If You Can't Measure It, You Can't Manage It

Session Description

Connecting to "things"in an industrial environment can be difficult. Yet connection is critical to Operations and the ability to make smarter business decisions-if you can't measure it, you can't manage it. You'll learn about the complexities of communications in the Oil & Gas industry, including devices, networks, data, and the various applications that need field data to realize the power of the Industrial Internet of Things. Specifically, the session will first step through the various stages of the industry - from onshore and offshore drilling rigs to production facilities at wellsites to gathering and pipeline operations to refineries that prepare the products for market. It will then review the challenges that disparate devices, legacy equipment, limited bandwidth networks, and large data volumes present. Finally, the session will introduce Kepware's KEPServerEX connectivity platform as a solution to these industrial connectivity challenges.
