Radix and Microsoft are presenting together, during the Improving Performance of Capital Projects conference which will take place between May 23th-24th in Houston, Texas. With the downturn of the market, capital projects have begun scaling back, moving away from large-scale projects to more small and mid-sized projects. These projects present a host of new challenges given the need to cover multiple functions with less resources. This event will focus on tackling these sticky areas allowing you to benchmark governance process, mitigate contract risks, and ultimately improve projects delivery while keeping abreast of the latest trends in the field.

On the second day of the conference, Radix US CEO, Flávio Guimarães, and Randall Hoppe, Industry Director of Oil and Gas at Microsoft are presenting on how software can be used to reduce the costs of Capital Expenditures (Constructability) and more importantly provide a seamless transition to an optimized operations environment.

Both Microsoft and Radix are sharing their vision regarding the Next Generation of Control Systems, based on the Open Architecture Technologies. The increasing costs related to replacement and life cycle management of current control systems are bringing operators, led by ExxonMobil, to push the Automation solution providers to change the current industry paradigm. A new concept of Automation solutions should consider levers like interoperability, scalability, cybersecurity and open standards, reducing the gap between OT and IT worlds.

The challenges and the opportunities of a software centered approach for the Process Control industry will be presented in the session that will take place at 9am! Don't miss it!
