Intel Customer Spotlight: Live Discussion With ExxonMobil

exxonmobil 2x1On Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019, Intel will host a live discussion and Q&A with ExxonMobil, a 135-year-old global energy product provider that is leading the way in defining standards for open architecture in industrial control systems.

This is the latest in Intel’s Spotlight series, featuring innovative Intel customers transforming their businesses across artificial intelligence, the internet of things and other data-centric technologies.

During the Spotlight event, Kenny Warren (project sponsor), Nick Clausi (vice president of Research & Engineering), Don Bartusiak (chief engineer, Process Control), Brad Houk (project manager, Open Process Automation) will discuss ExxonMobil’s internal R&D program and work with the Open Process Automation Forum to address a long-standing challenge with industrial control systems. The systems enable refineries and petrochemical plants to automate operational processes to maintain safe, stable and efficient operation. Traditionally, they have comprised proprietary, closed systems, and manufacturers have been locked into single-vendor solutions, limiting their flexibility and ability to adopt new innovations from different vendors.

During the conversation, ExxonMobil leaders will discuss how they focus on data and open standards to help drive a new era of innovation and growth. They will also discuss the company’s collaboration with Intel and the benefits of using open industry standards-based technologies that have been a major driver in helping other industries transition from proprietary, closed systems.
