    Unlocking the value of Digital Transformation with a Unified Namespace

    Unlocking the value of Digital Transformation with a Unified Namespace

    Scaling of Industrial IoT solutions requires a Unified Namespace, which acts as a centralized repository of data, information, and context where any application or device can consume or publish data needed for a specific action. A place where everything is a node within an ecosystem

    Best described as “What one node knows, all nodes know”

    If a Unified Namespace is so important, why do most of us not know what the heck it is and how to achieve it?

    In this week's episode, we talk about the concept of a Unified Namespace strategy early in our Digital Transformation journey to ensure the full potential of your investment and that it can scale. I am pleased to welcome David Shultz of G5 Consulting to discuss architecting a digital transformation solution.

    Allyson Hawley - Hazard Girl - Bonus Episode

    Allyson Hawley - Hazard Girl - Bonus Episode

    Brought up in a mining family that had no time for gender stereotypes, Allyson Hawley, our guest on today’s show, was surprised when she began her mechanical engineering degree with hardly any fellow women students. Throughout her career in the male-dominated mining industry, Allyson has received a lot of support but has also experienced a lot of subtle and not-so-subtle discrimination based on the fact that she is a woman. As she explains, sometimes it’s difficult to identify discrimination, which is why it is so important to find a community that has your back. Allyson also shares the ways in which men in these fields can contribute to eradicating the issue of gender discrimination. We discuss how Allyson’s company is working towards increasing gender diversity in STEM fields, changes she has seen take place in her industry over the years, her take on the hiring process, and her thoughts about what it takes to create a sustainable future. Emily is joined by Blair Fraser and Charli K. Matthews as co-hosts and the combination of perspectives makes for an eye-opening discussion!

    Improving Guest Experience at an Amusement Park with AI and 25,000,000 data points per second.

    It might be indirectly but we are all in the customer service industry. For many of us our customers are not end-users, but other departments in our organization like operations. The challenge set out to this week's guests was “how do we improve the guest experience”

    In this week's episode, we talk about using AI for Predictive Maintenance on the equipment most of us have spent a lot of time and money to use for a few seconds of fun, amusement park rides. I am pleased to welcome the data science and analytics team from Atos to discuss this unique project that generates over 25 million data points per second.
