Whether or not you have joined the Industry 4.0 race for innovation, one thing is clear – stagnation and inaction are not an option. Regardless of the size of your organization and digital strategy maturity (or lack thereof), you simply can’t afford sitting back and watching how the fourth industrial revolution plays out for the rest of the manufacturing world. In order to secure your competitive edge and meet shifting customer expectations, you must start innovating today. Otherwise, you are risking being left out in this game of evolution and natural selection.
Bart Talloen is a globally recognized Industry 4.0 expert who will help you make sense of the evolving Industry 4.0 trends and what you should be doing today in order to become a manufacturer of tomorrow.

These days, most manufacturers are focusing in on digital transformation, but many lack a clear roadmap to success. Some struggle with how to get started, others grapple with important concerns around network infrastructure and security, while still others ponder how to leverage a seemingly overwhelming amount of data. We’re all eager to achieve the game-changing results that await us as we change how our products are designed, manufactured and supported. But getting there can be an intense journey that will most assuredly require a steadfast vision and a commitment to persevere. John will discuss why many initial efforts are slow to deliver meaningful results and how to ultimately realize the significantly impactful outcomes a comprehensive digital transformation should deliver. One well-known quote advises: “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and, suddenly, you’re doing the impossible.”
