The Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the OPC Foundation recently announced a collaborative strategy for the two leading connectivity standards for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)—the OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) and the OPC United Architecture (OPC UA) standard. The two standards organizations, together with the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), Industrie 4.0, and leading DDS and OPC UA vendors will lead this strategy to enable immediate Industrial IoT market adoption.
In this webinar, Stan Schneider, CEO of RTI, and Thomas J. Burke, OPC Foundation President & Executive Director, will outline a strategy for the integration of these standards and discuss how they are largely complementary and compatible. Attendees will learn how these standards are important to the future of the IIoT as well as how companies such as GE, Honeywell, National Instruments, SAP and Siemens are supporting the strategy.
Dr. Stan Schneider – Chief Executive Officer, RTI
Stan Schneider is CEO at Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things communications platform company. RTI is the largest embedded middleware vendor and has an extensive footprint in all areas of the Industrial Internet, including Energy, Medical, Automotive, Transportation, Defense, and Industrial Control.
In 2014, Stan was elected to the Industrial Internet Consortium Steering Committee. With over 70 companies, the goal of the IIC is to develop, test, and promote the standards that are crucial to the success of the next industrial revolution. The IIC is also building use cases, test beds, architectures for the Industrial Internet. Stan serves on the Steering Committee with members from AT&T, GE, Cisco, IBM, Intel, Accenture, Fujitsu, and Vanderbilt University.
Stan has published over 50 papers in both academic and industry press. He speaks at events and conferences widely on topics ranging from networked medical devices for patient safety, the future of connected cars, the role of the DDS standard in the IIoT, the evolution of power systems, and understanding the various IoT protocols.
Based on its leading architectural impact, RTI was recently named the #1 most influential companyin the Industrial Internet of Things by Appinions as published in Forbes.
Before RTI, Stan managed a large Stanford robotics laboratory, led an embedded communications software team and built data acquisition systems for automotive impact testing.
