Open Group Conference

July 22-July 26

Digital Transformation in the Energy Industry

Process Industries like Oil and Gas, Petrochemicals, Power Generation and Distribution, Pulp and Paper, etc. are facing the opportunity to move their in-plant technologies to the next generation of Process Control Architecture. Led by ExxonMobil, The Open Group formed the Open Process Automation™ Forum a little over a year ago to take advantage of these burgeoning opportunities. It addresses both technical and business issues for process automation.

The Open Process Automation vision is a standards-based, open, secure, and interoperable process control architecture which:

  • Enables access to leading edge capability
  • Allows integration of best-in-class components
  • Preserves asset owners’ application software; significantly lowers cost of future replacement
  • Employs an adaptive intrinsic security model
  • Promotes innovation and value creation
  • Applies across multiple process industries
  • Is commercially available

Find out at this event how this will be achieved by developing, publishing, and evolving a realistic open architecture and specifications that will be supported by industry end users, suppliers, and integrators.
