  4. Make more videos about the theoretical side of PI

    It's great to see videos about statistical quality control and the swinging door algorithm. I think that having more videos of this nature will really help PI administrators understand PI's capabilities rather than just its features.

    This is also a chance for OSIsoft to explain some of their design decisions, especially those that naïvely seem like bad idea but actually have sound reasoning behind them.

    Lastly, the process of making these videos will likely reveal insights and improvements, since it forces an in-depth look at PI and a justification for its design.

    I will post video ideas in the comments.

  6. Higher Quality Videos

    Our videos are mostly shot in poor lighting. Although exported to 720p, the footage looks like 480p with 24fps. Please consider using better lighting and a higher quality camera.
    Also, please white balance and lightening the footage in a video editor during post production.

  8. Walk through the execution of the PI Connector For UFL's INI files

    The PI Connector For UFL does not have a graphical INI file editor, so customers must either use the one from the PI Interface For UFL or write the code manually. In the user guide, there are text descriptions of how to write the code and how it is executed, but it can be difficult to visualize, and customers end up either wasting a lot of time learning the language or using the PI Interface For UFL instead.

    Please make a video that walks through the execution and flow of control of the INI files, highlighting line-by-line which part of…

  9. Make viral advertisement videos

    Problem

    OSIsoft's advertisement videos so far are vague and boring. They simply reiterate the ideas of easily accessing your data from a central location and saving lots of time and money. They throw some statistics and success stories in your face, and then say that the PI system is responsible. This is not enough to make someone want to buy PI. There is not enough information on how PI helps achieve success. The PI system is barely shown off, and the viewer is left scratching their head, not quite seeing how the pieces fit together.

    In addition to the poor…

  10. Make some videos about OSIsoft Cloud Services

    OSIsoft has currently not posted any videos about OSIsoft Cloud Services. The videos on YouTube that do cover OSIsoft Cloud Services were not posted by OSIsoft.

    Some topics to cover could include what it is, how to use it, what problems it solves, why even a small business might want to use it, how it differs from PI Cloud Connect, etc. This would not only be helpful for current users, but it would also help advertise OSIsoft Cloud Services and attract more customers.

    I feel that some customers are in the same boat as me. They know that the cloud…
