Our August issue arrives just as the month draws to an end. It’s always most interesting to hear from the clients directly and this month, we bring an interview with Oliver Sperling of Johnson Controls Inc., as he talks about strategy for order-to-cash and B2B integration. Another significant update is that we entered into a global strategic partnership with GE Digital this month to develop industry specific solutions, powered by the Predix platform. This announcement is followed by a report from the Everest Group on Converged Operations – an approach to enrich operations leveraging automation, auto escalation, predictive problem management and dynamic dashboards. Finally, you can watch the webinar, where Oracle and LTI executives talk about delivering efficient, service-based solutions with IoT.
