Industry 4.0: The Role of Intelligent Assets
March 12, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Real-Time Data Is The Future Of Smart Manufacturing” (www.forbes.com, Dec. 2019). Businesses, including factories and across the supply chain, can now capture unparalleled amounts of data to create a digital twin of assets, facilities and “things” – known as ‘intelligent assets’ – as the cost of Internet of Things sensors decreases. The impact? Leading companies are leveraging these intelligent assets to drive new business models that enable them to move from responsive to predictive and prescriptive maintenance modes. And they can now move from selling products to delivering a service and viewing their physical assets as business assets. The experts speak: Marty Groover, C5MI: “Discipline equals freedom” (Jocko Willink). Martin Stenzig, Rizing: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it” (Ferris Bueller). Patrick Crampton-Thomas, SAP: “Who Dares Wins” (SAS Motto). Join us for Industry 4.0: The Role of Intelligent Assets.

Thursday at 6 AM Pacific Time/9 AM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Industry 4.0 changes everything. Automation and built-in intelligence make a difference at every step of your business, helping you deliver individualized products and services with the efficiency of mass production.
The digitization of the industrial production environment in factories, plants, and warehouses is driven by technology innovations which appeared in the aftermath of the Internet and cloud revolution: Internet of Things (IoT) connecting devices, machine-to-machine communication, distributed computing, new edge and cloud technologies, times series and big data lakes, machine learning and artificial intelligence, new mobile user experiences (e.g. augmented or virtual reality) to enable digital workers, autonomous systems and vehicles.
Join host Bonnie D. Graham and renowned experts from around the world as they discuss opportunities, challenges, and benefits of transforming and driving business innovation with Industry 4.0.
