Industrial Digital Transformation: Preparing for the Unexpected

Thank you for your interest, registration is now closed.
If you have any questions please email


Organizations of every size and industry are taking advantage of new technologies, new systems, and new ways of doing business as a result of the digital revolution. And with good reason, digital transformation can lead to innovative business models, products and services, as well as unprecedented operational efficiency and organizational performance.

But how is it affecting asset intensive organizations? How can digitalization help you improve performance and better manage assets in remote and unpredictable conditions? As the amount of enterprise-wide data grows, so do the advantages of having that information available. Yet, harnessing the data and better integrating systems that manage and analyze the data, can seem daunting.

That’s why ABB and Microsoft have joined forces to bring you a half-day of learning, sharing and exploring new technologies for a more agile and connected future.


Who Should Attend?

This is an exclusive, invitation-only event, where customers can gain productive insights on financial and operational performance excellence, asset management and maintenance best practice, and workforce productivity. This workshop is one of a global calendar of invitation-only workshops being held throughout April and May 2018.

If you, or one your colleagues are interesting in attending one of the alternate dates or locations, please let us know.
