Virtual Conference sponsored by InfluxData

December 4th, 2019

11:00 AM until 12:00 PM ET

What you'll learn:

The industrial world has a long history of modernizing their process controls in order to keep production running efficiently and safely while minimizing downtime. Yet many are locked in established data historian solutions that are costly and lack the methods needed to provide innovation and interoperability. In contrast, open source software — which is built on the foundation of community — inherently provides diverse design perspectives not available from a single software vendor.

In this webinar our speakers will examine what the existing solutions lack and review a few open source projects that should be considered for future success for operators.
