The Information Driven Enterprise in a Connected World

Join me at the ARC Industry Forum Europe 2015 –  March 4-5, Amsterdam, The Netherlands – where this year the theme is ‘The Information Driven Enterprise in a Connected World’.

“New and emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, predictive analytics, wireless, additive manufacturing, modular and mobile production, cloud computing, mobility, and 3D visualization are beginning to disrupt and radically change the way industrial enterprises do business.  Departing from the characteristic industry prudent innovation, leading companies now recognize that they must embrace new information, automation, production, and supply chain technologies to maintain a competitive edge.” (Arc Forum Executive Team)

The Forum is aimed at CEOs, COOs, and Presidents, CIOs and CTOs, and I shall be hosting a couple of sessions on the agenda:

The first day I’ll be driving a session on Collaboration and Organization, and the second day a plenary workshop on Industry 4.0, Industrial IoT, Dig Data, Analytics and the cloud:

Wow, one of the best Cisco Live events yet: Cisco has its mojo back (analyst comments!); attendees engaging in great dialogue, and Cisco and Partner Presenters and demonstrations better than ever!

The keynote sessions are always packed, and with the big-name executives on show that’s hardly surprising. I, for one, was also impressed at how well attended the breakout sessions were too. The World of solutions was packed a lot of the time as well, with huge interest in the Internet of Things pavilion.

There was a welcome surprise in store for attendees of the session number BRKIND-1229, on “Cisco Industrial Solutions and Best Practices for Manufacturing”, as Chet Namboodri had arranged for an exclusive live Business Industry over Telepresence demo – piped in from the west coast all the way to Orlando – the world is getting smaller folks!
