Digital Transformation through IoT that focuses on digital exploration, agile mining operations, connected assets, and next gen safety brings significant benefits to mining companies and mining technology suppliers alike. Mining organizations that don’t embark on IoT-enabled Digital Transformation will find it more challenging to compete in uncertain resources cycle. With more than 80% of IoT projects not progressing beyond POC stages according to Gartner, there is a disconnect between IoT technology and IoT capabilities.
This stems from a technology-centric approach to IoT that focus on connected “things” and less on the expected business outcomes. A July 2017 McKinsey study found that 70% of their respondents identified “integrating IoT solutions into existing business workflows” as a capability gap. The IoT challenge that mining companies now face is less of a technology problem and more of a business process problem.
This webinar presents a framework that provides the business architecture for using IoT that connects IoT technology to operational capability and business outcomes. The I2OC framework focus on aligning IoT technology with benefits such as increased asset availability, reduced downtime, reduced costs, increased efficiencies, and improve safety and governance. Pieter uses a practical mining example to present the I2OC framework.

The beginning of a security strategy starts at the end – securing your IoT endpoints. Endpoints are everywhere in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) landscape. Without proper endpoint security, IIoT systems may put your organization or the greater public at increased risk. Plus, the viability of the IIoT depends on proper implementation of an endpoint security strategy to counter the growing and ever-changing threats.
During this webinar, the editors of the Endpoint Security Best Practices Whitepaper will discuss this important document, customer use-cases, and the core components of a comprehensive, IIoT solution.

Your interconnected devices are only as strong as the weakest link. Choosing a connectivity solution without a robust security framework will leave your data and the system that supports it exposed and vulnerable. Fortunately, there are tools in place that can help address these challenges.
This webinar discusses the security-related benefits of applying reference milestones that the IIC has published over the last two years in industrial systems: the Industrial Internet Reference Architecture, the Industrial Internet Security Framework, and the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework.
The advent of connected devices and platforms are driving the digitization of manufacturing. Although systems and production facilities have long been automated and connected, today’s Smart Factory is adept, can learn from data and adjust in real time. The industry has evolved by bringing together the physical and digital world, creating torrents of data. In order to unlock the full potential, you’ll need architectures, frameworks and implementation plans. This webinar will give you an overview of available tools and guidance on getting started.

As connected devices become ubiquitous, a need arises for those devices to move and interact seamlessly among different domains in a trusted manner.
Blockchains may provide foundations for systems that require coordination where trust and authority are not centralized. This presentation will provide an overview of blockchain technology and suggest potential applications in the field of distributed, connected devices in industrial environment.
A Practical Guide to the Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework:
The IIC’s Industrial Internet Connectivity Framework (IICF) evaluates the most commonly-used standards: OPC UA, DDS, OneM2M, HTTP, MQTT, and CoAP. It also proposes an architecture for integrating them into a true Internet. However, with 130 pages it can be dense reading. This session will provide a simple set of questions to help you get off to the right start for your IIoT application.
Interoperability at all levels of the IIoT stack is key for the success of industrial IoT projects that require both OT and IT systems to work together. Interoperability, like security, cannot be an afterthought, it needs to be architected in the IIoT solution from the start.
In the webinar we will address key concepts of Interoperability from the device level to the business process application.

A practical way to get started with IIoT in a brownfield factory is by creating a “Green Patch in your Brownfield.”
Everyone is talking about deploying IIoT in brownfields to achieve incremental gains in productivity. But in the greenfield, IIoT can deliver a game changer: to change your business model to mass customization through adaptive machines. Batch size of one. Deliver direct from the production line to consumers. Flatten your supply chain, your sales chain. No greenfield in your near future? To get started, get focused. For your next capex, put a 'focused factory' in your existing plant -- a 'green patch' in your brownfield. Learn from a pilot project the full potential of IIoT with today's state of the art automation technologies, not the legacy assets of the brownfield.

The Industrial Internet Business Strategy & Innovation Framework
The competitive landscape is changing in ways which have yet to become completely clear. Collaboration and mastery of new skills, such as those within IIoT, will be essential to business success. An organized, disciplined approach to moving forward with IIoT is essential to that success. The Business Strategy and Innovation framework offers this approach with guidance and best practices derived from industry experts within the Industrial Internet Consortium membership.
The notion of a Smart Factory today is based on utilizing modern Industrial IoT concepts. While it is not practical for existing brown fields to immediately modernize and adopt all these technologies and best practices, it is however possible for factories to cherry pick individual technologies and practices as a path to gradually modernize over time. These include technologies and best practices that allow for seamless machine interoperability, easy data sharing between machines, MES, ERP, and SCADA systems.
This webinar will provide an overview of some of these technologies and will also discuss the new industry standards that make such a migration possible. We’ll also share a proof of concept, the IIC Smart Factory Web Testbed, which is a network of smart factories with flexible adaptation of production capabilities and sharing of resources and assets to improve order fulfillment.
Featured IIC Testbed: Smart Factory Web
The Smart Factory Web forms a network of smart factories with flexible adaptation of production capabilities and sharing of resources and assets to improve order fulfillment. Key challenges being addressed: How can we connect factories to the Smart Factory Web and exchange data reliably? How can we provide the information securely at the right granularity to authorized partners? How can production capabilities be adapted quickly and efficiently in response to orders?
