The Future of Manufacturing with Edge & Industrial Analytics
The journey to Industry 4.0 has rapidly progressed over the past year – due to wide-scale innovations around the convergence of analytics, AI and IoT – bringing us closer than ever to delivering intelligent decision-making and productivity for the manufacturing industry. While the industry is still largely in the early stages of adoption, there is a massive transformative opportunity to bring Industry 4.0 to scale across industrial and manufacturing operations. Despite challenges, COVID-19 has also accelerated Industry 4.0 adoption, as manufacturers look to Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) digital capabilities to navigate through this moment. Christine can offer insight into the future of Industry 4.0 and how leaders can implement best practices to transform their operations, as well as her predictions for how the broad ecosystem of industrial players will deploy intelligent edge solutions in 2021.
