For industrial sectors, it is a time of uncertainty. Market disruption abounds, and change is inevitable. For companies that can make fast, effective decisions, change presents significant opportunity and not just existential risk. Industrial leaders deal with this by leveraging transformational technologies such as generative AI to evolve business models, focusing on competitive and operating excellence, anticipating changes to the workforce and work itself, establishing cyber-resilient operations, and driving energy transition and sustainability into core business strategies.   

Accelerate Industrial and Municipal TransformationBy embracing a digital-first mindset, companies can dismantle constraints that limit their capacity to quickly produce the correct goods and services for the marketplace. Through digitally-driven business agility, leaders succeed and grow, embracing goals of competitive excellence and revenue creation, while delivering production efficiency and operational excellence to protect margins. These companies are integrating digital technology, such as AI and cognitive analytics, digital twins, predictive technologies, and other technologies, throughout their value chains. Design and engineering, production operations, maintenance, logistics, supply chain, business systems, customers, products, and organizational structure are undergoing innovative change as companies adapt to increasingly dynamic market conditions. Leaders understand that attaining business agility, enabled by digital technologies, is critical to responsiveness, resilience, and competitive differentiation. 

Technologies like digital twin, cloud, AI, edge computing, IoT, open automation, additive manufacturing, augmented reality, and more are enabling new business processes and obscuring traditional functional boundaries. OT, IT, and ET teams are growing their skills and capabilities, transforming real-time operations. Executives charged with driving transformation are seizing this moment to innovate and deliver value. Call it digital transformation, smart manufacturing, or Industry 4.0, industrial companies are unlocking business agility to better innovate, transform, and succeed in both the present and future.
