Recently, participants from TU Automotive and Aeris sat down for an in-depth webinar on the challenges and solutions encountered by the evolving automotive technology segment as it converges with consumer electronics, mobile, and IoT to re-define connectivity, mobility, and autonomous use cases.
Evan Whitelock, Product Marketing Manager, Aeris, shares how your peers are dealing with – and tackling – complexity across the fleet industry. Topics addressed will include:
• How do businesses increase usage without raising the cost of connectivity?
• How do you manage multiple deployments on a single platform and still keep costs in check?
• And, if a single, multi-tier platform can standardize processes involving multiple distribution channels and levels, how will that positively impact performance, control, and costs?
Your organization has decided to empower its growth through an Internet of Things (IoT) solution. What defines success in launching your first solution? You need a reliable partner who will allow to easily pilot and scale your connected devices, manage your resources anywhere – all from one platform.
This webinar explains the three essential factors that have to be present on the platform of your choice and that will significantly influence your success:
• Global Coverage and Connectivity
• Cost Effectiveness and Manageability
• Comprehensive Support and Troubleshooting
Join us for an Aeris webinar where we introduce and address three common challenges for expanding a company’s capacity to deploy, maintain, and manage IoT devices and services throughout the entire lifecycle.
From subject matter experts, we learn how to:
• Reduce operational costs associated with increased global IoT deployments;
• Manage cellular costs associated with increased usage while buttressing the reliability of their solutions; and
• Use innovative IoT platforms to standardize processes involving distributed supply chains.
Whether your company is on the cusp of expanding IoT solutions globally, engaged in IoT technology transitions, or seeking to reduce the inefficiencies associated with the absence of mature IoT management processes, this webinar will provide clarity and a framework for identifying emergent solutions.

The common wisdom is that cloud adoption in Europe is trailing behind the US and that we will eventually “get there”. In this webcast, Carla Arend and Angela Vacca will debunk this myth and provide proof points about why customer journeys to the cloud actually follow a different pattern in Europe. They will outline the technical, cultural and geopolitical reasons for why cloud adoption is different and how different industry verticals are adopting cloud.
IT vendors need to understand their customer’s cloud maturity to tailor their messaging adequately.

In this webinar we will share with you IDC's concept of building a business case around digital transformation, and the broader strategic priorities of organizations connected to digital transformation working together to deliver business objectives. We will share market insight into the regional and industry use cases driving investment in Digital Transformation, providing an in-depth view of the Digital Transformation spending outlook connected to business use cases.
New digital technologies and business strategies are changing the fabric of our organization's products, services and customer engagement models. In turn, these changes have redefined the CIO's role with the Board, with their Peers and with their Teams – creating a mandate for CIO's to consciously rethink their communication strategies, tactics and methods. This session provides three unique communication frameworks for CIO's to guide their communication with the Board, their enterprise Peers and their Teams.
Regulatory guidelines and budgetary constraints have long shaped grid investments. The primary focus is to ensure that the electric grid is available at all times and is resilient to any disruption. This has been a relatively predictable task until now. As more households gain access to and embrace disruptive devices such as smart home devices, electric vehicles, and distributed energy resources, to what degree are utilities prepared to manage these changes and what sort of role and influence will they have in the future?
· Get an in-depth view of emerging and cutting-edge solutions that are transforming the digital grid space.
· Learn about grid modernization initiatives.
· Obtain insight on key stakeholders to determine who would be ideal strategic partners.

In this webinar we will consider potential uses for coal beyond power generation and steel blast furnace furnaces. There are opportunities to use coal derived feed stocks in chemicals, minerals, agriculture, new materials and pollution control. With the electrification of energy use that is projected to double by 2040 this is raising demand for new materials and minerals that can be derived from coal to support renewable energy generation and the electrification of ground transport. The problems of desertification and fresh water supply are set to increase and coal products can be used to mitigate soil erosion, improve water quality, and also reduce emission from fossil fuel power plants.
The recent discovery of new forms of carbon is leading to applications in energy storage, aerospace and composite materials. When considering new carbon-based materials a major issue is the source of carbon and whether it is suitable to use a coal feed stock, and what the effect of that is on the quality of the product and the manufacturing complexity. In addition to new applications for carbon there is an established coal to chemicals industry that provides a host of everyday products that is encountering new environmental challenges. The versatility of carbon means that this webinar will cover a broad range of topics exploring issues and opportunities for the non-energy uses of coal.

In this webinar, see how Knovel can help save you time and cost the next time you have a corrosion challenge.
Before the price recovery in 2016, the price of internationally traded coal took a downward trend for five consecutive years, forcing coal producers to rationalise their operations. Today we see the export coal industry in a much healthier situation, with stronger prices and a lower cost base. This webinar will examine the costs of production of coal from major exporting countries around the world, and look at how cost trends have changed over the years.
This web conference will present the findings from the newly launched Worldwide Smart Cities Spending Guide in which 15 smart cities use cases were sized and forecasted by nine global regions. We will discuss the trends that are impacting investments, the highest areas of spending and growth, and differences between regions. Smart Cities investments will be discussed in the context of global trends in cities, and how these are impacting budget priorities and spending on specific use cases.
This session will look at the drivers, trends, impacts, and overall market for non-traditional robotics on the modern digitally connected business. The evolution of technology in general has helped to drive the evolution of robots for non-traditional business applications.
