HotTakes: A Digital Mindset Will Drive Manufacturing Innovation

Hotwire Global

Digitalization has and continues to transform all areas of the economy, and while manufacturing has long been great and producing data and using it become more efficient, what comes next will be different for the sector.  We’re in the midst of the 4th industrial revolution, where connected technologies, data, and analytics are driving smart manufacturing, where innovation isn’t just about furthering efficiency and productivity, but new automated workflows and dramatically impactful innovation.

This is Industry 4.0.

In this HotTakes episode, we chat with Brenda Discher, SVP of Strategy and Marketing, at Siemens Digital Industries Software. Brenda shares recent examples of how Siemens customers have adopted a digital mindset to reframe their business models for innovation. And, she shares her thoughts on why becoming a digital enterprise is no longer an option, but a business imperative.

Topics discussed:

  • What is Industry 4.0, and, how has Siemens adapted its own business for digitalization
  • How can more manufacturing companies adapt a digital mindset to open the door to greater efficiency and innovation – from an automotive company retrofitting to build ventilators in the wake of Covid-19, to a valve manufacturer rethinking their business model leveraging the IIoT
  • How technology and software providers can act as a digital transformation catalyst for their customers
