  1. Support different data retention via OCS

    Some customers need to store (retain) some, but not all, data for extended periods of time. For example, there can be a need to store any data used in regulatory reports for 5-7 years. Going forward, could OCS be an option for collecting/aggregating/storing these data?

  3. Store pre-computed averages to accelerate data scrubbing operations in a UI tool

    As a user that is looking to visually identify past behaviors in long sequence ranges, I would like to be able to scroll backward, forward, and zoom in quickly SO THAT I can isolate the appropriate behavior rapidly. Other back-end systems and UI tools support pre-computed totalizations (especially averages) to help users get a better trending / analytical experience. If I record 1Hz data, I probably don’t need to initially see every data point when they trend 6 months of data… so, having those always available would be nice (1M, 60M, 12h, 24h, 5d, 7d, 2wk, 4wk, 6mo, 1y).

  7. Deployment of OCS onto Amazon Web Services (AWS)

    Deployment of OSIsoft Cloud Services into Amazon Web Services (AWS) rather than Microsoft Azure.

    Note that the hosting platform for OCS shouldn’t matter since the interface to our services are available via public REST APIs.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
