Join John Burton, CEO of UrsaLeo and Antonio Conati Barbaro, CEO of Alleantia to learn about an end to end IoT solution combining Alleantia’s gateway software with UrsaLeo’s 3D photorealistic digital twins. Alleantia supports more than 5,000 types of machinery commonly used in industrial environments and UrsaLeo supplies photorealistic 3D models of the machinery combined with real time sensor data. During this virtual conference, the speakers will showcase: – How fast access to IoT sensor data is key for delivering an industrial digital transformation in any sector. – How to overcome brownfield Operational Technologies (OT) integration difficulties for different devices, technologies, sensors, and machines. – How the market-leading UrsaLeo and Alleantia IoT integration solution makes machine information quickly available through thousands of ready to use ‘drivers’, a wide variety of connectors supporting innovative SaaS; and how to complete the architecture with strong cybersecurity features and O&M solutions for large scale IIoT deployments. John and Antonio

When it comes to developing safety-critical systems like industrial equipment, automotive systems and medical devices, avoiding certification is no longer an option, nor is it easy.  Just a decade ago 75 percent of companies embarking on certifying software against a safety standard, failed. As each certification project requires an immense investment of resources and engineering time, failure is expensive. Although the percentage of failed attempts has decreased, it’s not because projects are being better managed — it’s because once organizations see the number of obstacles on the road to certification, they simply decide not to start. Overcoming the odds against successful safety certification requires business leaders to drive a company-wide safety culture, and for development teams to adopt new processes as new safety standards become goal-based. In this one-hour virtual conference, Chris Hobbs, renowned author and functional safety expert will share practical advice for R&D leaders he’s gained from years of

In this session, Dominik Obermaier, HiveMQ CTO  & President of Cirrus Link, Arlen Nipper (co-inventor of MQTT) discuss the issues of transforming the software infrastructure of a manufacturing process to make it more efficient, flexible and interoperable. Dominik Obermaier will present the common architecture patterns modern factories are using for connecting OT systems with enterprise IT systems to enable factory digital transformation. He will highlight how MQTT can be used as the common protocol to connect OT and IT systems. Arlen Nipper will introduce the new Sparkplug specification that enables plug and play interoperability between IoT devices and IoT applications.

This virtual conference is a 90-minute online event discussing how to build a business and value case for digitalization in the energy industry.  An industry overview from Frost & Sullivan, implementation measures, use cases and an end-user experience/success story on digitalization from Marubeni will be covered, along with a Q&A session to ask the experts.

Many organizations are struggling to realize the benefits of IoT, mIoT, IIoT, or any other naming convention used in the marketplace today to describe the Internet of Things . Most IoT initiatives never see the light of day and never go beyond the Proof of Concept (PoC) phase. That is largely due to the fact that most organization take a fairly IT centric approach to IoT and even when they take a business approach to it, it is mostly focused on a very limited aspect of the business and does not provide a roadmap to overall business enablement. That in return affects adoption and sponsorship. So it is not uncommon to see multiple IoT initiatives being chartered in an organization without coordination between the various stakeholders, utilizing various and different platforms that in essence defeats the purpose of IoT. In this session Toyota and Hitachi Vantara will discuss the approach they
