FITS Developer Workshop

October 8, 2019 @ 9:00 am - October 9, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

You are invited to attend the FDT Group’s FITS Developer Tech Ed Event on the 8-9th of October in Stuttgart, Germany.  Developers, end users, product managers, business strategists, IT/OT professionals and others are encouraged to register to learn, with demos and hands-on experience about next generation universal device integration and asset management with the emerging FDT IIoT Server (FITS) architecture set to empower smart plants and factories.

The emerging FITS standard, set to release at year-end, will provide control system and device vendors with the opportunity to advance their intelligent automation solution offerings with FDT’s standards-based, platform-independent, information-driven business models meeting the demands of the process and discrete markets. FITS will empower the intelligent enterprise by transforming manufacturing practices, enabling open, secure and flexible deployment architectures and sensor-to-cloud integration with embedded OPC Unified Architecture (UA) and Web Servers, as well as built-in security features and deployment options for cloud, edge, on-premise and desktop environments.

The developer event has been separated into two days.  The first day focuses on an in-depth look at the FITS architecture, while the second day grants attendees hands-on programming experience for FITS Server and FITS DTM development using the official FITS Common Component tool kits. Please review the agenda outlined below for each day.

Interested parties may register to attend a single day session or both days.  Registration is open to FDT Group members and non-members.

Registration to attend is free.  A special thanks to M&M Software for hosting coffee breaks, lunch and evening entertainment which are included in event registration.
