Evolving Water Operation's Edge with Ignition and MQTT (English)

In this conversation with Brian Cooper from INTEG System Integrators, we'll share how Ignition and MQTT transformed the operations of the Oudtshoorn municipality in South Africa. Situated in the Klein Karoo region of the Western Cape, Oudtshoorn is a water-scarce region. Visibility, measurement, and effective control of irrigation systems and borehole levels are crucial, both to reduce waste of available water resources and minimize variability in flow regimes and recharge. Using small and cost-effective Edge devices and standard protocols, MQTT and Ignition by Inductive Automation® solved several challenges. There are lower operating costs, enterprise-wide and real-time visibility, and reduced response times, from five minutes to mere seconds.

Embracing the Cloud: How 4IR Solutions' Ignition-Powered Platform Accelerates Life Sciences and Manufacturing

Industrial organizations, particularly in regulated industries like Life Sciences, have historically been hesitant to store GxP data in the cloud. But with COVID-19 pushing many organizations into accelerating their digital transformation roadmaps, the cloud has become a differentiating, and in some cases essential, technology that allows manufacturers to stay competitive through cost savings while enabling new ways to drive value. With deep experience in the Life Sciences industry, 4IR Solutions has developed a new cloud-hosted platform powered by Ignition, designed to meet the unique regulatory and compliance challenges faced by Life Science manufacturers, including Data Integrity and 21 CFR Part 11. This session will provide an inside look at how this platform makes Ignition a Smarter, Faster, Stronger tool by putting security first while enhancing Ignition's core capabilities through integration with cloud-native technologies. Executives from 4IR Solutions will provide an overview and demonstration of the platform and discuss how system integrators and manufacturers alike can leverage their existing Ignition skills to deliver secure, compliant, and cloud-enhanced solutions on top of 4IR's managed platform.
