Rockwell Automation and OSIsoft extend digital data partnership

Rockwell Automation has extended its 15-year partnership with industrial data platform provider OSIsoft to “ensure continued” value for industrial manufacturing customers by enabling informed, data-driven decisions.

OSIsoft’s PI System is the market-leading operations data management platform for industrial organizations meeting next-generation demands for efficiency, reliability, security, sustainability, and resilience.

The agreement reinforces the companies’ joint commitment to drive outcome-based digital transformation solutions for customers across essential industries, including energy, mining, oil and gas, utilities, pharmaceuticals, transportation, and more.

Customers will benefit from this partnership in several ways. They can take advantage of Rockwell’s FactoryTalk Historian – which is powered by PI System and offered as part of the FactoryTalk OperationsSuite.

This software provides premier integration with FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, making it an essential data management component to execute on the customer’s overall digital transformation strategy.

As an example, one of Rockwell Automation’s large automotive customers experienced a nearly 80 percent- time savings by populating data into PTC ThingWorx using the FactoryTalk Historian ThingWorx connector.

Additionally, customers can optimize their operational investments with subscription-based business models.

Jason Wright, director of digital design and visualization applications at Rockwell Automation, says: “We are thrilled to expand our agreement with OSIsoft.This partnership helps us continue to provide industry-leading digital transformation solutions to the process, discrete, and hybrid manufacturing industries.

“In turn, this enables us to bring the connected enterprise to life for our customers. It’s a win-win.”

Bry Dillon, vice president of global business development for OSIsoft, says: “OSIsoft’s ongoing and very productive relationship with Rockwell Automation ensures our joint customers will continue to benefit from tighter integration of FactoryTalk Historian with Rockwell-centric controls and solutions.

“This enables a seamless integration of Rockwell’s solutions with OSIsoft’s edge-to-cloud portfolio.”

With this extended partnership, Rockwell Automation and OSIsoft are continuing to work together and provide greater value to their customer base.
