Synopsis

The digital world isn’t coming; it’s here already. And companies not embracing that reality are rapidly being left behind.

Manufacturing is no different. Improving operational efficiency, quality and speed while reducing costs remains at the forefront of R&D investment for manufacturers. Embracing digital transformation is increasingly seen as a means of both achieving those goals and enabling greater business innovation. Digital is not about technology per se; it’s about becoming more agile, innovative, competitive and better-equipped for the future.

Change can be hard. What are the challenges your company must address to remain competitive in a world of rapid and constant change? How can your company leverage digital technologies to help speed innovation, improve operational efficiency, connect with customers, open new markets and close the talent gap? And how do you transform and scale your business to adapt to changing markets, technologies and competition?

Join us for an exclusive “Meet the Boss” dinner with the “Power of Three” alliance of Microsoft, Accenture and Avanade, where you will hear from peers and industry experts about how you can successfully incorporate digital technologies into your business. Understand manufacturing industry technology trends and digital transformation customer journeys, direct from Power of Three thought leaders. Discover business practices that are transforming best-in-class manufacturing firms, and enabling them to unlock innovation, reduce costs and close the talent gap.
