Helping Manufacturers turn challenge into opportunity with Industrial IoT at HPE Discover 2020

Learn how edge compute and hybrid cloud technology work together in manufacturing environments, to create a seamless digital foundation that can handle the most robust analytic requirements of industrial-strength data.

DVE Blog Title IoT 400x267 - v1.jpgImproving operations for greater efficiency and productivity helps manufacturing and industrial companies maintain a competitive advantage. Industry 4.0 and digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), the industrial IoT (IIoT) and predictive analytics enable the convergence of plant floor operations technologies (OT) and IT. This convergence has spawned a host of use cases to improve quality, reduce waste, make better business decisions and ignite innovation. What’s more, these same capabilities could also help assure business continuity if another global pandemic or similar crisis forces them to send workers home once again.

At HPE Discover Virtual Experience, starting June 23, HPE will showcase how manufacturing and industrial organizations can achieve results from digital transformation, helping them become more adaptive and resilient to extreme market dynamics.

Learn how edge compute and hybrid cloud technology work together to create a seamless digital foundation that can handle the most robust analytics requirements of industrial strength data. See the list below of on-demand sessions and virtual demonstrations, and mark your calendars for the June 23 kick-off, and get started now by registering here.

Featured sessions

F315 – IT Strategies for a Smart Factory

Industrial IoT data at the edge holds the key to making factories smarter, faster and more cost-effective. Scaling from a POC to full production remains a challenge for even the most willing manufacturers. Creating a smart factory requires merging operational technologies (OT) with information technologies (IT). Edge computing, where these worlds meet, helps manufacturers effectively deploy and scale IoT solutions. Learn how HPE and PTC IoT edge-to-cloud solutions are helping companies drive digital transformation across the enterprise.

F487 – Delivering Sustainable Innovation That Accelerates Your Business

The key to progress, particularly in times of economic and societal crisis, is sustainable innovation. Faced with mounting pressure from stakeholders, enterprises are seeking to optimize and reduce the footprint of IT infrastructure, mitigate supply chain risk and maximize the value of sustainability. Find out how HPE can help accelerate your digital transformation with sustainability in mind, so you can overcome the resource limitations holding you back while driving innovation, increasing time-to-value and advancing your corporate purpose.
