Mainely Innovations is a concept I put together as a way to help users extend the AVEVA / OSIsoft PI ecosystem. I wanted to provide a way to enable open-source development of PI Vision custom symbols and scripts to help automate common, routine, or even the less routine tasks required of administration to the PI system.
There is a lot of flexibility in the capabilities in extending the base layer of the PI System. I see value in providing consumers of PI with common functionality. It is my belief that a lot of these common tasks, or basic PI Vision extensibility, can and should become open-source work because there is minimal value in paying for these services and the functionality should be usable by the consumers of the PI System.
I look forward to working building an open-source community around PI System development and extensibility.
