    How a Digital Transformation Consultancy Helps Customers Identify and Realize Value

    Virtually every manufacturing and processing company worldwide is going through a digital transformation process. However, there are substantial differences in the progress each company has made in their digital transformation journey as well as the rate of that journey. Often, the companies that have made the most digital transformation progress at the fastest rate utilize a Digital Transformation Consultancy.  But what exactly is a Digital Transformation Consultancy? How does the consultancy help companies start their digital transformation journey? What does the consultancy do to help companies realize the value of the Digital Transformation strategy that the consultancy helped them identify and craft? How does the consultancy help companies to quantify Digital Transformation business value? And how does the consultancy help companies transform culture, which is often a bigger challenge than transforming technology?  Please join Rik De Smet, Digital Transformation Consulting Senior Partner, APAC, at Schneider Electric; and Christian Horn, Digital Solutions Engineering Director, APAC, at Schneider Electric; as they discuss these questions and much more in this podcast moderated by Craig Resnick, Vice President of ARC Advisory Group.

    Addressing the significance for value chain optimization

    Addressing the significance for value chain optimization

    The process of value chain optimization remains a journey, not a destination, for manufacturers and processors worldwide. Examples of value chain optimization includes supervisory visualization, where centralized control rooms in single plants are optimized into integrated operations centers that provide an integrated management system for control of entire value chains. Another example includes enterprise visualization, where centers of excellence designed to solve specific problems are optimized into unified operations centers converging IT and OT across the business value chain, aiding in business decision support. But how does value chain optimization occur? What are some of the technical and cultural challenges that need to be overcome? What are some of the sustainability benefits and cybersecurity concerns? And can you achieve even greater value chain optimization by integrating integrated operations centers into unified operations centers? Please join Elias Panasuik, Senior Global Program Director, EcoStruxure Power and Process, Schneider Electric; and Yong The, Global Sales Lead, AVEVA Unified Operations Center; as they discuss  these questions and much more in a podcast moderated by Craig Resnick, Vice President of ARC Advisory Group.
