Brian Geisel, CEO, Geisel Software, Inc.
Today, it seems everyone is talking about security in the IoT. As the diversity and number of IoT devices continue to increase, the threats to IoT systems are changing and growing even faster. For security to be effective, you're going to need real, practical end-to-end solutions to protect your devices and network. In this session, the presenter will discuss common security pitfalls in the Internet of Things and how to protect your entire IoT environment from end-to-end. Specifically the presentation will focus on security myths: understanding the risks, how to protect your IoT network against infiltration, defending your web services in the cloud, architecting "security from the start", and keeping the fleet safe, now and forever.
Antony Coufal, Chief Technical Officer, IIoT-Oxys Corp.
Today, collecting and monitoring sensor data is no longer enough to have highly efficient operations or meet advanced methodologies like Industry 4.0. To achieve these goals, larger and more specific data must be collected and analyzed with advanced methods like Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Across all industries, Edge 2.0 is starting to provide actionable, mission critical insights including Failure Predictors, Intelligent Maintenance, Process Optimization, and Logistical Planning to name a few. And, looking forward, we expect to see more development of domain and process-specific AI, refinement of highly efficient algorithms and the introduction of faster purpose-specific hardware. This will result in more of a shift towards data collection and analysis on the edge as well as more in-depth insights generated faster. Attend this session to hear about the current and future state of ML and AI.
Wendy MacNaughton, Sr. Software Engineer, Varian Medical Systems
Varian Medical Systems is a long time Axeda customer who invested in ThingWorx. However, due to existing Axeda edge implementations, worldwide deployment over the years, and existing Axeda capabilities and features used in our everyday service support organization, switching to ThingWorx completely faces a lot of challenges. So, the company decided to continue using Axeda platform and adapt ThingWorx in different phases. The company has successfully implemented the first phase of the adaption. This phase utilizes data from Axeda agents to build app in ThingWorx and integrate ThingWorx with Salesforce platforms for a unified case/dispatch management workflow to enhance the value of its remote service solution. The solution also provides right information at the right time with one stop shopping user experience for service support, which allows the company to ensure higher levels of customer service and satisfaction. This session focuses in why the adoption path was chosen and how it’s implemented.
