ARC’s Sixteenth India ForumEmphasizes on Digitization
Advisory Group conducted its sixteenth India Forum for the process and discrete industries, titled Digitizing and Securing Industry, Infrastructure, and Cities from July 5-6, 2018 in Bangalore, India. The forum attracted over 250 delegates. ARC is a global Technology Market Research firm having digital expertise in advisory, consulting and market data analytics.
The theme for ARC’s India forum was how digitization can help industries, infrastructure and cities grow in a secure, collaborative environment. Although digitization is an imperative to succeed in a competitive world, the transition must be well strategized and charted. The transition aspect of digitization was discussed through extensive networking among delegates, end users, and solution providers.
The session topics in the event covered industry and infrastructure moving towards digitization, automation trends, cybersecurity, smart technologies and smart cities, and several end user experiences.
G. Ganapathiraman, Vice President and General Manager, ARC Advisory Group, India welcomed the delegates and afterwards, several industry experts presented their thoughts on digitization.
Some of the presentations from the forum were:
• Digital Transformation of Industry by Sal Spada, ARC Advisory Group
• How Digital Is Transforming Industries by K.S. Viswanathan, NASSCOM
• Unlocking the Potential with Digitalization/IIoT by Sameer Prakash, Siemens
• Urban Infrastructure in the Government Sector and Digital Lifestyle by Mu ra le ed ha ran Manning al, Kerala
• Unleashing the Potential of Industry 4.0 by AnkurGoyal, Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions
ARC’s forum drove home the point that in a connected world automation and keeping abreast of new technologies catalyzes industrial growth. The time has come to migrate from the old to the new - digital, collaborative enterprises mark the way ahead. Reactive analysis/maintenance is obsolete - the spotlight is on predictive and preventive analysis.
