Deloitte Insights and Forbes Insights are sponsoring an upcoming webinar: The Fourth Industrial Revolution is Here - Are you Ready? on Thursday, April 12 at 02:00PM EDT (11:00AM PDT). (Click here to attend and calendar this event) At this webinar you will have the opportunity to interact with Dr. Mark Cotteleer, Managing Director of Deloitte's Centre for Integrated Research and Brian Householder, Chief Executive Officer of Hitachi Vantara as they discuss the key findings from a joint Deloitte and Forbes Insight survey of more than 1,600 worldwide executives on their Industry 4.0 Readiness.
The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanise production, The Second used electric power to create mass production, The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. The Fourth industrial Revolution is building on the third and is the fusion of new technologies that are transforming the entire systems of production, management, and governance.
Some questions that Dr. Cotteleer and Brian will discuss are:
- What do executives see as their role in making the world a better place in the age of Industry 4.0?
- How are executives using Industry 4.0 to create new value?
- How are executives readying their workforce for these changes?
- Do executives see Industry 4.0 technologies as a toolset to improve business as usual or enable new business models?
It will be very interesting to see the results of the Industry 4.0 survey and hear Brian's take as the CEO of Hitachi Vantara, a company that is uniquely positioned in the integration of operational technology and information technology for industry 4.0 and social innovation.
