Published on

In this webinar, experienced professionals from the water/waste water and plastics industries will discuss how they've been able to remove friction from their processes. Learn about a software platform built on modern technologies, unlimited licensing, a business approach that empowers users, and an ethical commitment to its user community. These combined elements remove operational friction by:

• Exponentially decreasing the time it takes to get the data you need
• Giving engineers freedom to develop systems without licensing obstacles such as limited tags or clients
• Enabling new users to quickly learn the software and begin developing applications
• Facilitating solutions that OT and IT can agree on
• And more!

  4. 4. Used By Industries Worldwide
  5. 5. Recognized as an Industry Leader
  6. 6. Recognized as an Industry Leader See the full survey at bit.ly/hmisurvey
  7. 7. Ignition: Industrial Application Platform One Universal Platform for SCADA, MES & IIoT • Unlimited licensing model • Cross-platform compatibility • Based on IT-standard technologies • Scalable server-client architecture • Web-managed • Web-launched on desktop or mobile • Modular configurability • Rapid development and deployment
  8. 8. Panelists Henry Palechek Information & Process Control Supervisor for Water District in California Chris VanRemoortel Engineering Manager, Bixby International
  9. 9. Friction in Business • Slows processes down • Impedes collaboration • Holds companies back • Reduce friction to increase results.
  10. 10. Friction in Industrial Businesses • Losses of time and money • Difficult to connect to other systems and get data • Restrictive licensing • Learning curve/training • Disconnect between OT and IT • Short-term focus/upgrade cycle
  11. 11. Mission Statement Our mission is to create industrial software that empowers our customers to swiftly turn great ideas into reality by removing all technological and economic obstacles.
  12. 12. The Four Pillars
  13. 13. New Technology
  14. 14. New Licensing
  15. 15. New Business Model
  16. 16. New Ethical Model
  17. 17. Ignition Removes Friction By: • Majorly reducing time/man-hours • Making data easy to get to • Making licensing unlimited • Being easy to learn and teach • Bridging the gap between OT and IT • Helping you future-proof your system
  18. 18. Reduce Friction by Saving Time • Download and install in minutes instead of hours or days • Add functionality or change configuration without shutting down • Launch and make changes to clients instantly • “Swiftly turn great ideas into reality”

  26. 26. Getting Data Easily – Report Screen
  27. 27. Getting Data Easily – Report Costs
  28. 28. Remove Friction of Licensing Limits • The unlimited licensing model is potentially $1 million worth of software value for about $10,000. • Allows engineers to focus on developing the best system without worrying about licensing details like number of tags, clients, etc.
  29. 29. Panel Discussion How has unlimited licensing reduced friction in your organizations? Henry Palechek Chris VanRemoortel
  30. 30. Ease of Learning Removes Friction • The software learning curve is frequently a source of friction. • Facilitating knowledge-transfer is part of our business model. • Real-life example: Summer intern at food packing company watched Inductive University training videos, developed new refrigeration control system in 6-7 weeks with no prior knowledge of Ignition or SCADA.
  31. 31. Panel Discussion How has Inductive Automation helped facilitate knowledge transfer? Were you able to learn Ignition and put it to use quickly? Henry Palechek Chris VanRemoortel
