8:00am - 9:00am: Breakfast/Registration
9:00am - 9:30am: Welcome: State of the Industry
Speaker: Don Pearson, Chief Strategy Officer, Inductive Automation
There’s a new architecture revolutionizing the way large enterprises — from manufacturers to oil and gas — are connecting and analyzing their data. Discover how migrating from a typical poll-response, round-robin topology to a bandwidth-efficient publish/subscribe system using MQTT can decrease latency and help get critical data and analysis to your entire enterprise instantly.
9:30am - 10:15am: Digital Transformation - It’s all about Tools on Platforms, not Coding on Operating Systems
Speaker: Arlen Nipper, President, Cirrus Link Solutions
“We live in a Brown Field world!”…. Every customer's journey to Industry 4.0 will require a carefully thought out migration strategy that has to embrace existing brownfield equipment and infrastructures. This strategy will definitely require more that just the existing notion of simply writing code on Cloud/Edge/Fog infrastructures. It will require mature platforms with tools that are already focused on OT existing infrastructures and devices. Not taking this into consideration for an overall Digital Transformation strategy, can, and will be, disastrous.
This presentation will cover how the Ignition Platform can provide the tools necessary for a successful Digital Transformation.
