Thoughts Over the Wire

We are excited to join the 23rd Annual ARC Industry Forum

The focus of this year’s forum is Driving Digital Transformation in Industry and Cities.

One of the biggest factors to consider when talking about digital transformation is how it will impact the workforce? Putting people first, and knowing what their needs are is the key to successfully implementing any new technologies in the workplace. Currently, many companies view digital transformation as being technology-driven. Machine learning, cloud architecture, predictive analytics, and IIoT platforms are just some of the technologies driving endless discussion among end users as well as fierce competition among solution providers. Often missing from these conversations is a focus on the human element of digital transformation.

Lachlan MacQuarrie, VP Real Estate Management at Oxford and Sandy Mangat, Director of Marketing at ThoughtWire, will join an exclusive panel to discuss “How Digital Transformation Impacts the Workforce” on Wednesday Feb 6th at 4 PM. Learn about Oxford’s own digital transformation journey, how people were integral to the process, and what’s next for the future of smart buildings. Lachlan and Sandy will discuss the promise of digital twins, unlocking value from IoT, and the killer use cases all smart built environments should consider when starting this journey.  

Be sure to join the discussion or follow the action on Twitter #ARCforum.
