Manufacturers have long relied on advanced digital technologies that enable remote monitoring and assistance to protect workers in 4D — dull, dirty, dangerous and distant — environments. While no one expected this would one day include the effects of a healthcare crisis, it’s more important than ever today to remotely execute tasks that keep essential facilities operational while also protecting workers. Confronted with the harsh realities of fewer employees able to work in the traditional hands-on manner, companies have been forced to adopt newer, better and more productive methods — remote and virtual technology tools — and will never look back.

Can Today’s Challenges Be a Catalyst for Positive Change?
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our world, affecting our day-to-day lives in ways we never could have imagined even a few short months ago.

More than three quarters of large companies today have a “data-hungry” AI initiative under way — projects involving neural networks or deep-learning systems trained on huge repositories of data. Yet, many of the most valuable data sets in organizations are quite small: Think kilobytes or megabytes rather than exabytes. Because this data lacks the volume and velocity of big data, it’s often overlooked, languishing in PCs and functional databases and unconnected to enterprise-wide IT innovation initiatives. Read More
The California bullet train between San Diego and San Francisco. Lockheed Martin’s Joint Strike Fighter program. Berlin’s Brandenburg Airport. Apple’s AirPower wireless charging pad. These are just a few examples of projects that suffered severe schedule delays and cost overruns, or that were unable to deliver on their promised scope. Read More
Most marketing executives will agree data-centric strategies are the way of the future. But we’ve also seen a steep learning curve for implementation. How can marketing leaders successfully navigate a large-scale operational shift from opinion-based to data-driven decision making? Read More
We talk a lot about key stakeholders in digital transformation. Usually, that means a discussion about members of the C-suite, or other leaders and executives that need to “walk the walk” so employees will get onboard with the change digital transformation inevitably brings. But what about your Board members? For digital transformation to be, well, transformational, board members will need to be fully engaged—and informed—regarding tech advancement, as well. The good news: what your board needs to know about tech isn’t complicated. And it shouldn’t be a hard concept to sell. Read More
