Workshop: How to transform towards a data-driven industry
2nd Nordic IndTech Industry Data workshop
This workshop is a digital meeting. February 3rd, 18.00 – 20.00 CET
Welcome to a workshop about how to transform a process industry or automation company towards using a more data driven approach. A data-driven approach to drive efficient and responsive production and manufacturing systems is clearly the way forward, but to do so companies need to change the way they work and collaborate. This requires new alliances, new business models and new strategies and methods. In this workshop, forefront industry from the Nordics’ and technology providers from Silicon Valley will ideate around these topics.
Industry companies are now in a better position than ever before to incorporate data into their daily decision-making activities in a meaningful and productive way, creating a more sustainable future. In this second workshop, in a series of activities within the stronghold Nordic IndTech, Nordic industry companies will be given the opportunity to ideate, learn, network, and create partnerships with technology frontiers from Silicon Valley. You will also be able to listen to two keynote speakers sharing best practices based on their knowledge and experience from transforming companies into data driven industry production companies, the benefits and opportunities, what challenges they overcome, and how.
Important decisions that impact process industry and automation should be based on facts, not guesses, wishes, theories or opinions. Today’s emerging technology helps by enabling both people and the equipment to collect and process the facts they need to achieve better results.
The accelerated deployment of technologies such as low-cost sensors and their connection to the internet in combination with high-speed internet (5G) has created a lot of hype about the future of process industry and manufacturing. The Internet of Things (IoT) and its application of big data and analytics has led to the creation of the next generation industries. This involves using data to reduce costs through new age sales and operations planning, dramatically enhanced productivity, supply chain and distribution optimization, and new types of after-sales services with increased knowledge about the end-users and their needs.
Who are you?
You are probably working on a daily basis with strategy related questions, with an interest in industry data analytics and are open for starting interesting collaborations and/or strategic alliances within this field.
About Nordic IndTech
This Nordic IndTech Talk is the second out of a series of events within the Nordic Innovation House Silicon Valley stronghold Nordic IndTech organized by Automation Region and PiiA (the strategic innovation program Process industrial IT & Automation). The aim is to decrease the gap between Nordic world leading process industry and automation companies and tech frontiers from Silicon Valley creating a more sustainable next generation automation together. By combining need owners with automation and tech companies, our goal is to support the industry in the next step of digitalisation.
There is currently a strong interest globally to learn how heavy industry from Sweden works with innovation. PiiA, Automation Region, and Vinnova therefore started a new focus area 2019 in Sweden called Indtech and have under 2020 decided to internationalize this area in collaboration with Nordic Innovation House Silicon Valley and our fellow Nordic countries in Silicon Valley calling it Nordic Indtech with a series of activities planned under 2020 – 2021 under the Nordic Indtech umbrella.
