Talk #1. Unified Analytics for IIoT: Tying OT to IT in GE Predix by Marty Pejko, COO at Centerity Systems

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is already transforming how manufacturing and energy firms build, maintain, sell, and deliver their products and services. GE’s Predix platform is at the forefront in providing the means to connect these IIoT devices and to develop the applications to manage and utilize their data to drive business outcomes.

With the explosion of connected devices and their data, however, the looming challenge will not just be in how we connect those devices to one another and manage them, but how to connect them meaningfully and reliably to the traditional IT and business processes they power.

At this event, Marty Pejko of Centerity Systems will explain how you can achieve holistic operational visibility into IIoT business environments by unifying OT (Operational Technology) and IT performance and organizing that data according to real business processes all on a single pane of glass. Marty will dive into Centerity’s integration with GE Predix and how their joint solution can help firms save on operational expenses (OpEx) and enable accurate and holistic business-driven decision making.

Agenda of the talk:

- Challenges IIoT presents for IT and business leaders

- Solution for tying OT to IT and business processes

- Centerity’s work with Predix for GE Oil & Gas

- Brief demo

- Q&A

Talk #2. Warren Jackson - GE Automation & Controls.

Warren will present the capabilities of GE’s new Industrial Internet Control System (IICS) portfolio, a range of “outcome optimizing” controllers that, together with a powerful array of mix-and-match input/output hardware, cloud connectivity and the company’s Predix app environment, are intended to allow industry to quickly, easily and flexibly integrate real-time controls with Industrial Internet analytics at scale.
