Rob Raesemann, owner of Raesemann Enterprise, and I sit down towards the end of Aveva World 2022 and reflect on our experiences. We talk about the new culture of OSIsoft/Aveva and what the future looks like.
I have an amazing conversation with Robert Catron, Manager of Global Data Science at Freeport-McMoRan. We talk about his 10-year journey starting with a successful small data science project to now leading a team that routinely delivers on much large and valuable analytics-driven solutions. He talks about the approach they took in the beginning and how that has evolved over the years. There are many great gems that Robert provides for anyone that is starting or maybe struggling with how to approach these types of problems.
Rob Raesemann, owner of Raesemann Enterprise, talks about his recent experiences with the changing landscape of industrial data solutions. As we move from monolithic platforms to a world with more choices there is not necessary a single way to do things, with this comes the ability add more advanced functionally, but also this comes with more complexity. We talk about OSIsoft’s PI System’s future and how open-source platforms are being adopted. We dive into the differences of these technologies and if they complement or compete with each other, and when/where they are being used.

Apache Kafka is an open-source distributed event streaming platform originally created by LinkedIn. It has gained significant adoption in the IoT space, with notable companies, like Uber, Lift, and Tesla using it to power their real-time needs.
I’m joined by Kai Waehner, from Confluent, who specializes in helping companies use Kafka for IoT and IIoT solutions. Kai is one of the foremost experts on this topic and shares his perspective on how Kafka is being used today and what the future may hold. This is a very exciting next-gen technology that has quickly established a proven track record. It is interesting to consider how it could be leveraged for IIoT.
