WEBINAR: Enabling Smart Water Operations with Yokogawa’s Future-Ready Digital Platform

To help water customers overcome their operational challenges, enhance their efficiency and productivity, Yokogawa, a leading company in industrial automation (IA) and technology solutions, has developed a new integration platform with flexible visualisation and seamless collaboration called Collaborative Information (CI) Server. It supports the secure and transparent flow of information from plant level throughout the business enterprise. The CI Server is an Operation Technology (OT) gateway which allows the convergence between Information Technology (IT) and OT. This enables seamless access to data driven optimisation using technologies such as artificial intelligent (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Join Yokogawa’s team of experts in this informative webinar on 27 Mar 2024, 11:00am–12.30pm (GMT+8) to learn more about CI Server and its use cases, which include an application of AI and ML algorithms for microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) membrane cleaning optimisation and a success story from Indonesia.
