What you'll learn:

In today’s highly competitive and pandemic-impacted business environment, industrial companies must optimize efficiency, contain costs and pursue every profit potential. And they must do this under severe capital constraints, maximizing existing assets and resources. Data is a key resource from which to extract business-improving insights. However, analyst studies suggest that industrial companies typically are able to use only 20% of the data generated, which greatly limits their ability to apply data analytics to business improvement. This 90-minute virtual conference addresses how industrial producers can optimize operations, improve asset management, and find greater profit potential with industrial data analytics and artificial intelligence. Key: collect, contextualize and convert operational, engineering and information technology data into action.

Key Topics Covered

  • Obstacles to data utilization and how to overcome them
  • Purposes for processing data at the edge vs in the cloud
  • The value of Operations, Engineering and Information Technology data contextualization
