Overcoming Digital Transformation’s Flaws for 2022 and Beyond

July 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things was supposed to improve forecasting, reduce supply chain snarls and let manufacturers better plan production, but the overwhelming challenges of the pandemic and its aftermath show how far the industry still needs to go. Many manufacturers who had started their digital manufacturing journeys weren’t far enough along to reap benefits, especially as it became clear how difficult it was to find the right talent to drive projects and integrate new systems with legacy equipment.

The good news? There are ways of tackling the major roadblocks to digital transformation, and it’s not an either/or situation. Companies can transform while dealing with the daily challenges caused by rising inflation, continued material shortages and unpredictable business cycles.

Join us for this IndustryWeek-hosted webinar where we will present the results of our research from The Critical Path to Digital Manufacturing: State of the Market Report. We will discuss the state of the digital manufacturing market and present advice on how you can digitally transform your manufacturing business through the adoption of the Digital Core, Digital Ecosystem and Digital Edge strategy to achieve cost efficiencies and scalable growth. We will discuss:

  • The top manufacturing IT, Business, and App/Network challenges
  • Improving the digital ecosystem, core and edge
  • Effectively leveraging vendor expertise
