ARC’s Sixteenth India Forum Focuses on the Digitization Imperative – Part 1

By Sharada Prahladrao

ARC Report Abstract


ARC Advisory Group held the company's sixteenth India Forum for the process and discrete industries, from July 5-6, 2018 in Bangalore, India.  This year’s India Forum, Digitizing and Securing Industry, Infrastructure, and Cities, attracted over 250 delegates.

Last year, the core theme was digital transformation.  This year, we’ve moved to the next level of how digitization can help industries, infrastructure, and cities grow in a secure, collaborative environment. As became obvious during Forum sessions and networking discussions among delegates, end users, and solution providers, the transition must be well strategized and charted.

Today, companies are digitizing business processes and exploiting the increasing convergence between operational technology (OT), information technology (IT), and engineering technology (ET) on the plant floor. Governments around the world are supporting manufacturing growth initiatives.  These emerging business models allow manufacturers to collaborate more effectively to achieve agility and sustain a competitive edge.

Forum Topics Cover Digitization

The Forum session topics covered industry and infrastructure moving towards digitization; automation trends, cybersecurity; smart technologies and smart cities; and several end user experiences. Lively and thought-provoking question and answer sessions with the speakers followed each session.  Part 1 of this two-part ARC Insight will focus on the first day's proceedings; Part 2 will focus on the second day’s proceedings.
