Tridium’s CTO, Kevin Smith possesses advanced and distinguished expertise in the fields of Cybersecurity, Semantics, Analytics, and Software Development. When Kevin Smith talks, people listen — and for good reason. That’s why we were delighted when Kevin joined ControlTrends in summarizing DAY 2 of Niagara Summit 2018. Kevin touches all the new Niagara bases as he hits this interview out of the park (his affable style of engagement almost outdoes his technical prowess). The Niagara Framework and team are strong, getting stronger, and committed under great leadership. The Niagara Community and ecosystem are growing world-wide and leading the way with innovation. Many videos and interviews to follow.
