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.

Join Chris and Ryan to:

  • Employ today’s increasingly powerful communication standards and translation tools to pull together the data needed to provide real-time visibility into equipment performance
  • Learn ways to build a digitally driven foundation for coordinated and optimized production
  • Align your IT and OT teams and techniques to move from islands of OT to true operational transparency

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.

Join Jolene and James to:

  • Explore modern methods to optimizing a wide range of industrial processes
  • Discuss the pitfalls and opportunities afforded by modern analytical methods
  • Get started—strategically—with data analytics to empower your digital transformation
