The Power of Digital Twins in Industrial IoT - January 30th, 2019

a virtual conference sponsored by ABB & ARC Advisory

The Power of Digital Twins in Industrial IoT

Simulation has been used in many years in the process industry, but now the industry is taking this to a higher level. From being used for smaller parts of the plant and operator training, now more and more of the plant can be simulated as a digital twin following the plant life cycle for improved safety and productivity. When the simulator becomes the control system master, the plant can reduce risk for unplanned shutdowns and blackouts. According to Gartner, 75% of organisations implementing IoT technology already use digital twins as part of their system, or are planning to do so within a year...

World Expo 2020 site: A blueprint for future smart cities

Cities are under pressure. More than two-thirds of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2050. This is creating a wide range of challenges, such as the poor quality of air in Los Angeles, inefficient water systems in Buenos Aires, and gridlock on roads from London to Mumbai. Get insights on how to address these issues by intelligently utilizing data. All cities are creating data; they just aren’t yet gathering, analyzing, and using the information effectively. In the context of the World Expo project, you will learn how using IoT technologies to turn data into smart data can make cities better for society and the environment...

Transforming Operations: How IIoT Creates Real-Time Visibility for Manufacturing, April 23, 2019 

a virtual conference sponsored by PTC

Virtual Conference

Creating real-time visibility in operations is about delivering the right information at the right time to the right person. In today’s factories, visibility is often limited because of disparate IT and OT systems, reports based on data from last week, and static, paper-based processes. Industrial IoT has the power to transform visibility in operations by breaking down these silos and delivering information in real-time with role-based applications.
