IA Extends Online Training Courses Through 2020 Bobby McKenzie Wed, 06/10/2020 - 14:53
Around the world and across the country, we are seeing organizations respond and adapt to the challenges of COVID-19. Inductive Automation has responded to the challenges of social distancing and travel restrictions with online offerings, like making ICC 2020 a fully digital conference. For the Training team, this has meant finding a new way to teach our Ignition classes, since many companies have travel bans in place. This situation certainly won’t last forever but it has caused us to rethink how we can deliver our training.
Pitch Like a Pro: Learn to Sell Ignition with Our Latest Video Series Lauren Walters Wed, 05/27/2020 - 10:26
As a company, Inductive Automation has always prioritized a strong relationship with our integrators. Because Inductive Automation President and CEO Steve Hechtman got his start as an integrator, IA has a unique appreciation for this group. We know that integrators not only have to be extremely gifted technically, but they also have to be hard-working, focused, able to take on many different problems at the same time, and quick problem-solvers. In addition to these areas of expertise, they also have the challenging job of selling their services to customers. Sales might come easily to some people, but for many, it can be a challenging process, even to those who are incredibly gifted technically.
ICC 2020 is Going Digital Doug Dudley Wed, 05/06/2020 - 12:11
Due to the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, the Ignition Community Conference will not be held as a physical event this year. Instead, Inductive Automation will host a more streamlined, totally digital version of the ICC on September 15, 2020, on our conference website (link). This year’s virtual ICC will include the keynote address from Inductive Automation’s leadership team, a live-streamed panel discussion with our VP of technology and director of software engineering, video case studies of many amazing real-world Ignition projects, and several short presentations from experts and thought leaders from around the Ignition community, all for free!
