Conversations for Tomorrow #3
Intelligent Industry: The Next Era of Transformation
Our world today is fraught with unprecedented societal, economic, and environmental challenges. To find lasting, meaningful solutions, leading voices from business, academia, and government must come together to discuss the major strategic imperatives that are shaping the future of business and society. The Capgemini Research Institute’s quarterly review, “Conversations for Tomorrow,” is our endeavor to provide a forum for such an exchange.
At Capgemini, we recognize the importance of bringing together key stakeholders to seize the new opportunities and face the challenges of our volatile world. That’s why the Capgemini Research Institute’s journal, “Conversations for Tomorrow,” was conceived to help leaders and experts identify the major strategic imperatives that shape the future of business and society as a whole.
This edition contains perspectives from an array of business leaders, entrepreneurs, technologists, academics, including Frédéric Vincent, CIO, Renault Group; Catherine Kniker, Chief Strategy Officer at PTC; Norihiro Suzuki, CTO and Head of the Research & Development Group at Hitachi, Ltd.; Torbjørn Folgerø, senior VP, Enterprise Digital, Equinor, as well as our own subject-matter experts on how the convergence of products, software, and services heralds the next big transformation opportunity for organizations.
We call this new era of digital transformation the era of Intelligent Industry. It is an era dependent on software, fueled by data, and defined by technology-enabled sustainability. From allowing automotive customers to select and install the features they want to improve their own user experience, to enabling groundbreaking approaches to drug discovery in life sciences, to significantly reducing waste in manufacturing operations, this is an era that offers an extraordinary range of opportunities.
The next edition of “Conversations for Tomorrow,” will feature the “CMO playbook.”
