Industrial IOT in the Digital Era

If we took one thing away from our time at Hannover Messe this year, it’s that disruption is the new normal for manufacturers in today’s Industry 4.0 era. With this disruption, comes new opportunities, enabled by Digital Transformation, and there is concrete progress being made by manufacturers around the world in realizing the benefits from Industry 4.0 as we see it being very real today.

How are you approaching Digital Transformation? Have you imagined how digitization using IoT can enable new revenue streams for your business? Would you like to transform your production floor into a Factory of the Future using Digital Twins? Is your connectivity from the device all the way to the cloud secure & compliant?

Join us in Brussels on either Oct 9th or Oct 10th 2017 for a full-day executive briefing to explore what’s next in Digital Transformation in Manufacturing, focusing primarily on how the Intelligent Cloud and Intelligent Edge is changing Industrial IOT, transforming an organization’s capabilities in:

  • The Connected Factory: Getting to predictive maintenance
  • Connected Field Service: Optimizing resources in a customer-centric business
  • Transformative Business models: From manufacturing to a service economy

This briefing will explore the current state of the transformation through customer examples, with updates from Microsoft regarding its portfolio of Industrial IOT solutions and platforms, creating the space for dialog amongst industry leaders. We look forward to welcoming you to the Microsoft EBC in Brussels as we seek to ‘Empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more’!
