This forum will provide an opportunity to answer the many questions being raised about data collection, and will explore the promises of the utilisation of data from Big Data: will it equal big value?

Infrastructure: Will the smart factory be a real game changer for industry?

Industrial assets will be optimised through the development of the smart factory concept, by implementing new manufacturing practices that take advantage of ICT innovations. This goes well beyond the introduction of new technologies in the production process. The underlying principle is to increase interconnection and integration of the different ICT-enabled components in a single networked system. The trend is being hailed as the fourth industrial revolution, one that will have significant and lasting effects on society as a whole.

- Deep shift in terms of industrial processes or gradual innovation?
- Which industries are leading the way? What are some key deployments?
- A long-term strategic investment in a highly competitive market?

How can innovative products and services improve customer loyalty?

The integration of the Internet of Things in various verticals will also enable the supply of innovative products and services. As more objects become “connected”, new services could emerge thanks to that connectivity (remote control applications) along with value-added services enabled by the data these objects generate. These services will also transform the customer relationship paradigm, from purchasing a product (transactional relationship) to a recurring relationship between suppliers and customers.

- Services: source of additional revenue and/or bundled with an innovative product?
- Towards a new customer-centric relationship paradigm?
