The transformation is underway. Discover strategies and stories from the digital front lines, powered by ARC's research. Disruptive new technologies and methodologies have already gained a foothold in most organizations. Cloud, Machine Learning, Edge Computing, IoT, Cybersecurity Best Practices, Additive Manufacturing, Augmented Reality, DevOps, and more are enabling new business processes and obscuring traditional functional boundaries. OT, IT, and ET teams are growing their skills and capabilities and transforming real-time operations. Executives charged with driving transformation are seizing this moment to innovate and deliver real value. How will disruptive technologies change existing products, plants, and cities? Can cybersecurity threats be overcome? How will machine learning, artificial intelligence, and open source solutions transform operations? How will a digitally-enhanced workforce stem the loss of tribal knowledge? How do connected products create opportunities in aftermarket services? What steps can organizations take to foster innovative thinking? There are countless ways to conduct your digital transformation journey, many technologies and suppliers to evaluate, and endless choices to make along the way. Embedded systems, networks, software platforms, augmented reality, and machine learning may play a role as you begin to improve uptime, optimize operating performance, enhance service, and re-think business models.
