    Automation Alley’s 2020 Technology in Industry Reveal Goes Virtual
    Industry 4.0 in Focus: A Livestream Series

    Automation Alley’s Technology in Industry Reveal is going virtual for 2020! Join us this summer, beginning July 13, as we debut Automation Alley’s 2020 Technology in Industry Report, titled Industry 4.0 in Focus, and launch a livestream series featuring Automation Alley Executive Director and CEO Tom Kelly and the report’s key contributors from industry and academia as they break down the report’s emerging technology trends, case studies and action items for industry.

    As we enter a new decade, the opportunities associated with Industry 4.0 are enormous. 5G technology will unlock the bandwidth to make Industry 4.0 truly possible, collaborative robots will become more agile and configurable and artificial intelligence will continue to become more sophisticated. While these rapid technological advancements provide manufacturers with great opportunities for growth, 2020 is also a time of profound uncertainty for business leaders and the global workforce as we face new challenges around the enormous amounts of data we are collecting, disruptive and sophisticated cyber threats and the impact and fallout of coronavirus, the worst pandemic of our lifetimes.

    Join us as we address these most pressing challenges—as well as the greatest opportunities—impacting the business world today. How should companies prepare in 2020 and beyond for the digital transformation and position themselves for long-term strategic success?

    Episode 1: Inside the Report—2020 Key Findings & Velocity Index
    Automation Alley’s 2020 Technology Industry Report will be available for download July 13! Join us for this virtual livestream with Automation Alley leadership as we discuss the report’s key findings, what they mean for industry moving forward and how companies can position themselves for success as the smart and connected technologies of Industry 4.0 impact the way we do business. We will also break down the report’s Velocity Index, a visualization of the perceptions of the maturity, importance and projected rate of development of each of the Industry 4.0 technology sectors as they impact manufacturing and similar verticals.
