Big Data, once just the domain of technology professionals, will soon be the number one issue for all business leaders. Tomorrow’s leaders will make better decisions, not from experience, charisma or intuition but through their ability to integrate real-time data into their thinking.

Based on first-hand research, analysis of disruptive strategies and real-world examples from some of the most innovative companies, Mike Walsh shows you why the real revolution is not just about how big your data is, but a mindset change about how data gets used in the enterprise.

During his presentation, Mike shares:

  • Why the future of smart leadership will be small decisions informed by data
  • How to cultivate a management culture of experimentation, risk and feedback loops
  • Learning to speak the language of data, and translating insights into stories that inspire change
  • Identifying the critical data pivots in your business, the real-time numbers no leader can afford to ignore

Innovation at 200 MPH - Mark Bringle
Monday 7:45-8:45 am | Sagamore Ballroom 3 - 7 | Business Process, Deployment Excellence & Teamcenter Connections

What does it take to operate, excel and win in one of the most competitive series in motorsports, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series?

Racers in this series are tasked with preparing their teams to race almost every weekend for more than 10 months. Added on to that marathon effort is the fact that it is a different style track almost every week (short course, ovals, road course, superspeedway) – raising the complexity and difficulty even more. This series provides what is truly a unique challenge in motorsports.

Mark Bringle, Technical Marketing Manager for Joe Gibbs Racing will talk about how JGR has been fine tuning its processes for over 25 years. With best-in-class ownership backed by a philosophy and principles that lend itself to building championship teams. Integrity, Relentless work ethic, Determination, Perseverance, Team Building are all keys to success…which for JGR has led to over 140 wins and 4 series championships.

“A successful organization starts with its people.”
- Coach Gibbs


The Digital Twin - Tony Hemmelgarn
Monday 4:15-4:45 pm | Sagamore Ballroom 3 - 7 | All Connections

Technology and connectivity are transforming the way products are developed, manufactured and supported through comprehensive digital models that can be interrogated and optimized. These models or “Digital Twins” are comprehensive and accurate digital representations that can be used to predict performance and determine the optimal methods for production. IoT connected smart physical products and plant assets can connect to their digital twins and provide insight for optimization and support.

In this session, we will review Siemens’ strategy and investments in the technology and solutions for the digital enterprise creating the Digital Twin. Examples will be used of digital twins with the required accuracy and fidelity to predict performance and evolve with the physical representation over its lifecycle to provide insight from operations.

Electrifying The Digital Thread - Martin O'Brien
Monday 4:45-5:00 pm | Sagamore Ballroom 3 - 7 | All Connections

The electrical domain architects, integrates​ and interconnects subsystems within their mechanical host. Increasing functionality, market trends, and the megatrends of electrification and autonomous operation are driving more complexity, cost and errors into the process. This presentation describes innovative technology to automate, optimise and verify electrical design, including data integrations as diverse as functional definition and mechanical CAD. Beyond this a digital thread is established connecting all abstractions from product definition through physical design, manufacturing and maintenance, truly electrifying the digital twin.


Realizing the Digital Twin - Jim Rusk
Monday 5:00-6:30 pm | Sagamore Ballroom 3 - 7 | All Connections

The Siemens Digital Enterprise Software Suite (DESS) enables the creation of intelligent product and production models – “Digital Twins”. These Digital Twins are highly accurate smart models that are enabled by a continuous, comprehensive Digital Thread of information and today’s transformational technologies. They simulate all aspects of the product/production eco-system lifecycle.

This session demonstrates how a digital enterprise uses the DESS to create Digital Twins to drive their ideation, realization and utilization processes. Live demonstrations show the creation of product and production Digital Twins that leverage technologies like Systems Driven Product Development, Generative Design, Additive Manufacturing, Virtual/Augmented Reality and Data Analytics. Join us for a look into today’s digital enterprise.
