DANVILLE, Calif., Oct. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Wireless Glue Networks, Inc., a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform leader, and OSIsoft, a developer of application software for real-time data infrastructure solutions, including the PI System, announced today they have entered into a strategic partnership to better enable the commercial and industrial (C&I) market to monetize the benefits of real-time connectivity to sensors and systems – e.g., predictive and preventive maintenance, energy management, and building/factory automation.

The OSIsoft-Wireless Glue Networks partnership will focus on extracting data from end devices in real-time and feeding that data into the PI system for analysis, predictive maintenance, and other solutions. The data flow between OSIsoft's PI system and Wireless Glue's SmartEdge Solution software, which will exist on-premise, will be bi-directional and allow for both real-time monitoring and control of the devices.

"We believe this partnership with OSIsoft will enable C&I customers to drive significant operational benefits by enabling more effective and efficient management and operation of physical assets and environments," said Rameet Kohli, Vice President of Business Development at Wireless Glue. "Working together with OSIsoft enables us to provide immediate operational improvements and better ROI."

"OSIsoft is excited to combine its PI System's collection, analysis, and visualization capabilities with Wireless Glue's real-time data and edge intelligence," said Peter Bentley, who leads Strategic IoT Initiatives & Global Channel Development at OSIsoft.

The two companies will begin rolling out pilots together this year and will be working with partners such as Dell to implement various IoT solutions.

"OSIsoft and Wireless Glue Networks provide Dell with domain expertise and applications that complement our IoT gateways and security and manageability solutions that IT trusts," said Jason Shepherd, Director, IoT Strategy and Partnerships, Dell. "Combined, our technologies enable customers to securely ingest, monitor and control thousands of end-points in real-time. Our solutions provide structure and meaning for the vast amounts of data through analytics which is critical to implementing successful IoT solutions."
