Four Software Events. One Epic User Conference.

Industrial Software’s Premier Event Previews the Digital Future of Industrial Operations

If it’s October 2-5 and you can’t find your lead engineer, your maintenance manager, your operations manager, your IT staff, your System Integrator, your SCADA engineer or your equipment operators, there’s a fair chance they’re in San Antonio previewing the digital future of industrial operations.

2017 marks the first year that Schneider Electric Software brings together the best of four major industrial events into one Texas-sized conference.

The Innovation Summit: Software Conference will be the first of its kind to unite the Process Industry Business Excellence Conference, Wonderware Live, Maximize Return on Assets, and Empowering the Mobile Workforce in Process Industries events into a single mega-conference celebrating industrial innovation, knowledge share and collaboration.

The Making of a Mega Conference

Before we dive head first into this momentous conference, let’s revisit all four events that will make up the Innovation Summit: Software Conference, and how they’ll be integrated into your experience in San Antonio.

Process Industry Business Excellence Conference Pasadena (SimSci)

What it is: Conducted by SimSci, last year’s Process Industry Business Excellence Conference was held in Pasadena, CA. The highlight of the 2016 conference was SimSci’s introduction of SimCentral, a new paradigm in process simulation.

The first presentation of SimCentral came from Richard Pelletier, a North American technical support engineer, who explained how his organization successfully used SimCentral to model steam. The presentation demonstrated how data could be set up in a steady state model to conduct hydraulic and dynamic analyses, and how to analyze and present the results.

What to expect this year: It’s only the beginning for SimCentral. At this year’s Innovation Summit: Software Conference, you can expect more customer stories and hands-on demonstrations of the world’s first commercially available platform designed to take advantage of developing web-based and cloud technologies while delivering a modern user experience that enables your workforce to be more productive, creative, and inspired.

Wonderware Live

What it is: Wonderware Live is a Wonderware user conference where customers, System Integrators and OEMs come together to discuss the evolving role of connected technology throughout industrial operations.

At Wonderware Live 2016, industrial thought leaders gathered in Orlando, FL to preview the future of industrial platforms: System Platform 2017 with InTouch OMI. This revolutionary new industrial platform paves the way for industrial organizations (small and large) to mature their digital operations, while the world’s first Operations Management Interface takes the concept of HMI and sprints towards the future.

What to expect this year: The #1 name in industrial software keeps getting better at the Innovation Summit: Software Conference. Expect to see hands-on demonstrations and workshops for System Platform with InTouch OMI, as well as Wonderware Prometheus, the first ever universal configuration tool that works across HMI & Supervisory, PLCs and IoT devices.

Maximize Return on Assets

What it is: In 2016, the Maximize Return on Assets event in Chicago was all about the benefits of comprehensive Asset Peformance Management solutions.  Supported by brands like Avantis, eDNA and PRiSM, industrial operators, engineers and maintenance got an up-close look at how to drive value through easy-to-deploy and proven solutions. 

What to expect this year: With an emphasis on Industrie 4.0 and the IIoT, expect to hear more buzz about Schneider Electric Software’s Predictive Asset Analytics solution. Plus, Avantis.PRO Enterprise Asset Management solution and the added mobile maintenance capabilities for work scheduling, task execution and data conversion.

Empowering the Mobile Workforce

What it is: Set in Houston, TX in 2016, this annual Conference and Tech Support Symposium enabled IntelaTrac mobile operator round users and partners to learn about the latest product enhancements, listen to other industry experts and collaborate with the IntelaTrac user community. The conference was designed to provide the knowledge needed to improve operations and existing IntelaTrac installations. 

What to expect this year: Schneider Electric Software's mobile components make information available to your workforce on your device(s) of choice, and ensure best business practices are followed and data is collected accurately and efficiently. As operational decision makers become more and more geographically dispersed, expect the 2017 Innovation Summit: Software Conference will cover several topics related to mobile security, real-time information delivery and getting the right information into the right hands to improve availability, productivity, safety and compliance.
