When:  May 18, 2022 from 10:00 to 11:00 (CT)

Join Eric Belgard of Enginuity Global and Jason Andersen of Stratus Technologies as they discuss what it takes to modernize an automation and control system that is simple to execute, protected from unplanned downtime, secure from cyber-attack, and enhances performance from edge to enterprise. 

Attendees will learn key technical successes that Enginuity Global has experienced throughout many years of project execution, including:

  • Hardware obsolescence mitigation: What technology is available to us today?
  • Workload consolidation: How to integrate multiple software assets typically installed in multiple computers into a single yet redundant virtualized edge platform?
  • Project use cases: Explain the versatility of Edge Computing platforms using real world examples of projects executed by the Enginuity team.

This session will also cover Eric and Jason’s views on where control system architecture is going in the next 12 months as certain market demands drive customers’ needs.
