in the market's demand and build a strategic planification based on operative data historial.

Data organization through a global context layer democratizes vualuable operative data to create coherency araound integrated business KPIs, allowing performance comparations and boost regular processes.

Data consolidation offers the opportunity to identify functional gaps, Low efficiency or outdated legacy systems that may cause some vulnerabilities. It also eliminates local solutions that require unique or important resources, to sustain or update in due time.
