Leveraging Industry 4.0 Tools, Techniques and Strategies across

Join us for a day with prominent business leaders as they discuss what drive the core business functions in Industry 4.0 and what young managers need to keep in mind while devising innovative business strategies.

Industry 4.0 is more than just a buzzword or a manufacturing process. It is all about the technological interface that has found relevance across all downstream areas. Cyber-physical systems have enabled the merging of the physical and virtual words for a higher degree of precision and efficacy.

Sapience 2019 will involve two keynote addresses and four panel discussions on each of the four core functions – Marketing, Operations, Finance and Analytics. The conclave will focus on how Industry 4.0 tools, techniques and strategies could be leveraged for driving innovations which will integrate the four functions in this new digital era.

Analytics
11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

‘Industry 4.0’ Through the prism of Data Science

The concept of Industry 4.0 envisages production decisions enabled by web connectivity and system visualization of the entire production chain to make decisions on its own based on complex AI-ML algorithms. This evolutionary stage in production is characterized by both, excitement and apprehension.

Relevant questions often raised cover the entire gamut of preparedness for this new era. It is time to deliberate on some key issues such as how does industry 4.0 enhance the end user experience, which sectors are ready to adopt Industry 4.0 more readily than others and why, and most importantly in the new era where robots form an integral part of Industry 4.0, how ready is the workforce.

Operations
11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Leveraging Exponential Technology for Sustainable Operations

The 4th Industrial revolution poses a big challenge for Indian industries to remain competitive in international markets. The major issues in operations area which are pertinent today and deserve a deeper deliberation are the use of robotics and automation for customized mass production, bringing down new product prototype development time in view of shorter product life cycles, traceability for waste reduction and improved delivery time in supply chain management, and the ease of accessibility of exponential technologies to small and medium industries

Panel Discussion 3
Marketing
3:00 PM to 04:30 PM

Leveraging Marketing Technology for Downstream Value Innovation

“Marketing 4.0” is a stage where the customer is in control today and not the company. The era where marketers assessed awareness, trial, usage and repeat purchase is giving way to a more dynamic marketplace where buyers are constantly communicating with one another. This requires marketing to manage a more complex environment with the objectives of enabling, enlisting, and empowering customers to communicate and advocate for the brand.

Issues for today’s marketers to deliberate on are how to leverage exponential technology to manage customer journeys better, are there significant differences in technology interventions for B2B versus B2C customers, and use of technology to capture customer emotions that drive behavior in an impersonal, internet driven world.

Panel Discussion 4
Finance
3:00 PM to 04:30 PM

Innovation to meet downstream economic challenges

Financial services across industries have to be aligned with rapidly changing customer needs through Industry 4.0 interventions. It involves defining new value propositions, creating new business models, and winning over new customers. Successful adopters of Industry 4.0 will embrace mass personalization and collaboration with partners and competitors through technology platforms, to influence entire value and supply chains.

Thus, some issues that need to be deliberated upon are the convergence of financial services with industrial production and services sector, handling the complexities of mass personalization, dynamic ecosystems and multiple partners and competitor collaborations, and linkages of this convergence to Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of People (IoP)
