Alex shares his journey from working on integration projects in consulting fresh out of college, to founding UMH and building an open source alternative to the offerings from incumbent vendors. He breaks down the role of the open source software movement in manufacturing, how the Unified Namespace architecture compares to the traditional ISA-95 model, and how IT can best enable OT to solve problems. Plus, he shares his vision for how microservice-based MES solutions can disrupt the existing monolithic applications.
