Join us for this FULL DAY Data Driven Intelligence Series! | Thursday, May 11

In today’s fast paced world, we generate more data, faster than ever before in our history. In order for global companies to stay ahead of the competition, leveraging the intelligence from IoT and big data analytics is necessary for smart decision making. Having complete access to big data not only reduces time to resolution, but also enables companies to prioritize decisions to continuously improve product performance and refine their design and manufacturing operations. This session will explore the strategy and best practices for uncovering actionable intelligence from IoT and big data. Discover how this intelligence drives smart decision making across an enterprise in departments such as supply chain, quality, warranty/predictive maintenance, customer service, product design, operations manufacturing, and sales and marketing. Learn how leveraging the big data you already own will improve product performance and the customer experience.

Actionable Intelligence for Smarter Decision Making Vision: IDC view on Collaborative Clouds, IoT and Analytics

Bob Parker
Group Vice President

Digital Transformation is a business strategy; one that is driven by technology and information. To be successful, organizations must establish an evidence based culture where information is collected, analyzed, and socialized to drive better decision making. In this presentation, IDC will share their research on collaborative clouds, IoT, and advanced analytics demonstrating how these investments are reshaping industry structures.

Smart Manufacturing - As we continue into industry 4.0, digitalization is a priority for global companies. To produce high quality products and maintain customer satisfaction, companies need to leverage advanced technologies to better collect, organize, and evaluate quality inputs so that root causes can be identified, correction actions, can be initiated, and error proofing can be established.

Data Driven Intelligence Series - Part 2

Defining an IoT, Cloud, and Big Data Analytics Strategy

Stephen Bashada
Executive Vice President and General Manager, Cloud and Data Services
Siemens PLM Software

Smarter, more connected products are at the forefront of digitalization. Whether in production on a shop floor, mobile devices in the field, or consumer products in the home, connected products deliver tremendous opportunities for companies to improve product availability and performance. To achieve this, advanced analytics are required during every phase of a product‘s life, from the design and development of the product, through manufacturing, delivery, and use by the end-customer. The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Cloud play a critical role by connecting real things to the digital world and closing the loop with the complete digital twin, giving companies the competitive advantage needed to dominate the market.

Data Driven Intelligence Series - Part 3

Closing the Loop with Product Performance Intelligence

Bill Boswell
Senior Director, Cloud Services Marketing and Business Strategy
Siemens PLM Software

Product intelligence is difficult to obtain in a complex, global value chain as data related to product performance is often fragmented and comes from many different sources within the company and throughout the supply chain. The Internet of Things (IoT) plays a key role in collecting intelligence about how products are made and monitoring their performance in the field. With this new transparency, data will transform the way companies handle maintenance; moving them from a reactive, break-fix strategy to predictive maintenance, eliminating unplanned downtime, saving significant costs and preventing operational disruptions.


1:45-2:30 pm
Data Driven Intelligence Series - Part 4

Leverage BI to Transform from Futility to Value

Mark Halbish
Global PLM Director
TI Automotive

Learn how TI Automotive recognized that while their key business systems were “necessary evils”, they were not producing the valued business insights and driving more intelligent and insightful decision making processes. See how the introduction of world class analytics have transformed the perception and business usage of their key systems, including PLM.

This will be a dynamic, interactive and engaging session where we will explore the pain felt by business users in trying to justify populating highly complex data models and not seeing that data used followed by the recognition that Business Intelligence & Analytics platforms offers an opportunity to truly provide valuable business insights in an intuitive, agile and easy to use manner.

We will break this session into 2 parts –

Part 1 will be a brief description of the challenges faced and how that led to the selection of an Analytics platform.

Part 2 will be a live demo of the Analytics dashboards connected to multiple business systems including Sales, Purchasing, Quality & PLM. We will explore and demonstrate based upon real use cases highlighting methods that lead to data discovery and business insights never seen before. Questions and interactive discussion relevant to the demo will be encouraged and welcomed.
