Still, one thing that connects them is the energy industry’s interest in the compact, battery-­ powered COMPANO 100. In the interview on page 14, we talked to our Sales Partners in the Middle East and Africa about why the compact test set is in such high demand. Our international OMICRON Academy team has developed an entire portfolio of webinars in a short amount of time. So now you can access our learning content anywhere, anytime. Read about what you can learn from more than 45 free webinar recordings on page 21. When you began working in the energy industry, I’m sure you learned about the critical factors that go into reliable condition assessments. E. g., performing tests correctly and evaluating the results with precision. So that’s nothing new. However, what is new is that machine learning makes it possible to compare test results using algorithms based on expert knowledge and large amounts of data. Would you like to know more? Then turn to page 40. As much as machine learning can open new doors for us, knowledgeable experts are just as significant. In the article on page 6, we spoke to Ozan Dayanc. He discovered some rather alarming results when running security assessments with the StationGuard Intrusion Detection System (IDS). Learn more about Ozan’s journey and how to avoid the most common security risks. As you know, we love discussing a wide variety of topics with our customers and colleagues.
