The cloud has become part of our everyday life; from online banking through enterprise resource planning applications, you may be using some form of “cloud” based system. Taking these systems and turning them into useful tools for manufacturing is still in its infancy, but it’s becoming more prevalent as the technology, and products, become adapted to the needs of the industrial automation user.

Microsoft and Invensys have joined forces to provide industrial software based on Azure Cloud Technology. We’ll share our vision, and show how incremental steps, such as virtualization, offers you a pathway. Lastly, Rick Moulton of Construction Resources Management will share his experiences using a cloud-based decision support system from SmartGlance, an Invensys endorsed partner solution.
