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 on Thursday, June 2 at 2 p.m. EST as Control Engineering, Oil & Gas Engineering and Plant Engineering present the second of four Webcasts in 2016 on IIoT. The June 2 Webcast, Information Management for IIoT, will be presented by Sal Spada, research director for ARC Advisory Group.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the current state of IIoT technology and trends.
  2. Learn about the ways modern data management influences IIoT adoption.
  3. Learn about the ways data storage influences IIoT adoption.
  4. Learn how manufacturers are currently utilizing IIoT technology to affect change in their operation.
