In a world of relentless competition, optimum facility operation is an absolute must. This translates to uptime, efficiency and continuous availability of facility systems. To this end, companies are increasing investments in big data and predictive analytics to foster continuous improvement. In this webcast, we will discuss the nature of those investments, how to assure they are leveraged appropriately and protecting the systems involved. Continuous improvement starts with systems that provide the analytical information used to guide the effort and it requires a cultural commitment to the effort itself. Access to that information takes the form of an intelligent, connected enterprise or, to use the phrase of the times, investing the Internet of Things (IoT) for your facility enterprise. We will discuss the nature of that investment and the steps required to maintain and protect it. It is critical to assure the continuity of information at critical times from critical devices and systems. We will discuss, network & device management, edge compute, cybersecurity and critical power protection as means to ensure important data isn't permanently lost during facility events.
