Friday, Dec 04, 2015

Keith D. Nosbusch, chairman and CEO of Rockwell Automation, will address how scalable industrial Internet of Things (IoT) technologies enhance The Connected Enterprise, a transformational vision for higher productivity, sustainability and global competitiveness.

Nosbusch will deliver a keynote presentation at the third annual Internet of Things World Forum 2015 hosted by Cisco from Dec. 6-8 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The forum attracts key stakeholders and innovators in business, government, and academia who are driving adoption of the Internet of Things worldwide.

“The Connected Enterprise will drive more change in industrial automation in the next 10 years than we’ve seen in the past 50,” said Keith D. Nosbusch, chairman and CEO, Rockwell Automation. “This transformation creates tremendous opportunities for those who take advantage of it, and great risks for those unprepared for a strategic response.”

Nosbusch will explain how it is now possible to transform high volumes of real-time data from industrial operations into actionable insights that accelerate optimization of plants and supply networks. “A scalable implementation of industrial IoT technologies enhances this transformation using smart, connected assets and real-time analytics that function as an important part of an integrated control and information system,” said Nosbusch.

Nosbusch’s keynote will highlight applications of industrial IoT technologies in a wide spectrum of industries such as oil and gas and consumer packaged goods. A high performance architecture, built upon secure IP-based networks and complemented with contemporary technologies such as mobility, data analytics and cloud computing, is essential for industrial IoT, and also makes it possible to achieve seamless convergence between OT systems and enterprise IT systems.
