    We're bringing together leaders from the world of energy networks and from the digital infrastructure ecosystem in one of the world's most energy aware cities for a very big discussion on the future.

    The Energy Smart Summit is part of a global series that brings together data center operators and energy providers to discuss how together they can leverage advanced and integrated tech to become “energy smart”. Advancements in software-defined, open source, AI, and highly efficient UPS technologies, to smart grid integration and green power resource, are accelerating the industry towards smart everything, linking the silicon chip all the way to the power station.

    With exponential demand driven by IoT, Smart Cities and Big Data applications, there is a growing need to efficiently power more localised, more agile and much more scalable IT infrastructure. How will the disaggregated data center feed off the energy networks of the future? Will edge strategies be defined by energy grids? What are the latest advancements in software-defined power and cooling innovations and how can we secure our critical infrastructure in the age of IoT?

    Take a look at how the Energy Smart discussion went in Silicon Valley

    Implementing the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and achieving its benefits can’t be done alone. No single engineer has all the answers, and no one vendor has all the tools. But, through collaboration, the IIoT’s promises of increased uptime, enhanced performance, and improved product design can be achieved. A common set of technologies and techniques are used to develop successful IIoT applications, whether in manufacturing, condition monitoring, test, or control. This is the IIoT technology stack. This free, one-day, industry event explores these fundamental parts and their interconnections that enable engineers to architect IIoT applications from the sensor to the cloud.  

    Who Should Attend?

    This event is for engineers and engineering managers with an interest in implementing an IIoT solution. 

    Why Should You Attend?

    • Learn about key IIoT technologies, how they interact, and how you can customize them to fit the specific needs of your application
    • Move beyond the jargon with live demonstrations and case studies featuring real-world IIoT implementations
    • Become your company’s go-to engineer for all things IIoT

     Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from IIoT technology leaders, network with your peers, and find out how you can optimize the “things” that matter most to your business.
