Today, leading technology and automation executives will convene at the 2015 Partner Exchange hosted by Kepware Technologies, a software development company focused on communications for automation. Preferred Distributors from more than 20 countries specializing in a wide range of industry verticals (including Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, and Power & Utilities) will gather at Kepware’s headquarters in Portland, Maine, to discuss industry trends, share global challenges and success stories, and preview the company’s road map.
“We are thrilled to have our international partners join us here in Portland,” said Brett Austin, President, Kepware. “The Partner Exchange is the perfect platform to showcase the advancements Kepware has made in the past year. Bringing together the corporations behind our worldwide distribution channel allows us to enhance our business efficiencies, both here in Maine and outside of North America.”
The three-day event will provide the Connected with Kepware™ partner program members with a unique opportunity to network with fellow business peers from around the globe and participate in more than twenty sessions lead by Kepware subject matter experts. Presentations will address new corporate initiatives—from products and services to applications and marketing.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will be a major focus of the event, including a keynote presentation from Matthew Littlefield, President and Principal Analyst at LNS Research, on capturing the business value of the IIoT. “For IIoT technologies to truly deliver rapid value to manufacturing organizations, it will take more than a single vendor and instead an entire partner ecosystem of solution providers across connectivity, cloud, big data analytics, and application development capabilities.”
