Dedham, Massachusetts – October 29, 2019 – The digital transformation of industry, infrastructure, and municipalities is well under way. But many organizations still struggle to justify their related initiatives and/or scale up pilot projects in a meaningful manner. These and other challenges will be addressed at the upcoming 24rd annual ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida, Feb. 3-6, 2020. Keynote and session presenters from industry leaders such as Dow Chemical, Intel, Georgia-Pacific, Covestro, Kohler, Owens Corning, Duke Energy, Audi, City of San Diego, and others will share lessons learned when leveraging data; advanced analytics; machine learning; edge and cloud computing; virtual reality; and other advanced digital technologies to transform their operations in an effective, secure, and cost-justifiable manner.
As in the past, the upcoming Forum will offer interactive cybersecurity and other workshops, high-level technology presentations, end user case study presentations, and numerous opportunities for participants to share ideas and network in a conducive venue.
Digital Transformation Changes Everything
“New digital technologies are converging to empower workers at every level of the organization with new types of data, information, and analytics. These enable end users to make better decisions. In addition, new digitally enabled automation capabilities free users up to do what humans do best: solving business and operational problems,” commented Andy Chatha, CEO of ARC Advisory Group. “But technology alone is not enough. To gain meaningful and sustainable value from their digital transformation initiatives, industrial, infrastructure, and municipal organizations must first address some very real challenges. These include human resource, cultural, organizational, and cybersecurity challenges.
“These are the types of issues that our end user and other speakers will address at the 2020 ARC Industry Forum in Orlando in February and at subsequent ARC Forums around the world,” Mr. Chatha added.
