    • On the way to Smart Factory On the way to Smart Factory Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services Recorded: Jul 22 2016 4:25 pm UTC 42 mins
    • Presented by Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services. In 2012, The Economist claimed we were entering the third industrial revolution based on the digitization of manufacturing, also referred to as the “smart factory.” The development and adoption of the Internet of Things is a critical element of smart manufacturing as reduced sensor device cost, and increased connectivity and in-memory processing give manufacturers the ability to gather and use data to increase product quality and transform operations. IT organizations are increasingly involved with the management, security and governance of this data as equipment and products are connected to the internet. This session will provide a practical framework for evaluating ways to improve sensor enablement, transaction processes and analytics based on real-world customer examples.

    • Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

      For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

      This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.

    • Smart Beta & Low Carbon Smart Beta & Low Carbon Eric Shirbini, Global Product Specialist with ERI Scientific Beta; Moderator, Brendan Maton Recorded: Jun 21 2016 2:00 pm UTC 70 mins
    • EDHEC Risk Institute has been conducting research for several years on the possibility of reconciling financial and environmental performance. The launch of a new series of low carbon indices by ERI Scientific Beta, the smart beta index provider set up by EDHEC Risk Institute in 2012, marks the practical realisation of these research efforts and represents an important moment for responsible finance, because the results of the research undertaken will provide institutional investors with smart beta indices that can reduce the carbon footprint of their equity investments by more than 80%, while at the same time outperforming traditional market indices and being able to create more than 50% additional value in the medium term.
       
      EDHEC Risk Institute's approach can be distinguished from numerous approaches that, over the long term, hope to outperform the stock markets through the higher returns of shares in firms that have a better carbon footprint, because these firms are supposedly less affected by the increasing cost of fossil fuels and the tons of carbon emitted, but that, in the short and medium term, aim to produce performance that is fairly similar to that of traditional stock market indices.
       
      •Topics covered include:
      •The limits of green stock picking
      •How to perform financially whilst reducing the carbon footprint
      •Presentation of Scientific Beta Low Carbon Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy Indices
