Executive Breakfast

Industrial Digital Transformation

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen logistics issues, we are having to postpone the Industrial Digital Transformation event originally scheduled for next Tuesday, October 25, 2022. We apologize for the inconvenience and will update this page when the event is rescheduled.

Enabling data-driven decision making that spans industrial operations from end-to-end is a complex and potentially overwhelming undertaking. It requires the right people, technologies, and data architecture to be successful. This session is for anyone working towards improving operations and decision making through digital transformation, including IT professionals, executives, engineers, and operations professionals.

Barr Engineering Co.’s Brian Fitch, PhD will walk us through how the company has approached their own digital transformation journey and will show multiple examples of how they have helped clients through various stages of their own journeys. He will discuss how Barr is working to develop the skillsets, culture, expertise, and architecture to enable data-driven decision making, the business drivers behind their investment, and the learnings and challenges they have experienced along the way.

Please RSVP no later than Monday, October 21.
