Free IndustryWeek-hosted Webinar: Transforming Industrial Businesses with the Internet of Things, June 22nd

An IndustryWeek-hosted webinar, sponsored by Genpact Research Institute

When: Wednesday, June 22, 1:00pm CDT — 1 hour (Live Webinar-No cost)

The Industrial Internet of things (IIoT) is set to revolutionize entire industries, from high tech (including computers and electronics) to medical technology, aerospace, and heavy equipment manufacturing and generally any complex manufacturing environment.

According to the latest research from Genpact Research Institute and IndustryWeek, in collaboration with GE and the Industrial Internet Consortium the majority of organizations are convinced of the opportunities IIoT represents, and are allocating resources in ever-increasing amounts to adopt the technologies of IIoT. However, the research reveals investment alone will not be enough to generate tangible business impact and meet such high expectations.

Join us for this expert discussion and review of newly-released survey results to understand which challenges are top of mind for your peers, and how you can leverage that information to prepare for business transformation leveraging the Industrial internet.

Key takeaways include:

  • Get an exclusive look at key industry trends and survey results from senior manufacturing executives
  • Find out why there is great disparity in the projected impact of implementing IIoT as well the hurdles in the way
  • See how working cross-functionally — across IT, analytics, and business groups — can help align business goals with implementation strategy and drive significantly higher impact
