s868 - Are Your IoT Devices, Applications and Data secure? The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a huge business opportunity across almost every industry. However, it is also creating a massive attack surface in the enterprise, introduced by the scale and pace of adoption, as well as the physical consequences of compromised security. Until now, security has been treated as an afterthought; by adding layers of security after devices are delivered, with infrastructure and applications already in place. But security for the IoT is too important to be treated as an afterthought. IoT’s unique characteristics are also forcing a fundamental rethink about how Enterprises need to implement security management for devices and data. To combat these challenges, Device Authority has developed an enterprise IoT security blueprint which details device and data security guidelines for organizations of all sizes and industries. In IoT there is not one organization or one solution which can solve everything – it’s important to use expertise from within the wider ecosystem. Comodo CA provides trusted, mutual-authentication solutions, utilizing PKI certificates and high-availability, batch-issuance system for admins to easily enroll, download and decrypt quickly and efficiently. Gemalto provides Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) and Key Management System (KMS) for automated PKI certificate provisioning, high-assurance device authentication and managed end-to-end encryption at IoT scale. Organizations benefit from flexible options for secure and centralized key management, whether in physical, virtualized infrastructure, and public cloud environments. Data Protection on Demand gives customers options when migrating operations to the cloud and/or through a managed services model. Existing security solutions have evolved as an afterthought for the changing digital world. We now have an opportunity to include security earlier on at the design stage, in the new IoT world. Device identity and integrity are the new perimeters for IoT. Data security and privacy are extremely important to enterprise IoT use cases. Any enterprise-class IoT security solution requires a combination of automated PKI, high assurance PKI key storage and management, along with enterprise data security platform integration. In this session, learn about: • Device and Data Security • Implementing and running security operations at IoT scale • Meeting Compliance requirements and requests • Meeting performance requirements as per the use case Breakout Session Rao cherukuri, Device Authority

s936 - Beyond Cost Cutting – The Imperative for OFSE Companies Creating Efficiencies to Operate Sustainably Over the Long Term Today’s upstream oil field services and equipment (OFSE) companies are facing sustainability challenges due to oil price decline and pressured price cuts. The first imperative of the companies is to simplify the operations and generate more sustainable efficiencies. Companies are thriving to create a leaner organization that can help sustain in low price environment for years. Companies are looking to collaborate closely with their customers on a range of moves that radically restructure the cost base of the industry by engineering out cost, developing more efficient products and processes, and seeking novel business models to better align with incentives. The key moves focus on reducing internal costs, reducing customer costs and optimize company portfolios. Under optimization of company portfolios the technology enablement that lowers the condition based equipment maintenance costs and using advanced analytics to identify opportunities to optimize equipment maintenance spend are the key optimization areas with a targeted 40% cost savings. This presentation aims at unfolding OFSE customer success story & strategy, which made right choices to embrace PTC’s technology platforms to gain real-time access & visibility to ALS Pump Operations, Monitor operations, Analyze historical data, leveraging pump digital twin for maximizing performance and preventive maintenance to significantly optimize operations cost.

Piyush Batwal, Wipro Limited
s895 - Beyond Product Cost Estimates – The Holistic Design Approach for Engineering Leaders Ascertainment of product cost is required during every stage of the product development lifecycle. At the engineering stage, 70% of product costs gets defined, as specifications are frozen at design release. More than half of engineering effort gets wasted in design rework, which happens due to sub-optimized design not from just cost point of view but largely due to manufacturability challenges. It is imperative that organizations must front-load these decisions as there is much more flexibility at the beginning of an engineering cycle and a focus on aspects of design that drive and contribute to cost. We will demonstrate how simple changes to the design process can dramatically reduce product cost and improve design quality and how engineering leaders play a pivotal role in providing significant benefits to the organization. In this session, we will see how organizations can take a step towards getting early visibility of the product cost and focus on key areas that will help to build new innovative products faster and acceptable cost to their customers.

s943 - Blockchain & The Future of Distributed Manufacturing In the new digital economy, three questions would challenge enterprises, irrespective of their size and type: 1. Where in the value chain, internally and externally, are we paying the highest “trust tax” in terms of excess cost, effort or lack of agility? 2. Which types of partners, in what geographies and with what expertise, could we work with if transaction costs and efforts were lower? 3. Which information assets (e.g., manufacturing, maintenance, operational and usage data) about our products could we monetize if there were a secure way to do so? Additive Manufacturing is a new, emerging technology to fabricate parts on demand. It can leverage speed and economies of scale if worked in conjugation with Digital Manufacturing – a practice built on decentralized & geographically dispersed network of manufacturing facilities. Cognizant has been piloting unique ways of bring Additive and Distributive manufacturing together by building parts and components leveraging Blockchain platforms. See and learn how this unique combination of technology breakthroughs now allow you to create a frictionless connection between the digital twin of the part and physical part through an immutable digital thread. This is enabled through voxel level control of 3D printing which allows for printing markers inside the part which can be manufactured globally on-demand. Markers enable digital product memories. An example of a marker is a QR code. This enables you to close the loop and enable the physical part to be digitally connected at all times to the model and all the part attributes – serial number, author, material etc.. Further, it enables the use of AR/VR technologies to digitally augment the parts. These new parts are called Digitally Augmented parts. Breakout Session Carlos Elena-Lenz, Cognizant

Manual testing can be time-consuming and prone to errors. In this session, we will discuss Automated Regression Testing, explore the benefits, share potential approaches and demonstrate a framework and URL based solution being used to increase the quality of production-ready solutions. We will cover the good, the bad, and the ugly in hopes that you can evaluate how an Automated Regression Testing (ART) approach may be leveraged within your organization to increase efficiency and the overall quality of solutions promoted to Production.
