Bakhtiar H. Wain, CEO of Avanceon , one of the expert engineering firms in virtualisation & IoT as applied to industries & infrastructure, was invited to join a select group of technology leaders on the roundtable about the impact of Industrial IoT as part of the Internet of Things World Forum 2015 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, which ran from December 6th to 8th.
The discussion centered on the current and future of what is also known as smart industries; or how these convergent technologies provide operational and strategic solutions to industries. Avanceon continues to forge ahead with this state-of-the-art solution in conjunction with forward-thinking industry partners, establishing milestones in regional smart city projects; the company recently completed one of the world’s largest and most innovative virtualization projects in the Middle East district cooling industry.
Bakhtiar H. Wain, one of the pioneers of energy management solutions and virtualization in the SAMEA region acknowledged the importance of IoT in the companies existing and future engineering projects:
“Industrial automation and sound engineering play a critical role in the rise of industrial IoT and has proven to raise standards & set new milestones through great public works. It is probably one of the topic of IoT that is the least communicated although it has helped in evolving and breathing life into smart technologies.”
In this vein, Avanceon has already played a major part in delivering one the world’s largest DCC SCADA industrial project, demonstrating its pedigree in the IoT space, and contributing at its own level towards the build up to Dubai 2020.
“In an ever-changing and constructive marketplace, it is our duty to master and lead our customers through the complex technological path in order to deliver the very best solutions. We will continue offering the most relevant and effective technology mix to our clients,” added Bakhtiar H. Wain.
Safety is a critical aspect of all projects undertaken by Avanceon, at the very core of Bakhtiar’s professional conscience and an area where the Internet of Things plays a significant role. Whether mass transport systems or in the foundation of smart cities, Avanceon has applied IoT systems effectively across safety systems throughout the Dubai Metro and Lusail City projects amongst others.
“Safety is at the forefront of everything we do at Avanceon, because we value the life of each individual that we touch. Every engineer, client, construction worker, member of the public that interacts with one of our projects is potentially at risk. The power of the Internet of Things lies in allowing seemingly disparate parts of the system to be wholly integrated into talking to each other. An automated analysis of all the gathered data elements can help predict a system failure, raise an alarm well in advance of what was previously possible and massively reduce fatalities,” commented Bakhtiar H Wain.
A trail-blazer in industrial automation, in 2015 alone Avanceon has hosted pioneering events covering both subject safety in its Seminar on Process Safety as a Business Continuity Imperative, and virtualisation in its Automation Symposium 2015 in South Asia.
The forum fueled a keen interest across the region in unlocking the power of Big Data, Convergence and Connectivity across multiple sources in order to streamline business processes. Seen as a technological solution to optimize existing processes, and therefore a growth opportunity.
