Rockwell Automation today announced that its chairman and CEO, Keith D. Nosbusch, will deliver a keynote presentation during the inaugural Internet of Things World Forum, a global event that unites thought leaders, business leaders and practitioners in business, industry, government and academia. Hosted by Cisco and held Oct. 29-31, 2013, in Barcelona, Spain, the event’s objective is to create a collaborative framework that will accelerate the adoption and positive impact of the Internet of Things on the global economy, society and environment.
Nosbusch will articulate the Rockwell Automation vision in collaboration with Cisco and others to help its industrial customers lay a foundation for a secure, connected enterprise using standard Ethernet and Internet protocols to connect people, processes, data and things to drive greater productivity and sustainable competitive differentiation.
“Rockwell Automation is the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information, and has been at the forefront driving connected-enterprise strategies for more than a decade,” said Nosbusch. “As the industrial space continues to become a more pervasive element of the Internet of Things, the operational rewards of securely making the right information available at the right time within the enterprise are even greater. That seamless integration of the enterprise, supply chain and plant floor is becoming the next wave of competitive differentiation.”
