Ray Barratt will speak about digital disruption and the future of Robotics at work, which has grabbed the headlines in recent business media. With a drive to retain top talent and remove unnecessary cost, leadership in this area is disconnected across many organisations – but it shouldn’t be! Ray will present a lively topic for discussion and share many insights from multiple user case studies. The event will focus on robotic transformation and digital change as all companies, whether large or small, are facing the challenge of operating in a native digital world.
With businesses disrupted like never before, Automation, in the form of Robotization, is now an overarching objective to complement digitization. Enterprises are embracing digitization to increase the consumer experience and drive profitability. The result is an eradication of non-added value in a growing marketplace of complexity, where the world of the consultancies, system integrators and OEM software makers converge towards hybrid cloud based consumer serviced offerings.
In a world where the “segment of one” is driving mass customization, how can companies compete to overcome the complexities they face moving forward?
