We have been gathering use cases and information about OPC UA Server functionality as it pertains to OSIsoft products.
There are a number of different requirements to consider, and as such we’re changing the status back to “UNDER REVIEW / RESEARCHING” to more accurately reflect the current status of the work.
At this time, we are not committing to bringing this capability to market.
We will update this thread if the status changes.

Advanced analytics layers adding additional AI/ML value to PI data require access to and from the PI System. An OPC UA server from PI to advanced analytics layers increases the value of the PI System to our/your customers. Returning that enhanced data as insights to the PI System increases the value that OSIsoft provides to its customers by orders of magnitude.
Presently, third party providers are incentivized to bypass OSIsoft PI Systems and provide their own data lakes and historization because of the technical/cost challenges of data sharing from PI, thus separating both the data and insights from PI. Further, these systems bypass the PI System user interfaces e.g. PI Vision) and provide insights through their own dashboards or third party BI tools.
An OPC UA server would enable OSIsoft to retain a role in the future of predictive production control while increasing the value of OSIsoft's customers' PI Systems.crickwaters supported this idea ·
