Why Open Source Works for Industrial IoT
Webinar Date: 2020-02-12 11:00:00 (Pacific Time)
The industrial world has a long history of modernizing their process controls in order to keep production running efficiently and safely while minimizing downtime. Yet many are locked in established data historian solutions that are costly and lack the methods needed to provide innovation and interoperability. In contrast, open source software — which is built on the foundation of community — inherently provides diverse design perspectives not available from a single software vendor.
Join this webinar with Chris Churilo of InfluxData as she breaks the old stigma that open source was the cheap alternative to proprietary software. In this webinar we will examine what the existing solutions lack and review a few open source projects that should be considered for future success for operators.
During this webinar you will learn:
- The value of time series data in monitoring your sensors, machines, and plants
- Some examples of open source software that are fulfilling the promise of Industry 4.0
- How some companies are using open source in their production-ready environments today
