IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) Webcast Series

Upcoming Webcasts:

The The 2017 Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Webcast Series

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a transformational strategy that is revolutionizing manufacturing operations across the world. CFE Media publications take an in-depth look at IIoT-related issues, strategies, and opportunities. Building on the past IIoT Webcasts, the 2017 four-part series will examine concepts, technologies, applications and case uses for IIoT and of interest to engineers, managers, and technicians across the production industries.

Webcast One: Get your head into the cloud 
Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT
One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Automation technologies are converging with information technologies. To handle growing volumes of data generated by IIoT-enabled devices, companies will need powerful data processing capability. Cloud-based environments transform how process-automation projects are engineered and instantiated, replacing client/server. This Webcast focuses on how emergent IIoT technologies change the way process and automation engineers execute projects and sustain productivity in today’s, and tomorrow’s, cyber-physical world. Click here to register.

Webcast Two: Take sensing and control to the edge 
Thursday, June 8, 2017 
at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT
One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Put computing power at the process edge, where measurements happen, and aggregate the results in the cloud. With ubiquitous, lowcost sensing, you can condition-monitor not just high-priced machines and equipment, but also plant substructures like steam traps and vents. Connected assets and rich data do more than give a hint of impending failure. It’s a way to better understand how a process works, and thereby optimize its results. This Webcast will focus on how better sensing leads to big data, and how in future, process control will be found—at the process. Click here to register.

Webcast Three: IIoT transforms predictive maintenance 
Thursday, August 24, 2017
 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT 
One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Manufacturers exploiting the latest IIoT industrial-connectivity and analytics advances are melding operations and maintenance data to spot trends that lead managers to contextualized, actionable insights.  At the same time, they are building the plant-floor technology infrastructure of the future. Connecting complex machinery and equipment to operations and enterprise systems enables machine learning, predictive maintenance and secure monitor and alarm. IIoT addresses significant integration challenges posed by the unique data types generated by the many kinds of machinery and equipment found in plant environments, from CNC machines to robotics. Click here to register.

Webcast Four: How IIoT helps cybersecurity efforts 
Thursday, October 19, 2017
 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET/7 p.m. GMT
One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Cybersecurity is a threat to enterprises large and small, at risk of being attacked from unexpected sources both inside and outside the enterprise. IIoT can reduce the cybersecurity risks inherent in legacy automation, instrumentation, equipment, and devices. The Industrial Internet Consortium has released a technical report for an industrial Internet security framework. The intent is to give all interested parties, including device makers, application developers, systems integrators and executives the guidance needed to deploy IIoT systems with best practices built in. The report will be the starting point for this Webcast presentation and discussion. Click here to register.

Industrial Internet of Things Webcast Series 2016, Part Two: Information Management for IIoT

Now available for viewing on-demand.
Original Air Date: Thursday, June 2, 2016 
One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Modern manufacturing plants collect enormous amounts of information each day. The difficult part has been managing that information flow, and more importantly, making better use of that information flow to affect change within the plant. The promise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the ability to use modern data management and storage tools to deliver actionable data to workers at all levels of the plant when they need it.

How can that be accomplished? That question will be answered as Control Engineering, Oil & Gas Engineering and Plant Engineering present the second of four Webcasts in 2016 on IIoT.

Industrial Internet of Things Webcast Series 2016, Part One: Effective Change Management

Now available for viewing on-demand.
Original Air Date: Thursday, March 31, 2016
One (1) Certified Professional Development Hour (PDH) available for all attendees.

Join Control Engineering, Oil & Gas Engineering and Plant Engineering for part one of the 2016 IIoT Webcast Series: Effective Change Management. This webcast will present a glimpse of the IIoT disruption by exploring leading applications. These use cases highlight disruptive changes common across industries. It will review the role of the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), the rapidly-growing alliance of over 200 companies that form ground zero of the IIoT ecosystem. Finally, it will overview the IIC architecture, early standards, and testbed programs.
