July 4-5, 2019 - Bangalore, India
To navigate successfully through today’s global wave of digital transformation and make disruptive technologies work for them, manufacturers, municipalities, utilities, and all other organizations will need to roll out just the right mix of technologies at just the right time. They will need to drive and manage change in processes, people, ecosystems, and technologies while putting cybersecurity at the forefront.
Everything is becoming more connected and intelligent. Streetlights, cars, gas turbines, and thermostats stream data. Buildings, refineries, oil platforms, mines, and wind turbines are optimizing asset and operating performance. Parking meters and distributed power grids deliver value to both consumers and operators. Design software can link to additive machines to print parts directly. And it's only the beginning.
How will disruptive technologies change existing products, plants, and cities? Can cybersecurity threats be overcome? How will machine learning, artificial intelligence, and open source solutions transform operations? How will a digitally-enhanced workforce stem the loss of tribal knowledge? How do connected products create opportunities in aftermarket services? What steps can organizations take to foster innovative thinking?
There are countless ways to conduct your digital transformation journey, multiple technologies and suppliers to evaluate, and endless choices to make along the way. Embedded systems, networks, software platforms, augmented reality, and machine learning may play a role as you begin to improve uptime, optimize operating performance, enhance service and the customer experience, and re-think business models.
Join us at ARC’s Seventeenth India Forum to learn more about how digitizing factories, cities, and infrastructure will benefit technology end users and suppliers alike. Discover what your peers are doing today and what steps they are taking in their respective journeys.
