About Dr. Soley
Dr. Soley is responsible for the vision and direction for two of the most well-known consortia in the technology standards industry as well as for the Industrial Internet. He joined OMG as Technical Director in 1989 where he was instrumental in the adoption of the original CORBA specification. He also led the way in the development of vertical market standards and modeling as early as 1996, which led to the Unified Modeling Language and Model Driven Architecture that followed. In 2014, Dr. Soley became Executive Director of the newly-founded Industrial Internet Consortium, which will be featured at the No Magic World Symposium.
Industrial Internet Consortium
The Industrial Internet Consortium brings together the organizations and technologies that accelerate Industrial Internet growth. Small and large companies belong to the organization, including innovators, market leaders, researchers, universities and governments. At the No Magic World Symposium, Dr. Soley will explain how the Industrial Internet Consortium is:
- Driving innovation by creating new use cases and test beds using real-world applications;
- Defining and developing a reference architecture and frameworks related to interoperability;
- Influencing standards on a global level;
- Facilitating methods for exchanging ideas, practices, lessons and insights on a real-world level;
- Building confidence in security through new and innovative programs.
Membership includes such industry giants as Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Samsung Electronics and General Electric.
In addition to providing insight into the goals of the Industrial Internet Consortium, Dr. Soley will present the keynote address on the afternoon of Monday, June 8, 2015. The keynote is titled “Standards: OMG Looking Ahead” and will discuss how OMG views standards adoption as the starting point rather than the end of the process. Dr. Soley will present information on how his organization is using industry standards to improve program delivery.
