  7. 7. Gregory Tink Managing Owner The Streamline Group Panelists Arlen Nipper President & Chief Technology Officer Cirrus Link Solutions Travis Cox Co-Director of Sales Engineering Inductive Automation
  8. 8. Disruptive technologies set off a new industrial revolution: • The Internet of Things • Big Data • The Cloud • Mobility • Social Technologies Disruption
  9. 9. The unprecedented increase in data is changing everything • Major companies are leading in the “ongoing digitization and ‘data-fication’ of industry” Source: “An Internet to Call Our Own,” Smart Industry Magazine The ‘Data-fication’ of Industry
  10. 10. • Aging infrastructure and equipment creating obsolescence • Global competition forcing co.’s to lower costs and increase profitability • Price of oil pushing even more on lowering operating costs • Tech trends (IIoT, Cloud services, wireless technology & mobility) driving the process industries to embrace change • The status quo with expensive DCS upgrades no longer viable • Other industries have an open, standards-based, secure & interoperable control system. Why not in oil and gas? State of the Oil and Gas Industry

  12. 12. Recent developments at ExxonMobil: • Challenging traditional automation technologies and practices to significantly shorten project cycle times and lower capital investments • Asking automation suppliers to be innovative and not just make incremental improvements Source: “ExxonMobil Makes Another Push to Overhaul Process Automation,” Automation World ExxonMobil’s Push for Innovation
  13. 13. In the IIoT era, more companies are moving toward platforms: • Editor-in-chief of Automation World writes: “a confluence of trends that appear to indicate a move by both automation suppliers and end users toward an automation platform approach … a move away from the long-held practice of buying discrete devices, software and/or systems for specific operations goals” • Prediction from ARC Advisory Group: “Suppliers of all kinds will tout the power of their ‘platform’ in 2016” The Rise of ‘Platforms’
  14. 14. OT-IT Convergence
  15. 15. Information Technology (IT): • Software, hardware, telecomm & other services for processing and transmitting info, facilitating communication, and generating data for enterprise use • Used mainly at management level • Built from the top down • Personnel adept at SQL databases, Java, etc. Operational Technology (OT): • Used for machinery and other physical equipment, monitoring and control systems, etc. • Used on the plant floor • Built from the ground up • Personnel adept at PLCs, HMI/SCADA systems, etc. Comparing IT and OT
  16. 16. Two Separate Worlds … “IT worked from the top down, deploying and maintaining data-driven infrastructure largely to the management side of business. OT built from the ground up, starting with machinery, equipment, and assets and moving up to monitoring and control systems. For a long time, these two divisions kept to their own turf and found their own effective solutions to problems …” Two Worlds Collide
  17. 17. … Until Something BIG Happened: “Then came smart machines, Big Data, and the Industrial Internet, and the worlds of IT and OT suddenly collided.” - GE.com, “Converge and Conquer” Two Worlds Collide
  18. 18. Definition of IT-OT Integration: "IT/OT integration is the end state sought by organizations (most commonly, asset-intensive organizations) where instead of a separation of IT and OT as technology areas with different areas of authority and responsibility, there is integrated process and information flow.” – Gartner OT-IT Integration
  19. 19. Benefits of OT-IT integration: • More information for the enterprise (better decisions, more field device data, OT data benefits business applications) • Reduced costs • Lower risks • Optimized business processes • Faster development and integration • Standardized communications and control OT-IT Integration
  20. 20. • Message-Oriented Middleware (MOM) technologies allow for decoupling of device protocols from applications • MOM provides for more efficient information distribution, increased scalability, and much shorter development times • Publish/Subscribe replaces traditional polling methods • Data goes into infrastructure and not directly into applications One that Decouples Device Protocols from Applications: A Different Data Architecture
  21. 21. Ignition bridges the gap between the enterprise and the plant floor by converging OT & IT. Ignition IIoT
  22. 22. • While a number of different communication protocols are currently in use, the Message Queueing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) transfer protocol is quickly emerging as the standard for IIoT Which Protocol to Use? MQTT Protocol for IIoT
  23. 23. Publish/Subscribe: • Edge-of-network devices publish to MQTT server on- or off-premise • Easily push data from thousands of devices to a central location where industrial & business applications access it Super-Efficient Data Pipeline
  24. 24. Inductive Automation Universal industrial applications platform: open, standards-based, cross-platform, database-centric with unlimited connectivity. Streamline Group Overarching architecture and migration approach to solve business problems and leverage newer technologies. Cirrus Link OT-led IT solutions become real by leveraging the MQTT Protocol Today’s Approach
