ARC EUROPEAN INDUSTRY FORUM 2019: Driving Digital Transformation in Industry and Cities

By David Humphrey

Industry Trends

To navigate today’s tidal wave of digital transformation and to make disruptive technologies work, manufacturers, municipalities, utilities, and all other organizations need to roll out the right mix of technologies at just the right time. This means driving and managing change in processes, people, ecosystems, and technologies while keeping safety and cybersecurity at the forefront.

Everything is becoming more connected and intelligent- streetlights, cars, gas turbines, and thermostats are streaming data. We are optimizing asset and operating performance of buildings, refineries, oil platforms, mines, and wind turbines. Smart meters and distributed power grids are delivering value to both consumers and operators. Design software links to 3D printing machines to print complex parts directly. And this is only the beginning.
