Presenter 1 & 2: Chris Misztur & Ryan Ripley
For many industrial organizations, an essential first step in enabling digital transformation is tapping into the isolated islands of plant-floor data that exist in legacy equipment and disparate systems that were never designed to communicate with one another.

Presenters 3 & 4: Jolene Baker & James Bronstein
The rise of more capable networks together with local and cloud-based storage computing power gave rise to the reams of “big” data that for many industrial organizations remain an untapped source of process intelligence. Yes, there are powerful algorithms available that can help identify patterns in all that data, but brute force statistics aren’t all that’s needed to draw meaningful conclusions.

A passionate advocate for manufacturing digitalization, Misztur and his team at Mr. IIoT help industrial organizations to fill the gap between IT and OT systems, so they can realize greater value from their capital equipment and processes. Key deliverables include the identification of waste and improvement opportunities through fact-finding, data collection, integration and analysis. Further, they work to reduce labor and quality costs by bridging IT, OT and enterprise systems and eliminating non-value-added work. Before founding Mr. IIoT, Misztur served as digital transformation manager for MacLean-Fogg, a manufacturer of fasteners and other components.
