    Encore: Mass Digitalization in Industrial Manufacturing: What's Next?

    Encore: Mass Digitalization in Industrial Manufacturing: What's Next?

    The buzz: “Technology trends coupled with consumers’ increasing power to demand personalized products are changing the face of manufacturing” (Kevin O’Marah, industryweek.com, 01/14/15). “Software is Everywhere” has begun to resonate with industrial manufacturers worldwide. There’s hardly an industrial machine, piece of equipment, or plant automation system that does not contain a significant amount of software to go along with traditional hardware. How is this mass digitalization disrupting the industrial machinery sector? The experts speak. Sabrina Bartlett, Capgemini: “Simplification is not just for beginners” (Daniel Dennett). Vijay Sundararajan, SAP: “The value of education is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think” (A. Einstein). David Parrish, SAP: “A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be” (Wayne Gretzky).

    The Future of Manufacturing: Industry 4.0 Synergy and the Workforce

    The Future of Manufacturing: Industry 4.0 Synergy and the Workforce

    The buzz: “The Fourth Industrial Revolution is still in its nascent state. But with the swift pace of change and disruption to business and society, the time to join in is now” (Gary Coleman, Deloitte Consulting). Welcome to the future of manufacturing, where companies around the globe are adopting solutions in additive manufacturing, Internet of Things, Machine Learning, plant connectivity, automation, and robotics. But those who focus on one or two innovations at a time will eventually need all innovations to work together. How? The workforce. The experts speak. David R. Brousell, Frost & Sullivan: “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark” (Michelangelo). Mike Edelin, SAP: “The perfect racing car crosses the finish line first and subsequently falls into its component parts” (Ferdinand Porsche).Join us for The Future of Manufacturing: Industry 4.0 Synergy and the Workforce.

    Machine Learning: Disruptive Potential for the Chemical Industry

    The buzz: “Working alone, human researchers are incapable of processing the required amount of data… to achieve the requisite innovations fast enough – particularly given the data overload facing chemical researchers today” (Valimaki). The chemical industry is anticipating unprecedented opportunities by embracing maturing Machine Learning (ML) technology. How? ML is helping to capture, process and analyze Big Data with innovative algorithms that deliver predictive insights and a sustainable competitive advantage. Is your company still on the sidelines? The experts speak. John Santagate, IDC: “The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break” (John Madden). Ravi Joshi, EY: “Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric” (Bertrand Russell). John Harrison, SAP: “HAL 9000: ‘I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that’” (2001: A Space Odyssey). Join us for Machine Learning: Disruptive Potential for the Chemical Industry.

    Software Is Everywhere: Show Us the Money!

    Software Is Everywhere: Show Us the Money!

    The buzz: “Many traditional vendors still see themselves as hardware providers, first and foremost, even though the most valuable component of their offering is the embedded software driving it.” (Frost & Sullivan, 2016] The concept of “Software is Everywhere” is resonating with industrial manufacturers worldwide, as intelligent devices become ubiquitous and software is increasingly embedded in traditional hardware products. Monetizing this software as a commodity creates opportunities as well as challenges for the provider – such as ethics decisions and synchronizing life cycles.While software enables new business models and revenue streams, managing the licensing and term-of-use are crucial. Ready to take it to the bank? The experts speak. Tiest van Gool, Accenture: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” (da Vinci). Michael Klaes, SAP: “HAL 9000: ‘I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that’” (2001: A Space Odyssey, 1968). Join us for Software Is Everywhere: Show Us the Money!
