Visual KPI for AF Delivers Web-based Access and Visualization of Operations Data
Transpara Corporation, a leading provider of operations intelligence software, today announced Visual KPI for AF, the first solution to provide web-based access to and visualization of OSIsoft AF 2.0 data. Visual KPI for AF is a web-based add-on to OSIsoft’s AF, OSIsoft’s server-based modeling tool that enables an organization to define a consistent representation of its assets, providing attributes and context for PI System and non-PI System data. With Visual KPI for AF, users get immediate, web-based access to their AF data, and can also link any AF Element to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), Scorecards and Views in Visual KPI.
“Visual KPI for AF provides a web-based view for AF 2.0 with zero configuration or programming,” said Michael Saucier, CEO of Transpara. “OSIsoft’s AF brings order, structure and models to many kinds of data, and Visual KPI for AF delivers all of this to users via the web. By adding a visual component to the monitoring, aggregation and analysis of AF data, Transpara is helping customers maximize their OSIsoft investment, extending the power of AF in asset-intensive vertical industries, as well as data center management.”
Visual KPI for AF integrates with Transpara’s flagship product, Visual KPI, the only composite KPI software that delivers on-demand operations data from multiple data sources to any desktop or mobile browser. This integration enables AF users to easily navigate, view and analyze data and KPIs across their system hierarchy without any programming.
