Digital Transformation in Manufacturing: Where are we going now?

The future is uncertain. Political volatility, slowing demand, and disruptions to foreign trade are just a few of the trends that manufacturers face. In this environment, it’s important to focus your investment on initiatives that will boost the bottom line and improve efficiency.

Join us in Brussels on either June 13 or June 14 for a full-day workshop to explore what’s next in Digital Transformation in Manufacturing – the path from vision to execution, the technology enablers and the new business rules, how the Cloud changes everything, and how new data privacy laws will impact manufacturers across Europe.

A year ago at Hannover Messe 2016, many manufacturers showed how they were pursuing systems of intelligence to drive transformation and growth. A year later, there is real progress being made, and for many organizations a digital strategy is becoming the strategy.

This series of invitation-only workshops will build on those stories, exploring the current state of transformation through customer examples, with technology updates from both Microsoft and Rockwell, together 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’!
