AVEVA World Summit 2016

Thank you for a great conference!

Between the 17th and 19th October over 280 participants from more than 30 countries got together in New Orleans for the 2016 AVEVA World Summit.

This year’s event themed “A Catalyst for Change”, was exclusively designed for business executives, packed with inspiring sessions, networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities. We heard from newly acquired customers such as Eastman, Southern Company and ITER on how their businesses are managing change, seeing tangible benefits with AVEVA technology. Here are a few of the comments from the event:

  • Images are new assets; keep the digital twin in sync with your physical one.” – Monica Schnitger
  • Choose IM software that helps you make quality decisions in less than 3 minutes”. – Chevron
  • Trade off perfect solution for a timely one; 80% is good enough” – Eastman Chemicals
  • In a digital era, shift from MY DATA to OUR DATA mindset” – Jim Crompton, ex Chevron
  • Applying great software to bad processes, just means you mess up faster” – Southern Company
  • 80% of world’s GDP trust AVEVA with scale and costs”. – ITER

Testimonials

See What Industry Experts Say

The AVEVA World Summit 2016 featured compelling sessions from business leaders on how they are transforming their businesses in tough times. From making actionable, decision-ready information available to staff within 3 minutes, to closer collaboration between design and fabrication, to how to build a nuclear fusion reactor using E3D — interesting and thought-provoking.
Monica SchnitgerPresident and Principal Analyst, Schnitger Corporation
The AVEVA World Summit in New Orleans was an eye opening event for me. I was impressed on how far the concept of the Digital Plant has progressed. Technology is no longer the problem. The challenge is now to move our organizational cultures forward to accept this new way of working.

Introduction and setting the event objectives.

Richard Longdon, CEO, AVEVA

Change is constant, even in traditionally conservative industries. The end of easy oil, driving towards greener power and the imperative to be faster, decrease risk and grow profit are transforming the oil & gas and power generation industries. It’s often a struggle to justify improvement projects but experience shows that the companies that embark on a change program when markets are down are the ones best positioned to win the race in the upturn.

Monica Schnitger, President, Schnitger Corporation

Learn how Southern Company Operation’s Engineering and Construction Services (E&CS) Digital Fleet initiative envisions that for every physical asset Southern Company operates, there will be a digital one.
