This user group is subtitled “Get More from One.” The motif and metaphor is a child’s folding block toy, which opens up with different views of the enterprise, based on how you fold the blocks. There are views for Triconex, there are views for Sim-Sci Esscor, for Avantis, and for Foxboro…but no view for Wonderware. Wonderware is being mentioned, but there is virtually no participation from Wonderware in this “drawing together, becoming one from many” exposition.
Paul Miller, Invensys’ PR guru, opined that it was because Wonderware was sort of independently run under Mike Bradley, and they have their own user conference. But all the brands here have always had their own user conferences too, until now.
Something seems not right. Is Wonderware a selloff?
