Tackling the Industry 4.0 Last Mile Challenge

Tuesday, May 14
3:05 - 3:45 pm

A recent McKinsey survey found that 70% of manufacturing businesses are struggling to complete Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT pilots, and those that do are finding it difficult to scale throughout the enterprise.

Industry 4.0 requires end-to-end security, orchestration, and visibility of data generated throughout the entire business. The primary challenge for most customers is the inability to integrate IT and OT processes and technologies, referred to as the “Last Mile Challenge.” This presentation will reveal five foundational pillars to enable enterprise-wide scalability of Industry 4.0 projects and address best practices to better align IT and OT around common digital transformation initiatives.
