Aras, the only resilient platform provider for digital industrial applications, today announced that CEO, Peter Schroer, will give a spotlight presentation at IpX’s ConX19 event, taking place August 26-28, 2019 in San Diego, CA. Technical Account Manager, Dave Ewing, and CTO, Rob McAveney, will also be participating at event by presenting in a breakout session and joining a panel.

ConX19 connects professionals striving for true enterprise excellence and features keynotes and panels from cross-industry executives within aerospace, agriculture, automotive, building infrastructure, defense, medical, regulatory and technology. The event will focus on the digital thread and twin, operational excellence, enterprise change management, Industry 4.0, and sustainable strategies for an Industrial Internet of Things (IoT).

Hypercompetitive landscapes are in a constant state of change and disruptive technologies accelerate that change. If organizations want to be competitive in the future, they must focus on avoiding the pitfalls they face while establishing a strategy that will digitally transform their business. In his spotlight presentation, “Sustainable Digital Transformation,” Mr. Schroer will discuss the importance of configuration management in an IoT world, why digital transformations fail, and what organizations can do to chart a path forward to deal with future threats while sustainably digitally transforming the organization to face tomorrow’s unknowns. Attendees can listen to Mr. Schroer’s spotlight during day 1 at 4:10PM.

Additionally, Aras Technical Account Manager, Dave Ewing, will give a presentation during a breakout session, discussing how to bring three typically siloed domains – Systems Engineering, Software and Simulation Management – out of the dark of the PLM underground and into the light of configuration management. In his presentation, “Delivering on Transformation: Bringing Systems Engineering and Simulation into the Light,” Mr. Ewing will talk about the importance of delivering value during digital transformation and how using the digital thread can help organizations build a connected network to prepare themselves for the next decade of growth. Attendees can join his presentation on day 1 at 1:30PM.

Finally, Aras’s CTO, Rob McAveney, will join other executives from Upchain, Javelin Technologies, Saratech, Physna and Configit for a panel discussion titled, “The Future of Digital Solutions and Enterprise Platforms.” Attendees can join the panel discussion on day 2 at 11:10AM.

“Aras has attended the ConX event for nearly 15 years and was one of the first CM2 Certified PLM solutions. We are excited to have the Aras team onsite and to hear from Aras CEO and founder, Peter Schroer, as he discusses where Aras is going next to achieve their goals in the Business of Engineering,” said Joseph Anderson, President of IpX.
