The annual event at the Hannover Messe USA which took place a while ago is one of the largest international events that focuses on industrial technology. As for someone who wants to share his story at the event on his personal blog.
At the same time on the west coast, the Control Systems Integration Association (CSIA) also held their annual executive event in San Francisco, April 24-27, at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. At the event, there were representatives of the Jakarta System Integrator who will host more than 500 system integrators as well as industry partners with the theme “Growth Through Innovation and Healthy Business Practices”.
Cisco’s Jakarta Systems Integrator is a very brilliant sponsor and he will have some of our technical architects to talk to the system integrator community about the technologies affecting this space, architectural best practices and designs, and considerations for working with new and existing customers. .
The role of the Jakarta System Integrator has evolved from, for example, project-centric to a long-term solution partner that can assist customer manufacturing in important areas such as security, IT / PL convergence and industrial IoT implementation. Manufacturers are increasingly working with system integrators towards digital transformation as an extension of their in-house team.
The system integrator (SI) will be very useful for digital transformation in today’s modern era. Where SI has a reputation built on the implementation of critical manufacturing projects, and also their expertise in developing them. SI has long been at the forefront of architectural design, installation, project management and training, and protection of new technologies.
A shift to digital manufacturing could also shift SI talks from one-off projects to larger life cycle projects and a new stream of annuities that ultimately deepen their relationships with their manufacturing customers. This session is entirely dedicated to IS endeavors and focuses on where IS can make themselves more relevant and more integrated with their customers. In this session, SI will learn about the technologies that impact this space, as well as best practices, architectural designs, and key considerations for working with customers.
Cisco is a proud member of CSIA and has partnered with them in a recent webinar on how process integrators can capitalize on digital opportunities. You can get more impressions here.
