The idea of connecting control systems to enterprise systems has been widely discussed for more than two decades, with significant momentum building up recently for company-wide rollouts of such linkages. But just as these shop-floor-to-top-floor connections were getting underway in significant numbers, the Internet of Things emerged on the scene and has been garnering the lion’s share of industry attention.
This webcast will explore the current status of controls-to-enterprise connections across industry to determine what, if any, effect the Internet of Things is having on this long-sought-after industry objective.
Topics to be addressed include:
- The level of controls-to-enterprise implementations ongoing in industry today;
- Current hardware and software challenges behind these system integrations;
- The impact of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and the Internet of Things on shop-floor-to-top-floor integration initiatives; and
- How to view your own control-to-enterprise plans in light of new industrial technology trends.
