Think Beyond Adoption: Think Scalability

A webinar about how enterprises can approach scaling up operations

11 AM PDT, Wednesday, June 24, 2020

When an enterprise adopts drone technology for safer and more efficient operations, it needs a clear roadmap to start its drone program smoothly and scale it up easily. Companies need systems to monitor maintenance and upgrades, manage and store data, standardize training and protocols, coordinate command centers and traffic management, and integrate drone operations with established business processes.

Sonal Baid, Product Manager at DJI, spoke with Nick Dryer, Manager UAS Field Operations at BNSF, Daniel Bruce, CAIO at Vinsa, and Alain Pimentel, Lead Engineer at DJI, about the challenges organizations face as they scale their drone programs and explored learnings and potential solutions that the industry has to offer.

Here’s what was discussed:

  • What does scalability mean to enterprises?
  • What are the challenges?
  • What are some existing solutions?
  • How can custom solutions play a role?
  • Open Q&A period
