Schneider Electric will be participating in the upcoming Industrial Internet Summit, taking place from 15–16 February in Sydney. During the summit, a number of industry-leading professionals, including from Schneider Electric, will be speaking about how IoT disruption is continuing to transform industries and organisations.

Brad Yager, director process automation offer & BD Pacific, will be delivering the case study ‘Redefining IoT with innovation at every level’. In his presentation, Yager will discuss how a sustainable future must become radically more efficient with the way we use energy.

Yager will share how the IoT and the convergence of operational technology and information technology are enabling companies to achieve this challenge. He’ll provide detail on several examples where this has already been realised through an innovation-at-every-level approach — from connected products to edge control and from services to software, both on premise and in the cloud.

Alison Koh, software marketing manager, will be presenting a deep-dive session on ‘Enterprise asset performance management’. During her session, Koh will discuss how enterprises can remain competitive in today’s market. She will share how enterprises can innovate at every level — from sensor and edge control to analytics — to gain actionable insights. She’ll delve into how the true value of IoT for an efficient, competitive organisation is in the execution of ‘visualise, analyse and take action’. She’ll also discuss the tools available from Schneider Electric that enable this to happen.

Peter Clissold, senior cyber security consultant, will be involved in a panel discussion around ‘Establishing trust and security to unlock the full potential of the industrial internet’.

Shane Ayerst, business development manager, will be moderating a roundtable on ‘Generating business value with data-driven IoT solutions’.

Manjush Mathew, solutions BDM for New South Wales, will be moderating a roundtable on ‘Connected enterprises — who’s really in charge of protecting your assets and people?’
