Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “In the past 50 years, organizations have gone from thinking about a sequential, linear series of steps—design, plan, source, make, deliver—to networks of dynamic, interconnected processes and systems.” www2.deloitte.com. With sensor technology prices dropping, manufacturers are designing and delivering more IoT-enabled smart products and assets, and with it, the adoption of Industry 4.0. Unparalleled amounts of data are available across the supply chain, from manufacturing through logistics and the operations of products and assets. This information is leveraged by machine learning, artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to drive business decisions and new business models. Westernacher’s Phil Azanov, SAP’s Elvia Wallis, SCHÄFER WERKE Group’s Michael Wehler, and Döhler Group’s Pierre Wiese discuss how technology is enabling and driving Industry 4.0 and making supply chains a competitive advantage. Join us for Industry 4.0: IoT and Technologies Bringing It to Life.

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.
