Webinar: IoT Technology for Enhanced Environmental Compliance

February 28, 2018 @ 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Pacific

NAEM Webinar - IoT

Cost: FREE for Members, $99 for Non-Members

One of the fastest growing trends in technology is the Internet of Things (IoT) and other cloud platforms. This technology potentially has a huge impact on how EHS&S professionals manage water quality, air emissions and other key environmental performance indicators for data monitoring. The deployment of IoT and similar technologies utilizes several automated sensors, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and mobile connected devices which generates masses of real time data. This gives further insight, but also poses a challenge of an influx of loads of unstructured data from different sources.
