Annual ARC Industry Forum Asia
Accelerating Digital Transformation in a Post-COVID World

July 13-15, 2021 - Online

The future is already here.  Discover strategies and stories from the digital front lines at the ARC Industry Forum Asia.

Propelled by recent global health and economic crises, industrial innovation is accelerating.  Leading companies had progressed along their digital transformation journey and were able to quickly adapt to the changed business reality.   They supported numbers of remote connected workers far earlier than expected, and leveraged wearables and other tech to support the remaining frontline workers in the plant.  With what they have learned, they are now re-thinking how to manage operations using shared data, analytics, distributed work, and digital twins.  The industry has passed a tipping point, having seen the power of disruptive technologies to transform business operations and competitive strategies, improve resilience, reduce costs, and better serve customers.  It's full speed ahead. 

Accelerate Industrial and Municipal TransformationMegatrends like re-shoring, sustainability, and upskilling are driving accelerated change, while technologies like cloud, machine learning, edge computing, IoT, cybersecurity technology, additive manufacturing, augmented reality, autonomous assets, and more are enabling new business processes and obscuring traditional functional boundaries.  OT, IT, and ET teams are growing their skills and capabilities and transforming real-time operations.  Seeking to be among the winners in the new normal, executives charged with driving transformation are seizing this moment to innovate and deliver real value.  Call it digital transformation, smart manufacturing, smart cities, or Industry 4.0, there is a rush to innovate, transform, and accelerate the future. 

Is your organization prepared to deal with the new normal? 

Join us at the Annual ARC Industry Forum Asia to learn more about how transforming factories, cities, and infrastructure will benefit technology end users and suppliers alike.  Discover what your peers and industry leaders are doing today and what steps they are taking to prepare for the future.  Programs will be conducted in both Japanese and English.
