Digital Transformation Training Series Debuts

The International Society of Automation (ISA) announced the release of its new Digital Transformation Training series, a set of courses covering emerging technologies associated with digital transformation. Designed for engineers, technicians, business leaders, and managers engaged in industrial automation and its related fields, the courses teach foundational concepts of digital transformation technologies and show how they can be applied to drive efficiency across multiple industries.

“The ISA Digital Transformation Training series will help organizations cross the chasm on adoption of digital technologies and upskill the workforce across their enterprise,” said Prabhu Soundarrajan, ISA Executive Board member and president-elect for 2024.

“This training is different for two reasons,” said Jeff Winter, director of ISA’s Smart Manufacturing & IIoT (SMIIoT) Division and industry executive, manufacturing, at Microsoft. “First, it’s modular and will keep growing over time. Second, it includes a mix of theory and strategy with hands-on, practical applications related to real-world controls that automation professionals are familiar with.”

The first course, Introduction to IIoT – The Industrial Internet of Things (DT101), is available now. It helps automation, engineering, and business professionals understand the global Industry 4.0 movement and how it is driving businesses to shift toward digital transformation of conventional industrial and manufacturing processes. Trainees will learn about the basic concepts of the Internet of Things (IoT), how these concepts and underlying technologies have evolved, and how they are being applied to industrial applications.

The next two courses in the series, on the topics of big data and data visualization, are under development and are planned be released later this year. Learn more at Digital Transformation Training Series.
