7 Must Attend Sessions at Industry of Things World USA 2017

7 Must-Attend Sessions at the Industry of Things World USA 2017

  1. Panel discussion: IoT security is both an enterprise and product issue – what you need to do to secure both

About the Speakers

Rebecca R. Taylor (LinkedIn) is the Senior Vice President for the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS).

Adam Golodner (LinkedIn) is a partner at Kaye Scholer LLP, and leads their Global Cybersecurity & Privacy Group.

Marc Schneider (LinkedIn) is Principal Cyber Security Engineer at MITRE.

Key Themes, Or Why You Should Attend

This session will focus on IoT Security. The connected enterprise stores its data on the internet, where it runs the risk of being accessed by third parties. The internet poses the additional threat of leaving systems vulnerable to hacking or being infected by malware.

What This Means

A security breach could help outsiders gain access to sensitive data, and control systems within the plant network or infect them with ransomware. It is, therefore, the responsibility of both IoT service providers and clients to identify blind spots and put additional security measures in place.

  1. The ABCs of Industrial Internet of Things: what does it take to succeed in Industrial IoT

About the Speakers

Rahul Garg (LinkedIn, Twitter) leads the IoT & Analytics Commercial Business at Microsoft US.

Doug Bulla (LinkedIn) is the Vice President of Business Development for mcaConnect.

John Biegel (LinkedIn, Twitter) is the Vice President of Global Operations and Product Engineering IT at Dell.

Key Themes, Or Why You Should Attend

Industrial IoT implementations gather large volumes of data from devices in real time, and enable machines to communicate with each other as well as with external systems. To succeed in industrial IoT, service providers need to identify both the problems faced by such networks as well as the barriers to successful implementation.

What This Means

The main purpose of an industrial IoT implementation is to glean valuable and actionable insight from the otherwise underutilized big data that enterprises collect from their systems. This, combined with the insight that’s already at the disposal of enterprises, allows for better business decision making and process optimization.

  1. Predictive maintenance: How to prevent asset failure, detect quality issues and improve operational processes

About the Speaker

Evandro Silva (LinkedIn) is Manager for Connected Vehicle Services at Volvo Group Trucks in North America.

Key Themes, Or Why You Should Attend

In a Smart Enterprise, the condition of machines is continuously monitored to ensure they operate within a desired efficiency range. An industrial IoT setup also helps anticipate and prevent downtime.

What This Means

The enterprise saves precious resources and time while maintaining manufacturing throughput within an optimal range. Maintenance is triggered by specific events, — depending on how often a machine is used, its operating life, its output, etc. — instead of following a fixed schedule or being triggered by machine failure.

  1. World Cafe Roundtable: 62 plants, 20k things across 9 industries: Doing IoT the right way !

About the Speakers

Gary Wilson (LinkedIn) is a member of the advisory board at Altizon.

David Marriott (LinkedIn) is Director of IoT at Spectra Symbol.

Amol Mate (LinkedIn, Twitter) is the Vice President of the Industrial Business Unit at Altizon.

Key Themes, Or Why You Should Attend

You want to attend this session as David of Spectra Symbol presents impressive stats around how IoT has changed Oil and Gas industry and how IoT-enabled remote asset management is changing everything. From connecting 20K+ things connected across 62 plants, Gary shares practical challenges, implementations, and outcomes. He discusses strategies for Doing IoT the Right way!

What This Means

IoT is hear and now. Learn from the customer and experts discussion how to embark on IoT journey at your plant, what to expect and how to prepare your workforce for this technology adoption. Walk away with clear strategies and understanding on how to be better prepared for a successful Digital (IoT) transformation.

  1. Paving the way to the Industrial Internet of Things

About the Speaker

Gary Hayslip (LinkedIn, Twitter) is Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for the City of San Diego, and, among other things, oversees the city’s cyber security strategy.

Key Themes, Or Why You Should Attend

The 4th Industrial Revolution is already here, revolutionizing industrial processes and turning raw machine data into actionable insight. Attend this session to gain an industry-wide perspective on the applications of IoT, as well as its future scope and the challenges it faces.

What This Means

The adoption of the internet to communicate with and manage devices has given birth to new practices and technologies. Businesses are increasingly turning towards these solutions to optimize their processes and gain competitive edge.

  1. Smart Manufacturing: The Business of Real Time Data and Manufacturing Intelligence

About the Speaker

Jim Davis (LinkedIn) is Vice Provost, IT and Chief Academic Technology Officer at UCLA.

Key Themes, Or Why You Should Attend

Manufacturing can benefit immensely from automating operational processes and gathering machine data in real time.

What This Means

Smart manufacturing entails ensuring device connectivity and management, and capturing and analyzing data in real time. It employs machine learning both to process events (such as machine failure or bottleneck) as well as predict them in advance.

  1. Becoming the Factory of the Future: How to prepare now for the Industrial Internet of Things

About the Speaker

Frithjof Netzer (LinkedIn) is Senior Vice President at BASF, where he leads the BASF 4.0 project.

Key Themes, Or Why You Should Attend

The internet is a popular, pervasive medium of communication. The idea of using it to assist industrial processes, however, is still in its nascent stage and faces both cultural and technological challenges.

What This Means

Both manufacturers and IoT service providers need to implement better and more effective IoT solutions so that firms can produce more effectively and compete better.
