Business Challenge: Where PI Server is used?

Process-focused manufacturing companies produce copious amounts of data from a wide variety of sources throughout their operations. Usually data of plants like you have installed boilers, chillers etc. Plant managers and business executives need to have access to this information, in a meaningful and practical format, so they can direct operations toward best profitability and
productivity, and conduct effective business planning. Information aggregation from a multitude of sources manually or through custom programming can be costly and slow to deliver business value. E.g previously this process was manual. Plant manger manually collect the reading and then process. Important thing here is that process was manual i,e done by the humans.

Companies need to find a way to unify the streams of information from many sources into a single, comprehensive system that lets them accomplish their business goals as they manage their operation to achieve the highest levels of performance
and productivity.
