09:45 - 10:00 | Welcome and introduction
Joe Drumgoole, Director of Solutions Architecture, MongoDB
10:00 - 10:40 | Why Your Dad’s Database won’t Work for IoT and Industrie 4.0
Joe Drumgoole, Director of Solutions Architecture, MongoDB
IoT is the next big paradigm shift in computing. The move to super-dense sensor networks creates a completely new set of opportunities and challenges for developers, designers and end-users. The databases we designed for the computing environments of the early 90s can no longer support modern, mobile super-scale web applications. In this talk, Joe will discuss some of these changes and how they impact the requirements for a modern database.
10:40 - 11:20 | MongoDB Technical Presentation
Marc Schwering, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
The value of the fast-growing class of NoSQL databases is the ability to handle high velocity volumes of data. And also enabling greater agility using dynamic schemas. MongoDB gives you those benefits while also providing a rich querying capability, and a document model for developer productivity. Learn about the reasons for MongoDB's popularity, and how you can leverage the core concepts of NoSQL to build robust and highly scalable IoT applications.
11:20 - 11:35 | Coffee and networking
11:35 - 12:20 | Customer use case: BARCO - MediCal QAWeb
Pieter Mourlaert, Scrum Master & Team Leader, and Kurt Pattyn, Software Architect, Barco
MediCal QAWeb is an online software service developed by Barco for monitoring image quality and uptime of medical display systems in hospitals all over the world. The first of its kind, it offers proactive alerts of quality issues, automatic issue solving, centralised asset and Quality Assurance reporting and much more. The new version is under development and will use MongoDB and Node.js.
12:20 - 13:00 | Live coding: MongoDB and the Internet of Things (IoT) in real-time
John Page, Senior Solutions Architect, MongoDB
Data from physical sensors and monitoring tools comes thick and fast! The so-called 'Internet of Things' is one of the fastest growing sources of "Big Data"; data that is too large to process using traditional methods. In this session we will connect-up nearly 5,000 sensors in the auditorium for audience interaction. See the evolution of the schema design for processing this data using the unique properties of MongoDB to produce realtime and retrospective analytics.
13:00 - 13:45 | Lunch and networking
13:45 - 14:25 | Keynote: To Make the World a Brighter Place: How Data Drives Sustainability
Dr. Felix Hanisch, Head of Technology & Innovation, Covestro (Bayer MaterialScience) Basic Chemicals
The chemical industry – especially in mature economies – can grow only when helping to solve the world’s sustainability problems. This starts with own operations, continues with innovations in process technology and products and does not end with tighter collaboration with customers and end-users. We don’t know today which data tomorrow will be required to achieve this – so having as much data as possible accessible in a high-performing structured way is key.
14:25 - 15:05 | The Contribution of New Data Storage and Analytics Strategies to Smart Manufacturing and Economic Growth
Valentijn de Leeuw. Vice President, ARC Advisory Group
Smart manufacturing (including Industrial IoT, Industrie 4.0 and related approaches) stimulates innovation aimed at increasing competitiveness and sustainability. In the realm of manufacturing automation and IT, new possibilities are amongst others different forms of industrial data analytics that require the processing of large streams of structured and unstructured data. Rapid analysis of big data trends, provide increased opportunities for proactive decisions making with enormous economic potential, for example in the case of rapidly developing equipment performance degradation or quality anomalies. Attendees will learn why this comes with new requirements to data storage and processing that older architectures cannot fulfil. The presentation will discuss options available on the market and the associated advantages and disadvantages and tradeoffs the manufacturing industry should consider.
15:05 - 15:45 | OPC Unified Architecture as a Standard Integration Platform for the (Real-Time) Enterprise
Stefan Hoppe, Vice President, OPC Foundation
In his presentation, Stefan will answer the following questions: Why is OPC Unified Architecture recommended by ZVEI, VDMA and Bitkom in their reference architecture for “Industrie 4.0”? What is the difference between IoT and “Industrie 4.0” and why OPC UA is an enabler for both? What are the infrastructural requirements for different information domains? Finally, he will present the adoption of a true multi-vendor, multi-platform, secure and reliable interoperability system for M2M and Device-to-Enterprise.
Get to speed with the adoption of OPC UA, the one integration standard for the agile enterprise and beyond.
15:45 - 16:00 | Coffee and networking
16:00 - 16:40 | Rethinking Global Real-Time Data Integration, From Why to How
TIMO KLINGENMEIER, CO-FOUNDER AND MANAGING DIRECTOR, INMATION SOFTWARE GMBH, AND MICHAEL SAUCIER, FOUNDER AND CEO, TRANSPARA CORP, PHOENIX, USA
In this joint presentation, two innovators present their vision about an integrated real-time system of the decades to come, which is actually available right now. Take a good mix of computing power, modern OS features, new standards such as OPC UA, JSON, NoSQL, Lua Script, HTML5, high-bandwidth internet, the Data Cloud and shake it well. The result allows for architectures which let you create systems which formerly took man years of system integration in a few weeks or even less. Loss-less plug&play integration with industrial data sources of any kind allow for complete new architectures and possibilities. Full horizontal scalability lets you deploy one system worldwide, building the storage foundation in your central data centers instead of having data islands all across the globe.
Arrive skeptical and ask tough questions. We promise you will return technically convinced, sharing the same enthusiasm we have for the untapped value in your enterprise.
16:40 - 17:15 | system:inmation 'Enterprise' Product Launch
After almost three years of “Stealth Mode” development, inmation proudly unveils its game-changing real-time Enterprise infrastructure platform connected live to various distributed systems. inmation worked closely with leading industrial clients and partners to create a system which delivers high enterprise value, fast implementation, and low TCO along with unlimited scale-out and meticulous attention to information security. enterprise:inmation offers the simplest way to create and maintain a global real-time backbone for the enterprise. inmation developers have more than 100 man-years of experience with industrial system integration, and have crafted the system they dreamed of on integration projects across industries.
