Start Date:5/23/2017

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


Are you ready to leverage the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)? Do you think that you are doing a decent job at gathering data?

You might be, but gaps exist at most sites. The digital thread involves capturing data across systems, through lifecycles, and then leveraging with analytics. It’s a seamless digital connection.

Join us during this free webinar on enabling the foundation for the Industrial Internet of Things using HMI/SCADA and MES. You’ll learn proven tips and strategies to:


  • Overcome common obstacles in connectivity and interoperability

  • Bridge functional siloes, starting from the machine and operator through your supply chain

  • Pinpoint data already collected but being used in isolated ways

  • Identify your weakest links in the digital thread – is it the operator?

  • View the future of HMI/SCADA and MES in an Edge-to-Cloud world

  • Achieve a seamless digital connection and leverage HMI/SCADA and MES to enable IIoT business outcomes such as less unscheduled downtime, improved productivity, and higher quality

Read a blog by featured speaker Craig Resnick on how HMI/SCADA and MES software solutions continue to evolve to meet the needs of end users and OEMs as they continue their journey towards the IIoT.
