About this presentation

Digital transformation, digitization and industrial internet of things all seem to be great concepts that can bring enormous savings to those who can utilise them. Often these solutions can be expensive to implement, standalone and not in keeping with the latest cybersecurity standards.

There is a concept of ‘known solutions to known problems’. In this talk we’ll explore a few of those known solutions and how they can be deployed. This could be from lost efficiencies in heat exchangers, pump health problems or capturing steam losses.
