iRINGToday is an online community site dedicated to keeping the industry up-to-date and informed about the latest developments, news, and events surrounding ISO 15926 and iRING (ISO 15926 Realtime Network Interoperability Grid). iRINGToday site content is specifically geared toward a business audience and explores the business value that can be realized from industry-wide adoption of the 15926 standard and iRING protocols and tools.
If you are an executive or manager involved in the capital projects supply chain of designing, engineering, constructing, and operating the world’s infrastructure, then this site is for you. As industry momentum continues to build around data interoperability, it’s important that you understand the solutions being developed and how to leverage them for competitive advantage. The business value of addressing data interoperability is indisputable and can save billions of dollars industry-wide in capital and operating costs while significantly lowering project risk and improving safety.
iRINGToday compliments other ISO 15926 information sources available on the Internet, which are highly technical in nature and designed for data modelers and software engineers. iRINGToday will highlight the business value of solving the interoperability problem for each participant in the capital projects ecosystem, as well as aggregate other useful sources of information for those who want to learn more.
For example, our Resources page contains links to relevant sites, published books, industry presentations, videos, and more. We will also publish executive interviews with the thought leaders from all segments (EPCs, suppliers, software vendors, owners, operators) to share their vision and best practices. In addition, we will publish thought leadership materials (such as white papers) that we think provide useful insights. iRINGToday is here to inform the industry and is vendor independent, so there will be no advertising or promotion of products or services on the site.
We welcome comments, suggestions and, of course, submissions to the site for publication. Enjoy!
