21st Annual ARC Forum

Panel Description:
Digital platforms are the backbone for industrial companies to effectively leverage intelligent connected products, network communications, software, and analytics to improve up-time and optimize operating performance. They typically support advanced technologies such as cognitive computing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence which power much of the digital transformation. Customers benefit from smarter products, new service and operating models, optimized production and maintenance techniques, and new approaches to design and sourcing.
