Be part of the ultimate journey at X-Change 2019

March 2019 News

IS³’s 27th annual User Conference – X-Change 2019 – is the largest industrial software conference in Africa. From 17-20 March it returns to one of South Africa’s scenic Sun City Resort. X-Change has been a success for a quarter of a century because it has always delivered on three consistent promises: business and networking opportunities; the key to improved operational benefits; and an unequalled view into the New Way of Work, which enables transfor-mation through Edge-to-Enterprise.

This year at X-Change, IS³ will present the full AVEVA end-to-end software portfolio featuring industry-specific streams including, mining, minerals and metals; hybrid; oil and gas; and utilities. The AVEVA software solutions and products will be the focus for day two, with technical deep-dive sessions, together with the Collaboration Expo where demonstrations will be showcased throughout the day. These sessions and workshops are designed to demonstrate how Edge-to-Enterprise transforms business processes and the entire value chain to align with business goals.

What’s in it for you?

Hands-on training: includes a preview of all the new AVEVA products, the next generation of industrial software. Learn about the newly released and purpose-built turnkey industry solutions that address specific vertical challenges faced by end users.

Meet the experts: meet with the subject matter experts behind the technologies. IS³ and AVEVA thought leaders will host demonstrations and provide opportunities to speak specifically to you about your needs.

Network with peers: network with industry peers and share customer success stories and best practices. Throughout the conference you can meet face-to-face with industry and process experts, interact with fellow automation professionals and make new contacts.

Experience the products: discover how IS³ and AVEVA are leading innovation that can work for you using the technologies of the IIoT, Industry 4.0, digitalisation in the cloud, predictive analytics, and more, touch and experience the technologies all in one place with live hands-on demonstrations.

Industry-specific topics: discover what leaders in your industry are doing to compete in challenging economic times. Industry specific forums will cover pertinent topics such as compliance to regulatory requirements, increasing efficiency and reducing costs with automation.

X-Change by numbers

Four hundred delegates will get to see how their colleagues are addressing the ever-increasing challenges their industries face. They will meet like-minded people from Africa’s top mining companies, leading food and beverage producers, top manufacturing companies and major utility providers, allowing them to share how the problems they are confronted with are being addressed.

Fifty top-rated technical presentations by local and international experts will address various topics of interest to industry, including what to expect in the near future, and how to turn this into bottom-line profits. And they are not just at the speaker’s podium; they will also be available for one-on-one meetings about specific topics.

Ten end-user presentations will demonstrate the value AVEVA Software solutions have delivered to South African companies.

Twenty exhibitors from the best system integrators and solution providers will show the depth of knowledge and expertise available in the country right here and now. Every year, these industry leaders choose the unique opportunities offered by X-Change to network with existing and potential customers, and to showcase their capabilities. From instrumentation to software, and from consulting to system integration, these solution architects are at the top of their game and combine their skills, knowledge and experience with AVEVA software solutions to provide world-class implementations for industry.

Conclusion

X-Change is designed to help delegates address today’s challenging issues and pain points, whether they are in the mining, utilities, oil and gas or hybrid sectors. X-Change presents an opportunity to ask questions, so join us from 17-20 March and get the answers from those best qualified to supply them. X-Change is your opportunity to learn, share experiences and network at Africa’s longest running industrial software event.
