OSIsoft, Yokogawa partner

Jack Smith, Managing Editor

Yokogawa Electric Corp. and OSIsoft, Inc. announced that they have entered into a major partnership to better serve industrial automation markets throughout much of Asia.

Under terms of the multi-year agreement Yokogawa Electric will provide the enhanced Total ETS solutions to the industrial automation sector in Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan, and will cooperate with OSIsoft to enhance localization of RtPM Platform products in its core Japanese market. Both companies will continue to work closely to provide users with localized, first line technical support in Japan.

The partnership gives Yokogawa full use of technology for real-time operational decision making and enterprise management, and expands OSIsoft strategic access in the world’s fastest-growing automation markets. The expanded partnership between its parent company and OSIsoft enables Yokogawa Electric to provide OSIsoft Real-time Performance Management (RtPM) Platform technology at the core of its Total Enterprise Technology Solutions (ETS). Yokogawa Electric plans to use Total ETS to expand its business area beyond its traditional industrial automation applications into the arena for enterprise performance management. Yokogawa Information Systems Corp. has been an OSIsoft distributor since 1993.

As part of its marketing strategy for the new partnership, Yokogawa Electric is expanding development and support of its Total ETS offerings with an Intelligent Manufacturing Laboratory, an ETS Strategic Planning and Marketing group and an ETS Market Development effort. An RtPM/PI support group based in the Yokogawa Information Systems Corp. office will provide presales and technical support to Yokogawa customers, as well as training and quality assurance. To promote its strategy and support sales of the RtPM Platform and the OSIsoft PI System, Yokogawa is establishing regional headquarters in Shanghai and Tokyo. “Our agreement ensures that, for years to come, Yokogawa Electric will have a solid platform on which we can build the infrastructure for our Total ETS solutions,” said Kazuhiko Kimura, director and executive vice-president of industrial solutions, Yokogawa Electric Corp. “We plan to be an enthusiastic evangelist of the RtPM Platform. This is a win-win relationship for both partners.” "With this new partnership, we’re building upon a successful, long-term relationship with Yokogawa that goes back more than a decade,” said Patrick Kennedy, Ph. D., founder and CEO of OSIsoft, Inc. “We are two companies who bring complementary strengths to the market.”
