Automation user panelists explain “why we aren't doing IIoT -- and what you need to do to get us interested.”

Wednesday, May 23
3:55 - 4:35 pm

Everyone is talking about IIoT, so why aren’t they doing it?  This panel discussion with automation users is a reality check.

Learn firsthand the obstacles facing corporate IT/OT architects, and what manufacturers need from automation suppliers to accelerate adoption.

You’ll hear it all, from the security conundrum, to the IT/OT cultural barrier, from interoperability prerequisites like OPC UA TSN and PackML OPC UA, to strategic business imperatives in an era of operational priorities.

Moderator: Sari Germanos, B&R Industrial Automation and chair of the Industrial Internet Consortium’s Networking Task Group
Panelists: Paul Redwood, Church & Dwight; Tom Doney, Nestlé, and check back for others to be named
