Digital transformation: opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution
Which skills to manage change: case studies and experiences of companies in the food sector
The 'digital transformation' is a wind that has invested companies in all sectors, including Food & Beverage. The characteristic of the fourth industrial revolution is speed and we need ever more qualified skills to manage change and contribute to business growth. 4.0 technologies can and must contribute to increase efficiency, speed decision-making and enable the creation of new products and services. But technologies alone are not enough: expertise is the key to transforming the new opportunities offered by technology into a powerful tool for business growth. In a scenario where the data are the 'new oil', ERP, BI, EPM and PLM solutions are essential to give continuity to businesses that are increasingly characterized by being 'disruptive'. What can companies do? Aggregate enabling technologies with the support of partners able to support them in a path of intelligent innovation. The event will be an opportunity to understand what skills are needed to make the "4.0 enterprise" take off. We will analyze successful cases of companies, both Italian and non, that have been able to ride the "wind" of the digital transformation. The event will be opened by Marco Taisch, Professor of Advanced & Sustainable Manufacturing at the Politecnico di Milano, engaged in the study of technological trends for the European Commission, member of the board of the European Factory of the Future Research Association (EFFRA), as well as Scientific Chairman of the World Manufacturing Forum.
