* Grasp the key concepts behind DDS and OPC-UA * Understand the difference between DDS and OPC-UA and their applicability to IIoT * Learn about the OMG and OPC Foundation initiatives on DDS / OPC-UA inter-working
The Object Management Group (OMG) Data Distribution Service (DDS) and the OPC Foundation Open Platform Communications - Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) are commonly considered as two of the most relevant technologies for data and information management in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Although several articles and quotes about the two technologies have appeared recently in the media, there is still incredible confusion on how the two technologies compare and what their applicability really is.
This webcast, was motivated by the presenter's frustration caused by reading and hearing so many misconceptions as well as "apple-to-oranges" comparisons of the two technologies. Thus to contribute to clarity and help with positioning and applicability this webcast will (1) explain the key concepts behind DDS and OPC-UA and relate them to the reasons why these technologies were created in the first place, (2) clarify the differences and applicability in IIoT for DDS and OPC-UA, and (3) report on the ongoing standardization activities that are looking at DDS / OPC-UA inter-working.
The webcast will last approximately one hour.
