  1. Mask data / metadata before it's shared

    As a Data Steward of my company's data, I need to be able to mask the names of data such as attribute names, descriptions, UOMs, etc. before sharing with my partners SO THAT it's not easy for someone else to understand and reverse engineer our process through the data. We want to protect our IP.

    Our partner just needs to get the raw values and they need to know the typical range for the attribute but they don't need to know what it means.

  2. Hosted Cloud Data Store

    We don't have the resources or skills to setup, administer, and manage our own PI System. We would just like to be able to use a hosted system delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS).

  3. Drive Data Sharing from On-Premises Display

    Drive data sharing from a shared on premises PI Vision display.

    For example, selecting to share a display (or set of displays) externally would automatically copy all supporting data to OSIsoft Cloud Services. The display definition and data are automatically moved.

  4. Data Constraints: Limit Amount of History in Data Sharing

    Ability to define and constrain the scope of data shared. For example, limit the amount of data history shared with an external partner (ex: week of data, month of data, year of data, etc.). Or a specific time range. There should be no limits on when the time range can exist (i.e. able to share data from 5 years ago).

  9. Managed Tenants for our Customers

    We are a company providing connected services leveraging operational data to our customers.

    Enable us to provision OCS Tenants on behalf of our customers, and manage things like data ingress, stream configuration, data mapping, context, and others for our customer managed accounts SO THAT our customers can just consume our service (and they paid for us to do these types of tasks).

    We need a way to onboard our customers easily with their own OCS tenants SO THAT we can expand our business to all our potential customers, not just those that already have a relationship with OSIsoft.

    This work is planned as part of our Community & stream data sharing functionality in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS). It will likely come after we release our initial data sharing functionality.

  10. Offer Competively Priced Historian as a Service

    As a Systems Integrator, I want to have a way to offer a competitively priced historian as a service to customers we bid projects on SO THAT we have a competitive offering in the marketplace built on OSIsoft technology. Target is for low end of the market (under 5K tags).

  12. Community Data Sharing: Share Data with External Partners

    As a company that needs to share data with external business partners, I want to have a way to provide secure access to our company's data through the Cloud SO THAT we can share data with partners that don't have a PI System, without making external copies of the data, and having a more standard way of sharing data with our external partners.

    We have started development on Community Management features and Stream data sharing in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) to enable sharing of operational data across tenants.

    If you have an active use case where you are trying to share data with external business partners of yours and you interested in trying this out once we have reached a point in our development where this is possible, please let us know and we will add you to our list!

  13. Create an Internal Community for Sharing Data, Displays, and Collaborating Internally

    Create an Internal Community that includes members from the same company or organization (Account). No data or content is shared with external organizations.

    ===
    Example Use Cases:
    * Collaboration around assets (Pump Experts)
    * Collaboration around a business goal (Reducing Downtime, Energy Usage, etc.)
    * Collaboration around a social goal (improving health by all company Fitbit users)

    ===

    NOTE: if you have example use cases, please add them to the comments of this idea!

  14. Shared Community Lead

    As a company that shares data with it's partners, I would like to invite another person from my partner's account to also be a Community Lead SO THAT they can add and manage users from their Account in the Community. Our community Lead will manage our users, our partner's community lead will manage their users.

    This idea is in contrast to the 'Single Community Lead' idea. https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/597811/suggestions/19121872

  15. Single Community Lead

    As a company that shares data with it's partners, I need to explicitly control who can invite users from other Accounts into my Community SO THAT I can control access. In this model, I will invite all external users into the Community rather than a model where another 'trusted' partner is also a Lead in a Community.

  16. Enterprise Cloud Data Store for Aggregating on premises PI Servers

    As an company that uses PI Systems across our enterprise, we need the ability to aggregate data across on premises PI Systems located at our sites.

    Today, we often use another "Enterprise" level PI Server to perform this aggregation and 'corporate view'. but in the future, we would like to be able to aggregate this data in a cloud based Software as a Service (SaaS) offering hosted by OSIsoft.

    This would enable customers to largely replace their central/corporate PI Servers with OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS).

  17. Peer Community for Collaborating around Shared Interests or Goals

    The ability to create a Community for sharing data, displays, other artifacts, and collaborate among many Peers (or potentially competitors) that share a common interest or goal.

    Some Assumptions about 'Peer Communities':
    * A peer community could potentially include many different companies/organizations (tens to hundreds?) ... more than 2.

    * The data shared into these communities from any 1 company might be very limited in nature. (narrow scope)
    * Does the data need to be anonymized before being shared into the community?
    * Are their potentially members of a peer community that don't own any data but help analyze or…

  18. Ensure Data Segregation for Data Sharing - Multi-tenant System

    As a service provider, I need to ensure that our customers can NEVER see another customer's data or even meta-data (that they exist) SO THAT customers can't see any information about their competitors and who we work with.

    As a industrial operating company that shares data with partners and service providers, I need to ensure that our data is only accessible to those that we share with SO THAT we can ensure our data and company's intellectual property (IP) is safe and secure.

    We have started development on Community Management features and Stream data sharing in OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS) to enable sharing of operational data across tenants.

    As part of the Community creation workflow, we are working on a way that Communities are formed without exposing other customer accounts/tenants in the process.

    Additionally, Namespaces can now be used to segregate customer data (if you’re providing a service to those customers), or the data can be stored in their own OCS tenant/account and then shared via Community data sharing functionality (when it becomes available).

  19. Community Exit Strategy

    As a Community Lead, I need to stop sharing data with a partner/vendor/service provider that is providing services to me but we decide to terminate the relationship (perhaps choose a different service provider).

    In this situation, we would like to still retain access to the history of the community because you might need to determine what the vendor was doing with your equipment back in history.

    NOTE: Please use the comments section for this idea to help document your requirements and use cases when a sharing relationship or contract is terminated.

    We need to do more customer research on what the expectations are when a Community is dissolved (perhaps the business relationship has gone another direction) … what happens to the old Community information? what stays around and is accessible vs not anymore?

  20. Short Term / Temporary Community

    As a Community Lead, I need be able to support temporary Communities by deactivating a Community after a project is completed (in a couple of months) SO THAT we can protect our data that they no longer need access to.

    Example Use Case: CompanyA contracts an OEM to manufacture custom equipment for their manufacturing process. While the OEM is building and testing the equipment, the CompanyA wants access to the data to support design and testing efforts at the OEM site. This way, CompanyA's engineers can monitor and provide input into the development and qualification process while working remotely. Once…
