You've heard of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0 and you probably have an idea about the positive impact that digital transformation will have on your business, but do you know how to start your own journey to the cloud?
In the last 6-12 months we have seen a rapid increase in the adoption of cloud technologies in the industrial space. For those who have already moved online, the return on investment is rapid: one solution is delivering over 50% energy savings in its first year.
Yet there are still many who are struggling with the change - why online? why now? And more importantly how do I start?
Contrary to what some may tell you, the move to the cloud is not 'all or nothing'. You can augment your existing systems quickly, securely and cost-effectively. You can unlock your data and turn it into a live information stream for decision-support. You can start today.
That's where San Antonio comes in. At this year's Innovation Summit: Software Conference you will learn "how" to augment your existing on-premise systems with cloud and mobile technology. You will discover "how" to take your data online using our frictionless 'start small, start incremental, start today' approach and the benefits you can realize with IIoT.
Plus you will hear about the exciting new developments to our online portfolio. Discover how you can manage your efficiency online, or leverage advanced analytics - all from the comfort of your mobile phone or tablet.
So, if you want answers to the following questions, then you need to be in San Antonio in October:
- Are you making the most of your critical industrial data?
- Do you have data stranded in your remote assets? Or data that is locked in your operational network?
- Do you need an accurate picture of past and present performance - from multiple data sources in real time - anywhere, anytime and on any device?
- Are you looking to remain competitive and futureproof your automation investment?
- Do you want to know how to protect your critical data against malicious attack?
- Are you keen to find out what our future roadmap is for solutions online?
With a range of interactive sessions and comprehensive exhibition, the Innovation Summit: Software Conference is the perfect opportunity to stop wondering, and start doing. Start your digital migration now. It is that simple.
