Accelerating Digital Transformation: Moving Forward in Times of Crisis
Things seem uncertain for many industries, and manufacturing is no exception. COVID-19 has re-shaped the way we do business, form relationships, and drive a competitive edge.
The need for Digital Transformation has never been more apparent.
The Manufacturing Leadership Forum™ delivers real-world insight from those who have successfully implemented Digital Transformation programs, achieved organizational culture changes, and lead through times of crisis and uncertainty.
Dr. Lloyd Colegrove | Dow
Get your data house in order “now” to take advantage of what your data has to offer in the future.
Lack of domain knowledge (AI supplier) and culture (AI customer) are the two key challenges to artificial intelligence progress in the chemical industry. The challenges to AI in chemical process and continuous manufacturing are rooted in fundamentals that neither the suppliers of AI technology appreciate, nor their customers necessarily feel they can monetize. Ultimately there is a software grave yard filled with monuments to good ideas that didn’t pay off for either partner.
Digital Transformation in data and applications of data science is messy and even some successes look like failures in the C-suite. The purpose of this talk is to unabashedly explain this problem, and how a powerful, but simple, approach is the first step on the digital transformation journey.
