The Project Data Dilema
Organizations dream of a place where analytics, AI and emerging technologies work together to accelerate and improve procurement outcomes. Data is the fuel for these intelligent decisions. Organizations have stored up plenty of their own, and they believe it’s enough for the journey ahead. As it turns out, big data can be much smaller than you think. You see, you may have gallons of data in the tank, but by the time you distill it down with a specific goal in mind, only a drop is likely to be relevant. So don’t look at your data and say how far can it take me; start with your destination in mind and work out what you should gather to get there.
To navigate this data dilemma, identify what relevant data you have- whether it’s enough to reach a solution, and what you should add from external sources. Once you’ve got the right data blend, reasoning engines can help steer your business with the power of artificial intelligence following vital coordinates delivered by data that are aligned to your business strategy. Our data scientists and category experts access aggregated and anonymized intelligence to provide process support and help you refine the right fuel for thought insuring that from here on out it’s plain sailing

Industry 4.0: Exploring the World of Connected Enterprises
History class taught us about the Industrial Revolution- when steam power changed how things were manufactured. But there hasn’t been just one Industrial Revolution. The manufacturing industry has reinvented itself many times. The first Industrial Revolution is the familiar one. Beginning in the late 18th century, manufacturers use steam engines and hydraulic power and factories to make production more efficient. The second revolution began in the late 19th century when electricity and assembly lines made mass production possible. The third took off in the 60s when advances in computing enabled us to programme machines and networks. Today, we’re at the beginning of a fourth Industrial Revolution. Industry 4.0 is about connecting the digital and physical worlds. Today, most manufacturers’ key assets are a part of the physical world.
The workers machines tools and inventories that drive both the production process and the end product that customers use every day. But emerging technologies allow manufacturers to use data produced by these physical assets to drive insights. Based on data, these technologies will enable the construction of new solutions to some of the oldest and toughest challenges manufacturers face, and growing and operating their businesses, eliminating unplanned downtime in the factory, ensuring you never start work on the production floor that can’t be finished with the material labor- the changes for the industry as a whole will be even broader. As broad as we’ve seen in past revolutions. Industry 4.0 will change the basis of competition, alter how manufacturers win customers, shake up the structure of the manufacturing industry, and give you the opportunity to make history.
