Novotek is changing to meet the demand driven by rapidly changing technology. During the event both long-established customers and the newly curious will have the chance to be updated on broad technology trends affecting industry, how Novotek is evolving to be the partner of the future, and what key things leading industrial software firms believe will be important to Irish industry.

Our ‘Digitalisation Wheel’ highlights key solutions and how they fit into a digitalisation programme

Trends such as IT/OT convergence, the rise of cloud, and the latest automation and industrial IT offerings all mean that industrial firms can get more leverage than ever from the data generated within their operations. Conversely, though, the skills and expertise needed to create advantages from evolving tech are evolving too. The advent of Novotek Solutions offers a bridge to industrials and their ecosystem alike. As a force multiplier in the Irish Market, Evolution will cover Novotek’s new capaiblities and expertise in the following areas

  • Taking fullest advantage of modern IT infrastructure for performance, maintainability, resilience and security
  • Adopting best practices for using the newest tools and releases from key vendors
  • Selecting appropriate tools for different functional needs – especially in a world where so many legacy systems have relied on traditional control and SCADA applications to do “everything”
  • Capturing good ideas from the broader industrial community so customers can tap into a broader pool of wisdom as they consider productivity, sustainability, brand building and other initiatives

Date and time: 20th September 09:00 – 15:00

Location: Crowne Plaza Hotel, Blanchardstown Town Centre, Blanchardstown, Dublin, D15 T1FD, Ireland
