Any operating system used in your production area is an asset—it has costs, benefits and risks just like your production equipment. Today's industrial operations environment demands a proactive and continuous program to keep those mission critical systems running.

In this presentation, Huck Bales and Alan Stanfill of system integration company Stone Technologies will discuss best practices for managing your operating system (OS) and present related, emerging technologies that will impact your plant floor. Bales and Stanfill will address Microsoft and Linux operating systems, provide OS migration examples, and explain how virtualization, containerization and software as a service can be used to manage OS obsolescence.
