Webinar Overview

Many companies implement a Unified Namespace (UNS) to accelerate their Industry 4.0 projects. UNS is a great way to organize all of your data to establish a single version of the truth across your plant and enterprise. While the concept is really powerful, companies struggle to understand it well enough to implement it successfully.

Watch Kevin Jones, CEO and lead strategist at Ectobox, Inc., and David Schultz, the owner of G5 Consulting, introduce the concepts of the UNS, where it exists in an Industry 4.0 architecture, the benefits, and most importantly how to execute it.
