New thin-client applications connect people, teams


San Francisco and San Leandro, CAOSIsoft has released new RtWebParts to deliver greater client-side functionality in viewing and managing operational data, such as vertical trends, ad hoc SVG, direct export to Microsoft Excel, and support for XY plotting. The company announced the product set—which delivers flexibility for using, analyzing, and viewing real-time information within a browser-based environment—at its user conference held last week in San Francisco.

Users can display real-time data through thin-client applications within a Web browser and manipulate the raw data to create a view that suits their needs. For example, an operator in a remote location can use RtWebParts to identify, diagnose, and mediate a problem, either by gathering information in a shared knowledge base or by working with a virtual team. Although OSIsoft’s PI System data historian has been available for more than 25 years to monitor assets and operations, the information gathered is increasingly raw and/or transformed data from disparate systems that needs more manipulation, the company says.

“The greatest challenge to making the right decisions is knowing what to put into your KPIs (key process indicators) and how to view that information, which each may require expressing data in several different ways,” said Gregg Le Blanc, director of product marketing for OSIsoft. The features of RtWebParts are reportedly well suited to critical infrastructures, such as water management facilities.
