Rockwell Automation will help customers address their business and
technology challenges and reap the rewards of the industrial Connected
Enterprise at the upcoming ConnectED 2015 in Melbourne.
ConnectED 2015, which will be held 16-19 March at the Melbourne
Convention and Exhibition Centre is being hosted alongside Cisco Live, Cisco’s premier
education and technical updating destination for IT professionals.
With the line between information technology (IT) and operational
technology (OT) becoming less defined, manufacturers can become more
competitive, flexible and sustainable in a global market by establishing an
information-enabled Connected Enterprise.
Matthew Treeby, commercial marketing manager at Rockwell Automation
explains that their customers need to merge their information technology and
operational technology to remain competitive, with the convergence improving
connectivity across enterprise operations and providing the platform to
integrate information across business systems and the plant floor.
With ConnectED 2015 being hosted in association with Cisco Live,
attendees can see first-hand how these two worlds are coming together to offer manufacturers
more agility, lower cost of ownership and improved operations. Participants at
the events also benefit from having to register only at one event with free
admission to the other.
ConnectED 2015 participants will experience a world of solutions, including
seminars delivered by industry leading professionals, interactive hands-on
displays, workshops and certified training courses.
To improve collaboration between the OT and IT in any business, ConnectED
2015 will help attendees from the OT space gain better understanding of the
tools, technologies and expertise available to bridge the gap, while those from
the IT world will learn more about the specific network and technology
requirements for operations.
Rockwell Automation together with its distributors and PartnerNetwork
will demonstrate how the recent acceleration of the Internet of Things enables
new levels of connectivity for people, processes, data and things, ultimately
providing greater productivity, better utilisation of assets, and improved
decision-making to industrial companies.
