Integrate Python into PI System Explorer
As a user I would like to integrate python directly into AF so that I can have the open source capabilities of Python directly available to me as oppose to having OSISoft develop many of the options that Python already offers. This would allow for Python scripts to be ran directly in the AF structure so that outputs of models such as Machine learning can be written to a pi tag directly. This would also allow for greater data manipulation by utilizing pandas and even API Get requests to pull in data from other APIs to bundle time series data together. This would promote OSISofts AF platform directly to data scientist and data engineers.
Many companies that have analytical platforms like AF such as Alteryx, Rapidminer, h2o.ai, etc... have Python and R integration. It would be providing the very same thing into AF.
This will open a world of capability to this platform
