“The Industrial Processing show was a great event to kick off what will be another exciting year for online trade shows and events at GlobalSpec,” said Donna Lewis, vice president of e-publishing and e-events for GlobalSpec. “Once again attendance was outstanding and 74 percent of attendees confirmed they are decision makers at their companies. And this is just the beginning – as we are looking forward to delivering valuable content and quality educational sessions to the engineering and manufacturing communities at many events throughout the year.”
Speakers and topics at the event included:
- What Smart Instruments Can Do For You – A smart instrument is generally defined as a device that includes one or more digital network communication options. Because provision of digital communications requires a microprocessor, a wide range of other capabilities are also possible. Once smart instruments are understood and deployed, the payoff is less complexity, better performance, and reduced costs.
Presented by Craig McIntyre, Chemical Industry Manager, Endress+Hauser, Inc.
- Trends in Ultrasonic Flow Measurement – Ultrasonic flow measurement technology provides a number of benefits to process engineers. This non-invasive method of measurement keeps your process running while providing valuable insight into your plant's operation.
Presented by Bill Roeber, Vice President of Engineering, Racine Federated, Inc.
- Securing and Governing Cloud Services – Both public and private cloud providers will be faced with making new features and services available to their customers through exposing functional, management, and provisioning APIs to customers and partners securely. The presentation explored architectural and design requirements and contrasted these with where the cloud market is today.
Presented by Kenneth Owens, Vice President Security and Virtualization Technologies, Savvis, Inc.
- Forget About Energy Consumption; Control Its Cost Instead – For decades industrial companies were able to maximize the profitability of their operations by controlling the consumption of energy and materials while maximizing their throughput. In today's real time business environment this is not good enough. A new approach to driving profitability is required and available.
