Finally Boosting Business Cases for DX: How Manufacturers Approach the "Next Normal" with Digital Industrial Platforms and Collaboration Strategies
This IDC Webcast describes how manufacturers in Europe are addressing the challenges brought about by COVID-19 through closer collaboration with peers and partners in their ecosystems as well as leveraging digital platforms. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on manufacturing is long term and far reaching. Measures to handle the negative impacts of COVID-19 will not stop after implementing social distancing in factories or strict cost management to ensure financial stability. Instead, manufacturers are already preparing for the "next normal." Topics addressed will be among others:
- How does collaboration with peers and partners help to scale industrial innovations in the context of Industry 4.0 faster?
- How can industry-specific and analytics-powered business-to-business (B2B) marketplaces help manufacturers to make supply chain operations more resilient and help to gain efficiency gains in B2B transactions?
- How can digital industrial platforms and IT/OT convergence help to improve performance of shop-floor operations?
- How can data be monetized in collaborative manufacturing ecosystems?
