ctrlX developR – EPISODE #7 Securtity
Security is one of the most mentioned topics in our series 1 of ctrlX developR. For sure an indicator for its relevance. In episode 7 Christian welcomes our Master of Security, the natural enemy of all the hackers out there, Alexander. He points out why, for example, remote maintenance became more important with Industry 4.0 and how we solve this challenge with ctrlX AUTOMATION. Making everything secure was always piecemeal as there was no holistic security concept in former automation platforms.
ctrlX developR – EPISODE #6 ctrlX World - Partner Apps
ctrlX AUTOMATION underlines the openness of the system with ctrlX World. In episode 6 we invited our partner Thomas Hepp from Mirasoft to speak with Johannes and Christian about the numerous possibilities of the platform. For Mirasoft it was especially important to offer their own customers a solution that is intuitive and can be used immediately - without lengthy training. The CEO and developer presents the App AnyViz, which is already available via the ctrlX App Store.
Johannes also explains how it is even possible to become a partner and integrate own apps.
ctrlX developR – EPISODE #5 SDK
Who of you has ever used a SDK (Software Development Kit) for an industrial control? As far as we know, this is rather unusual. But of course not for ctrlX AUTOMATION, because we have developed the most open system on the market. And with our SDK we enable developers to program and integrate exactly the apps they need for their individual functions and requirements.
Johannes and Christian show you everything about the SDK in episode 5.
