After buzzing Industry 4.0 all over the media by all OT and IT experts, today, a few key concepts seem to unveil the potential that the industry believes is behind Industry 4.0. These include: Smart Machines, Smart Factory, cyber physical systems, Everything-as-a-Service and a few technologies like OPC UA, cloud and data analytics. Clearly, they are the innovation drivers and must-haves for every vendor of automation products that want to be recognized as leaders or challengers. Sooner or later they will become standards and used by followers and niche players, but the key question for the market of automation suppliers is not who is first in developing and providing all the nice concepts and technologies, but who is creating and combining them in the right way so that they can be turned into new revenue streams. We keep in mind that competitive advantages can be achieved through increasing operational efficiency, but the better way is through strategic uniqueness. Companies which ar

Today, the average person has instant access to an immeasurable quantity of information. Smartphones and mobile devices put it all at one’s fingertips. It is part of an unprecedented shift that puts customers squarely in the driver’s seat. As a result, the balance of power has decisively shifted from sellers to buyers—from products and services to the customers who consume them. Companies now face a simple but critical choice: prioritize the customer experience, or risk going by the wayside. The companies that thrive are those that obsess over proactively meeting customer demand for timely and effortless experiences.

Whether you know it as Industry 4.0, the 4th Industrial Revolution, or Smart Industry, Manufacturing is going through a deep transformation, with changes that are centered around digitalization. While most industries are already on this digitalization path, the disruption is more visible and pronounced in manufacturing because it is expanding virtual data and processes into environments that have been fundamentally about physical products. This transformation has already started, and its impact is expected to be massive. Technical, economic, and social changes are expected across the whole manufacturing ecosystem, with jobs shifting from offshoring back to nearshoring. Strong technology elements driving this digital revolution include 3D printing, robotizing and automation, smart factory with IoT and machine learning, and supply chain digitization. Their impact is profound.

This spotlight report examines: • How Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) or Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) are key enablers of data management and Digital Transformation. Companies can combine many other opportunities with manufacturing operations in a digital journey. • Product lifecycle management (PLM) as a high-value discipline to pair with MOM in discrete manufacturing, and the value of digital continuity across engineering, manufacturing operations, and supply chain. • A robust integration of MOM and PLM technologies and the advent of the Digital Twin (a virtual copy of the product and how it's made) to demonstrate maturity in Smart Manufacturing and the ability to make smart products in smart factories. The IIoT has opened up a world of opportunity for manufacturers. Take advantage of it.

Today’s workforce is increasingly nomadic. Employees use personal and company-owned devices desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones with various operating systems to access corporate resources over different networks from virtually anywhere. Roaming users and cloud-based applications have eroded the network perimeter where enterprises have traditionally focused their security controls. In the wake of this disruption, vendors offered myriad point products that solve only a portion of the security problem. These products usually require costly custom integrations and high management overhead to boot. Making matters worse, traditional security approaches can’t address an evolving threat landscape that includes ransomware, stealthy attacks that dwell in a customer’s environment for months, and threats targeting iOS and Android devices. In fact, the mobile workforce is more vulnerable than ever before.

Customers today are far more concerned about the contents and origin of a product than ever before. in such a scenario, granting them easy access to product information, via digital initiatives such as SmartLabel™, goes a long way in strengthening customer trust in a brand. But it also means expending several man-hours of effort processing unstructured data, with the possibility of human error. Intelligent automation can help save effort and time, with virtually error-free results. A consumer products conglomerate wanted a smart solution to implement SmartLabel™ compliance.

Consumers equipped with smartphones expect fast, convenient and uniquely relevant shopping experiences in store and online. As a result, one-third of shoppers are not satisfied with the in-store experience, turned off by everything from chronic out-of-stocks to cookie-cutter products and marketing messages that speak to the masses, as opposed to them as individuals. In turn, retailers are empowering front-line associates with tools designed to add newfound conveniences, such as locating inventory without having to leave a shopper’s side, to texting them curated product offers based on in-store and online buying patterns and preferences These are just a few of the insights found in Zebra’s 10th annual shopper study, which surveyed nearly 7,500 consumers from North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East to gain a deeper understanding of shopper satisfaction and retail technology trends that are reshaping brick-and-mortar and online stores.

Cox Communications has been a SundaySky customer for five years, running personalized video ad programs through traditional video publisher channels. At the end of 2016, Cox Communications expanded that program to Facebook to see if greater levels of personalization and performance could be achieved by combining the dynamic capabilities of SmartVideo technology with the reach of the Facebook ads platform. The program targets recent Cox website visitors on Facebook and delivers them a relevant video ad with offers related to products and services they had viewed on Cox.com. The program leverages SundaySky’s SmartVideo platform to achieve Cox’s online revenue goals of maximizing the number of revenue-generating orders on its website while also lowering the cost per acquisition (CPA) as the program optimizes.

Companies rely on an expanding set of applications to compete in today's rapidly evolving business environment: - They rely on a fast-growing array of applications and devices (email, collaboration tools, and smartphones/tablets) to communicate and conduct business with customers and business partners. - They are creating, collecting, and repurposing large, unstructured data sets in life sciences, geophysics, media, and manufacturing. - They are collecting, storing, and analyzing more social and sensor-generated data about environments, products, customers, and transactions. The promise of better and faster data-driven decision making based on all this information is pushing big data and analytics (BDA) technology to the top of executive agendas. To succeed, CIOs must place a laserlike investment focus on datacenter solutions that allow them to deliver scalable, reliable, and flexible infrastructure for fast-growing BDA environments.
