Insights Around Disruption,
Transformation, and the Role of AI:
For a long time, manufacturing has been on the frontlines of technology disruption, helping to fuel
growth, enable agility, and redefine efficiencies. It is exciting to think about how much this industry has
created—not just innovative products, but new jobs, new global supply chains, new business processes and even new economies.
Today, we are at a historical crossroads. New levels of connectivity, virtually unlimited compute power
offered by cloud computing, and advanced technologies like IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, mixed reality, digital twins, blockchain and more, are enabling us to process and reason over more and more data on a much larger scale, opening up new value networks.
