AVEVA will host its fourth AVEVA World Digital (AWD) conference on the 17th June 2021. Aimed at leaders and decision-makers interested in innovative industrial technology, to deliver digital transformation and strengthen resilience in a challenging environment, this is the first joint AVEVA and PI System event since the company acquired OSIsoft earlier this year. AWD, a half-day event, will explore how data-led insights infused with artificial intelligence can help organizations optimize their value chains for long-term business growth.
AVEVA’s recently appointed CEO, Peter Herweck, will kick-off proceedings with a session that lays out how Performance Intelligence, the concept developed by AVEVA to explain the outcome of combining information, artificial intelligence and human insight. Also, in the presenter line-up will be Nicole Malachowski, the first female United States Air Force fighter pilot to be part of the elite Thunderbirds squadron, who will address resilience and innovation by speaking from her own debilitating experience with Lyme Disease. Having lost the ability to read, write, walk, and fly, the one-time advisor to former US First Lady Michelle Obama tapped into her aerodynamic training bounce back – a secret she will share with AWD attendees.
“I am looking forward to virtually engaging our customers and partners at my first AVEVA World Digital as the company CEO and the first for former OSIsoft customers. Over the past year, digital transformation has demonstrated how trusted data and artificial intelligence can reshape the future of industries, as well as create new experiences and business opportunities,” commented Peter Herweck, CEO, AVEVA. “We have witnessed how Cloud, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) continue to drive operational resilience in a digital-first environment. Today, AVEVA’s software is enabling organizations, throughout the globe, to harness greater efficiencies, increase agility and accelerate growth – all key factors in also advancing sustainability for industries.”
