    Succeeding in challenging times

    The next wave of leaders in industrial manufacturing will build an ecosystem that capitalizes on the promise of analytics and connectivity to maximize efficiency for themselves and their customers. They will map out their strategies and prioritize measures that will bring the most value to their business, starting now with pilot projects, and building greater strengths in data analytics with cross-functional teams of experts. They will get closer to their customers’ needs, creating suites of service packages that go far beyond the initial machine sale, and expanding opportunities as they create new partnerships outside their core specialty areas. They can succeed if they move forward in smart, deliberate strides.
