Why Open Source Works for Industrial IoT



The industrial world has a long history of modernizing process controls to keep production running efficiently and safely while minimizing downtime. Yet many are locked in established data historians 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 one software vendor.

Join this webcast with Chris Churilo of InfluxData as she breaks the old stigma that open source was the cheap alternative to proprietary software. In this webcast we will examine what existing solutions lack and review a few open source projects that should be considered for future success for operators.

Learning objectives:

  • Explore the value of time series data in monitoring sensors, machines, and plants
  • Review some examples of open source software that are fulfilling the promise of Industry 4.0
  • Examine how some companies are using open source in their production-ready environments today
