The Cloud Connection

In the past few months I have shared previews of our upcoming cloud-based collaborative automation platform with many automation professionals globally. These presentations have included a mix between short-term and look-ahead capabilities.

The most fun aspect of these interactions are the one-on-one dialogues that follow the formal part of the presentation, particularly when the audience starts connecting the capabilities of the cloud platforms from the social sphere with the world of automation.

It’s an epic Ah-Ha! moment.

A recent example involved the concept of hash-tagging, with one person suggesting that hash-tagging control logic and combining that with search/presentation capabilities could provide an entirely new way of accessing, interacting and presenting information in a very dynamic and easy to learn manner.

Very true!

What kind of tools from the social collaboration front would you like to see available as part of your automation ecosystem?
