Industrial Edge Platform: Simulated Process Automation Environment

Highly productive and reliable, operational technology (OT) has historically sacrificed flexibility for the sake of productivity. Market leaders need to embrace collaboration with new functionality and proactively strengthen and speed up operations, with the flexibility and intelligence to scale based on demand. Schneider Electric, Intel, and Red Hat lead the way in offering a modern, joint approach to building and operating distributed control systems (DCSs).  Visit our booth throughout the conference exhibition to see the demo in action.

Open and inclusive for industrial manufacturing: A partner panel discussion

Date: Tuesday, Feb 6

Time: 7-8:15 AM

Location: Crystal Ballroom D

For decades, companies have been restrained by vendor-specific hardware. Today, companies are unlocking their potential through software-centric, open automation.

But a larger question remains: what does open really facilitate?

Attend this partner panel with leaders from Intel, STAHL, RedHat, and Phoenix Contact as we discuss the potential that existing industrial systems have by enabling multivendor, open architectures.

We will explore practical examples of how embracing inclusive, software-defined transformation drives efficiency and sustainability. We will discuss operator challenges when transitioning systems,and what opportunities the future holds for companies ready to disrupt.
