Disrupt or Be Disrupted:

The Impact of Digital Transformation on the Shop Floor

Did you know? The number of connected IoT devices, sensors, and actuators could reach over 46 billion by 2021. (Exponential Technologies in Manufacturing Report, Deloitte, April 2018)

Tony Hughes, Founder and CEO of The Lanterman Group, helps manufacturing leaders, technologists, and others within the manufacturing sector better understand how exponential technologies (3D Printing, Advanced Materials, Internet of Things (IoT), Robotics, Blockchain, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, Digital Design, Analytics, etc.) are transforming the manufacturing industry and how our regional companies can best tap into this disruptive shift to evolve, grow, and thrive.

Many companies in our region are beginning this journey, but many leaders—understandably—have questions:

  • What exponential technologies show the most promise?
  • What is the magnitude of impact that can be expected from adopting and deploying these exponential technologies?
  • How is the manufacturing industry leveraging these technologies to solve current business issues and/or transform our future?
  • What does it mean to become a Digital Manufacturing Enterprise (DME) and how will this change or evolve my business?

Join us to get some of your questions answered and learn how emerging technologies can create value for your company.
