ARC’s Six­teenth In­dia Fo­rumEm­pha­sizes on Dig­i­ti­za­tion

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -


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.

Chem­i­cal In­dus­try Di­gest was the me­dia part­ner for the event.

Clari­ant Chem­i­cals closes Nan­desari Unit


Chem­i­cals In­dia has per­ma­nently closed a man­u­fac­tur­ing unit at Nan­desari, Vado­dra. The op­er­a­tions have been con­sol­i­dated at the com­pany’s ex­ist­ing unit at Ra­nia, Panchma­hal, Gu­jarat, and the clo­sure does not have any ad­verse ef­fect on the op­er­a­tions of the com­pany.

Mean­while, the com­pany has en­tered into an agree­ment to as­sign the land and sheds of the Nan­desari unit to Sud Chemie In­dia Pri­vate Ltd. The com­pany has re­ceived ap­provals from the au­thor­i­ties, in­clud­ing Gu­jarat In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (GIDC), for the deal.
