Industrial Internet Consortium publishes white paper on digital transformation in industry

July 31, 2020

The Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), an organisation with the goal of transforming business and society by accelerating the Industrial Internet of Things, has announced the publication of the Digital Transformation in Industry white paper.

The white paper focuses on the role innovation processes play in transforming industry. It also covers the disruptive technologies that transform the way companies operate, service and maintain equipment.

It has been designed as a guide that business managers, technology managers and risk, security and safety managers can use to develop business models, leverage key technologies and determine the level of trustworthiness they will need as they begin their digital transformation journey.

“Digital Transformation is the next disruptive wave hitting industry. With this publication, we have described the key technologies that underpin digital transformation and the first steps for any enterprise looking to deploy them,” stated Jim Morrish, Founding Partner of Transforma Insights and Co-chair of the IIC Digital Transformation Working Group.

The white paper covers a wide range of technologies that can enable digital transformation, including Additive Manufacturing, artificial intelligence and analytics, data sharing, and many more.

“Digital transformation is a business strategy with the objective to improve business and industrial models and create new ones. This is achieved through the innovative and principled application of digital technologies along with business and organizational realignment,” added Bassam Zarkout, Founder of IGnPower and Co-chair of the IIC Digital Transformation Working Group. “Digital transformation is not a project. It is strategy led by a vision and powered by a committed program, which may involve multiple IIoT projects.”
