A new era of working is starting and AI is a driving force of making this vision reality.

February 19, 2020: 11:20 am – 12:50 pm, Stage B

Successfully shaping change

There are many reasons why digital transformation activities fail more often than they are successful, and these are usually not technology-related. In this session we will talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of the three cornerstones of successfully shaping change: leadership, learning and innovation. Keep calm and transform on.

February 19, 2020: 11:20 am – 2:50 pm, Stage C

Manufacturing

From pilots to scalable solutions: Takeoff strategies for digital manufacturing from the shop floor perspective. What is the vision, setup and evolution of the digital value stream and “Factory of the Future”? What are the mechanisms to move from small IoT pilots to mass-adoption cases? What are the prerequisites and success factors for industrial scaling?

February 19, 2020: 1:50 pm – 2:50 pm, Stage A

Retail

Digitization, IoT and the availability of an abundance of data are opening up new possibilities for the retail industry. In this session, retailers, device manufacturers and service providers will share best practices on how teaming up within a cross-vendor ecosystem helps all market players to realize the real potential of data-driven use cases and business models.

February 19, 2020: 1:50 pm-2:50 pm, Stage B

Logistics

Industrial Scaling: Takeoff strategies for digital value stream from a supply chain perspective. What is the vision, setup and evolution of the digital value stream and “Factory of the Future”?
