The term Digitalization is thrown around all the time in today’s work environment. With people still working remotely, reduced maintenance and support budgets and the ever-present pressure to improve performance and reduce downtime, digitalization offers some real advantages. However, with these advantages comes concerns. Concerns about cloud security, susceptibility of networks to outside access and making sure only the proper people see the specific information they should. These are key questions that are being asked and deserve to be answered.
Siemens provides an unparalleled range of products and services for the Water industry. With cloud based and networked based measurement and control products and a broad range of process and control apps, Siemens is uniquely qualified to address the needs and concerns of our customers. In this webinar we will address three areas that are critical to both the water industry, as well as the operators who make that industry work. First, we will address the concept of digitalization, what it means and how it works. From there we will review the security and safety issues surrounding the transfer of information to and from a cloud-based platform. Next, we will look at a basic, but powerful use of cloud-based information through the ability to monitor critical data from any customer location and provide that information to those who need it via smart monitoring. Lastly, we will provide an example of the full power of digitalization and cloud-based information exchange by looking at a critical aspect of any water distribution network – the ability to identify leaks and other lost revenue situations as early as possible. This will enable the user to avoid either a major loss of treated water, or the expense associated with on-demand maintenance when a crisis arises and instead rely on early notification and other predictive maintenance capabilities tied to early detection of issues before they become critical.
In this on-demand webinar we introduce you to these three different phases of digitalization and highlight the advantages that can be realized by embracing the ability to take information from where measurements are made and putting it in the hands of your people who can best utilize the wealth of data available in today’s process measurement and control environments.
Key learning objectives:
- Using a Cloud platform and associate cloud security
- Utilizing information from smart process instrumentation to better monitor your process and equipment
- An example of more advanced cloud-based apps for measurement and predictive information on a water distribution network
