Making Manufacturing Smarter: 4 Must-See Sessions at HPE Discover 2017 Madrid


Manufacturing is one of the industries that springs to mind when we think about use cases for IoT technologies. Yet only about 60 percent of manufacturers see the IoT as important today, according to research reported by Forbes last year. What that means is that there’s tremendous upside waiting to be grabbed by businesses that think big, learn fast, and get a head start on competitors.

If that describes your company, join us at HPE Discover 2017 Madrid, November 28–30, to garner some heavy-duty insights on creating value with the industrial IoT. Here are four sessions that I strongly recommend:

Adapting to the factory of the future requires a phased implementation to deploy new capabilities with existing technologies. Join Christian Renaud from 451 Research and Volkhard Bregulla, HPE VP of Global Manufacturing Industries and IoT, as they take you through the phases of IoT development in the industry. They will cover digitizing manufacturing processes, smart-factory applications, and how to create an adaptable factory without affecting the current foundation of ongoing operations.

Industry 4.0: Urging enterprises to adopt a “growth mindset” (B4542)Thoughtful HPE20160525461.JPG


How can your enterprise adopt and benefit from Industry 4.0? How does one develop a roadmap to get there? What are the challenges one could face, and how does one address them? These are concerns that often impede the transition. Learn how your enterprise can adopt Industry 4.0, leverage the Industry 4.0 Maturity Index, manage change as implementation begins, and ensure stakeholder buy-in. Review the enterprise-wide platforms that are needed in the era of Industry 4.0 and a few best practices for choosing these platforms.

Survey says: What IT and OT say about IoT (B4441)Daniel Newman profile pic Discover.jpg


Successful IoT implementations require convergence of IT and OT. When only 1 in 4 IoT implementations are considered a complete success, you have to ask what is going on?  Starting with a common language and understanding, we’ll explore how to break down the silos to unlock value from processes, data, and analytics. Join HPE for an IT and OT point and counter-point discussion moderated by Daniel Newman, Principle Analyst and Founder, Futurum. Daniel will also share fresh research results outlining IT and OT expectations.

I hope you can join us in Madrid! You can Register for the event here.
