RTI CEO to Speak at The Open Group Houston Event: Digital Transformation in the Energy Industry

Dr. Stan Schneider to Discuss Open Systems Software Frameworks and to Speak on a Panel Addressing How Technology Will Disrupt the Oil Business

SUNNYVALE, Calif.— July 18, 2018—Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, today announced that Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Stan Schneider, will be speaking at The Open Group Houston Event discussing open systems software frameworks as well as speaking on a panel titled, “How Will Technology Disrupt the Oil Business?” on Monday, July 23.

At the event, Schneider will lead the first session of the day in the "Open Process Automation" conference track, titled, "Open Systems Software Frameworks, Application and Lessons" at 2:45 p.m. CT.  He will draw on experience with many avionics and process control applications, including those with Exxon and Lockheed. This keynote presentation will compare and contrast the system architectural challenges. Schneider will also discuss lessons learned from several real Future Avionics Capability Environment (FACE)™ applications, and will then relate those lessons to experiences with a FACE-based architecture for a prototype oil refinery application. 

Later in the afternoon, Schneider will present on the panel, "How Will Technology Disrupt the Oil Business?" at 4:45 p.m. CT alongside industry experts from BR&L Consulting, Inc., Schneider Electric and ABB. Dr. Schneider will discuss the changes that have or are currently taking place in the Oil & Gas industry due to the advent of new technologies and the uptake of technology in general.

Digital Transformation in the Energy Industry is a four-day multitrack conference hosted by The Open Group that will cover several IoT-focused topics. Highlights of the event will include details around the update to the latest TOGAF® standard, an Internet of Things workshop, presentations by The Open Process Automation™ Forum, exploring common themes of digital practice, an ArchiMate® 3 Foundation training course and exploring how organizations are using the IT4IT™ Reference Architecture standard.

Process Industries like Oil & Gas, Petrochemicals, Power Generation and Distribution, Pulp and Paper, etc. are facing the opportunity to move their in-plant technologies to the next generation of Process Control Architecture. Led by ExxonMobil, The Open Group formed the Open Process Automation™ Forum a little over a year ago to take advantage of these burgeoning opportunities. It addresses both technical and business issues for process automation.
